According to the bleeding cool website there's been some new
Rumours about Paul magann shooting something for the 50th.

There a bit sketchy at the moment. And whilst I don't wanna get anybody's hopes up, let's hope there true....

McGann.

And yes, we discussed it earlier this week when the Radio Times mentioned it.

I think the Bakers would need serious help from a dietician to get through the TARDIS doors.


And if the rumours are true, it would hardly make sense to Tom to regenerate into Hurt.

No need to be rude to the OP. I for one hadn't read the earlier post so clicked on this thread for info not for churlish comments (and criticism of spelling is a bit unnecessary if you think maybe some posters might have problems with spelling etc). Bit of civility please!

Regarding tom baker aging and size (if that bothers you) could be easily explained away. I'm sure Tom will be taking part somehow.. Don't recall a quote by him denying it...

You think that was rude? Wow, sheltered life.

I mentioned it had already been discussed, that happens all the time on here.

Spelling is not an issue, I don't care how they spell things. But a name? Have enough respect for the actors and the show to get that right. Especially as they obviously just read an article about them!

Out of all the classic Who's who are still with us, I think it makes sense for the' extra' Doctor in the 50th to be either Tom (simply based of him being the most iconic of all the Doctors) or McGann (because he is the Doctor who will apparently regenerate into Hurt).

There's no reason Tom should play the actual 4th Doctor - perhaps a representation of him which would explain his ageing.

You may be upsetting some people with that title, OP.
Some people don't appreciate spoilers, even if they are just rumours.

That's not very fair. For officially announced things, I don't think they can complain, but when someone comes on the internet professing to have insider information which has not been revealed officially, it's just good manners to not put said information in the titles.

What do you think would have happened if someone made a thread earlier this year with a thread title "Clara rumoured to have met past Doctors"?

Well they could certainly avoid straying into a Doctor Who related section of forum.

That reminds me of the joke.


Husband: (to wife) Don't tell me the football score.
Wife: Ok
Husband: I mean it. Not even a hint.
Wife: All right.

Husband settles down to watch the highlights of the match.

Wife: I don't know why you want to watch it though, there were no goals.
Husband:

Yes it was rather superior and condescending in tone which in my opinion is a little rude.. And I'm sure Mcgann doesn't read these posts so I doubt he'd get too offended that someone innocently misspelt his name here. And you are right I do lead a sheltered life.unlik your obvious jet set existence ha

You are a strange little person. Jet set? Because I don't believe what I said was rude? Because it wasn't. I am sure they are thrilled to have a personal protector on the forum though. Especially as they didn't seem to really care about my post. Why would they, it wasn't rude!

It was said in no such tone, not my fault you took it that way.

Nothing to do with him reading these posts, it is just tragic that somebody cannot spell a simple name.

I am honoured that I got your first three posts, a worthy reason to start posting, my 'tone'.

Uh-Oh.

Anyway, I think with the few things we know about the 50th (which I wont mention cos I haven't worked out how to 'spoiler' stuff ) ;I'd now be quite surprised if Paul *wasn't* involved in some capacity.

Really hope so. Despite the issues I had with the TV Movie (looked good, shame about the plot.) I thought McGann was great. Love to see him on screen again.

I liked mcgann but I didn't love him and didn't find him very alien.. That said a second crack of the whip (tv wise) might give him something meatier. Still think Tom will be there. Can anyone find any flat denials?!

I've been on DS for eight years, and it never fails to amuse me how some people like to hijack a thread with their over inflated sense of superiority.

Anyway, I like the idea of Magann [sic] appearing as part of the 50th celebrations. I enjoyed the TV movie and understand he is very good in the Big Finish productions.

I presume the idea behind him appearing would be to give legitimacy to Hurt's being the ninth incarnation, similar to McCoy's appearance in the movie. Other than that I find it a bit fanwanky (yeah, I would think it was cool, too, though).

Tom could just talk in the movie! That voice is extremely recognizable!

Think we need a narrator?

Nowt wrong with a bit of fanwankery yes, I like that idea. Mcgann was the face of the Doctor for around nine years, so I think he deserves at least a regeneration scene.

And as for Tom Baker narrating? I like the cut of your jib

The Doctor must have been played by magann in the series that also featured Davidson and Ecclestone!

Ooh I've found the ignore button.. Handy. Anyway. I always found magann (sic) and Eccleston very similar actors (before eithers involvement. So much so that when CE was first announced I had a nervous feeling they'd be playing the same incarnation. I did like the movie.. As a pilot/first episode it was more successful than Rose.

That was a scene from 'Just Good Friends' between Penny's parents! It was very funny!
