Great "fake" Doctor Who trailer: Malcolm Tucker IS Doctor Who. Do not watch if offended by bad language!

I saw that a couple of days ago and thought it was fabulous. Must say im incredibly fed up with the will-they/wont-they love stories strung over the last couple of Doctors and am thrilled we wont get any more Clara and the Doctor nonsense (unless they enter the older man/young woman area which would creep a load of folks out). And that guff about everyone coming together to sing to save a planet and its people – made me want to quit watching it was cringingly awful. Lets get back to a dark, at times angry Doctor the kind we got with Christopher Eccleston and at times David Tennett, no more second chances for the Baddies.

Cant believe parents are complaining over Peter Capaldi getting the role as their kids might google his past work and come across The Thick of It. And I forgot about his role in Torchwood where he was excellent. Looking forward to the regeneration now.

Tune In then this. November should be great.

And its surprisingly a true joyous delight to see David Tennant back as the Doctor.

It looks like being a fabulous episode what with David and Billie being back in the show. At the end of David's last episode when he said "I don't want to go!"heart

Ooh I didn't know they'd announced anything new. If DT is in it then I'll definitely be watching it. Wonder how they're going to write him back in?

A report can be read here on upcoming Dr Who events. No idea how they will write David and Billie back in, diehard fans are speculating with details I do not understand in the slightest. I'm happy to find out at the time than have it ruined.

Thanks for the link. I did a google search but found nothing. I'm not going to read anything more – just wait and see how it all happens on the night.

I have never been a Doctor Who fan and don't know a lot about it.  Recently, my son Jessie's improv theatre did a "Tribute to Doctor Who".  John Barrowman happened to be in Edmonton for a Comic Con and heard about the tribute, so quietly sat in the audience and watched their performance :)   He really enjoyed it and came back stage afterward & met the cast (including Jess) & shook their hands.  He didn't want any "attention", so they did not announce he was in the audience.  Jess said he was a really nice guy.

Not that I know much about Doctor Who (ooo… you little liar!) – but Captain Jack in the audience, and a handshake after! So lucky!

I haven't seen many of the ''classic'' Dr Who episodes, so maybe this will be a way to start? I know there are plenty of adults who watch it, and no offence to them, but I feel a bit old to be watching this now. It feels a bit odd because the series that I watched was on tv when I was younger – and it feels like a whole lifetime ago.

@fabfouremily

Perhaps, as they're both on DVD soon, and 'The Web of Fear' in particular has always had a great reputation amongst the fandom. The other one that was found, The Enemy of the World, was sort of overlooked before the rediscovery, but is now garnering very positive reviews among the fandom since the discovery.

I started the classic series with 'Genesis of the Daleks', which is generally regarded as being up there with the greatest Doctor Who stories ever made. It's six parts long and features Tom Baker as the Doctor, as well as Sarah Jane and the first appearance of Davros. Once you get past the relatively slow pacing and seventies-telly production values, it's a fantastic story. For a Saturday tea-time series, it also deals with some fairly heavy issues, such as eugenics and chemical warfare. You can also get a box set called "The Beginning", which features the first three serials broadcast between 1963 and '64.

^ Thanks for the info. Where do you buy them from? Can you get stuff like that on the BBC shop or is it a case of finding it on ebay?

Ah, brilliant! Didn't think you'd be able to get the older series. This looks promising. Thanks! apple01

The BBC have released online a mini-episode prequel to The Day of the Doctor. For those trying to avoid spoilers, this is NOT a part of the 50th Anniversary episode, it shows events before it. It is The Night of the Doctor (and has a HUGE surprise!).

Just watched it on the iplayer (where its also available). Great to see Paul McGann (not a spoiler as he is billed) back as having seen Doctor Who:The Movie three times now i really like his portrayal of The Doctor (it takes a while getting used to him).

Must say i'm really looking forward to next Saturday's special and there are some really good looking programmes on the bbc over the next week.
