Hey I know, let's sit here and compare apples with oranges. I mean RTD with Moffat.
Or how about we agree that both writers have their own strengths and their own weaknesses like any other normal human being in this world and be done with the silly debate.

Nothing gained and nothing learned from an RTD vs Moffat discussion. They've both had successful runs, and have both provided us with their own vision which (thankfully) has kept the show fresh.

No Eccleston in the 50th Anniversary Special.

Rats.

I was holding on to a desperate hope that he and/or McGann would be in the special, since McCoy acknowledged he is not going to be in it.

McGann is still a possibility as rumors that hit just before Tennant's casting was announced stated that the past incarnations of the Doctor that would appear in the 50th anniversary special were 1, 2, 8, and 10.

So there's still hope.

Thanks for sharing; the 'rumors' made my day.

Here is an interesting nugget I found on the internet: what would have happened if David Tennant had stayed on for another series of Doctor Who? Steven Moffat reveals,
Quote:
I only had the roughest idea. Had David stayed for one final year, it would certainly have been his last, so my pitch was that it would start with the TARDIS crashing in Amelia's back garden - as now - and a terribly battered and bruised Tenth Doctor staggering out. Amelia finds him, feeds him fish custard (no that was for Matt, it would have been something more Davidy) and generally helps him. But we, the audience, can see he's in a truly bad way. Dying maybe. Eventually he heads back to his TARDIS, and flies off.
But when he returns - many years later for Amy - he seems perfectly fine, and indeed doesn't remember any of those events...And of course over time, we realise what we saw was the Tenth Doctor at the end of his life, about to regenerate.
Events that we return to in Episode 13...

Because Trekkie sounds like junkie, which was how the insult was intended.

I'm a STAR TREK FAN. I was a TREK fan before the term TREKKIE was invented. Back when just saying that you watched STAR TREK would get you insulted. So I have always proudly told people that I am a STAR TREK fan. I don't give a flying fornicating warthog what others may call me...I know what I am. I'm a STAR TREK FAN.

I started watching Doctor Who in the early 70's with Jon Pertwee....and have been a DOCTOR WHO FAN ever since. Some people may want to argue that this writer or producer or doctor was better than that writer or producer or actor....fine, whatever rows your boat. But in the end you are either a DOCTOR WHO FAN or you are a WRITER or PRODUCER or ACTOR FAN.

Nope. You're wrong. I can actually post about something that's not a big deal.

Oh, I'm sure you CAN post about something that isn't a big deal to you....but to respond to a post that was not insulting you with Chill the hell out shows that it is a big deal with you.

The name isn't a big deal. Freaking out about it kinda is cause that's just sweating the small stuff that doesn't matter.

That thing about what Moffat's first season would've been like as David's final season is pretty insane. We really would've gone into overdrive looking for examples of non-linear Doctors like in Flesh & Stone.

Some people prefer Moffat. Some people prefer RTD. It doesn't matter which way you role .

I think we all need to just find something we can agree on, like how the 2nd Doctor's Beatles haircut is hilarious.

What if I prefer the comics to the show? Does that get me hit?

IT WAS A SOMBER HAIRCUT AND REFLECTED THE PAIN HE SUFFERED OVER HIS LOST FAMILY.

That to me is absolutely the Cybermen at their best. This monstrous robotic Zombie that just keeps revealing body horror as you take it apart. Amy lifting the head and a mass of tendrils attacking her is still one of my favorite Who images.

years ago, I used to DESPISE that term others gave to Doctor Who fans in referencing us...

'Whovians'

I've always found that to be disgusting-sounding...

'Doctor Who fan' will always work for me, so keep that 'Whovian' rubbish to yourselves...
