supposed to be reckoning for all the decisions the doctor has made in his many lives, that Peter Davidson, Patrick Troughton, Tom Baker AND Paul Mcgann should be in the program and not just David Tennant and Matt Smith fe3els like they have just picked the two most recent pretty boys

YABU the story line is focused on the current series and the time between McGann and Eccleston so it's more relevant to the current doctors (plus you have to avoid the issue of the Dr suddenly being a fat 65 year old ...)

So exciting to see Paul McGann again! So happy he finally got a regeneration!! It bodes well for the Day of the Doctor - if Moffatt had THAT up his sleeve for the prequel, who knows what's coming in the main event?! * explodes with excitement *

Eek The Night of the Doctor was good!

DS1 is five and was sat next to me shaking with a mixture of fear and excitement! When it finished he leapt up 'Mummy why was it so short, where is the rest!?'.

All to do with seeing Paul McGann in the teaser. Why this is so wonderful, I'm not sure - but he's very happy!

My husband is very happy, too. He said Paul McGann was the Doctor from the movie, I have no idea who he is. I know he's no David Tennant. ;)

I love Dr Who but get so lost in it all - makes me feel a bit dim thank god for the tinterweb to fill me in on all the bits that go over my head

My DH had a fangasm watching Night of the Doctor. We're going to watch Day of the Doctor in 3D at Pictureville. Squeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!

I bloody love Doctor Who.

My DS ran into my room about an hour ago, gibbering with excitement. Honestly, for a moment I thought we'd won the lottery!

They're repeating the Doctor Who Never Mind The Buzzcocks special with DT on BBC2 right now.

I'm another who can't wait to see what Peter Capaldi does with it, I think he'll be brilliant.

I am so desperate to tell DS that we're going to see it at the cinema but then I also want to keep it as a surprise. I'm torn!!

I've reported my own post, hopefully HQ will delete it.
blush
I got totally carried away...

Shit, sorry sorry sorry, total spoiler, I'm reporting my post xx

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

They've got David Bradley doing a brilliant Hartnell for another program so could have used him surely

As Rose is in it as werll I thought/presaumed that DT was the human/Dr rather than the proper incarnation of the Doctor, if that is the case it would not make sense to have other incarnations in it.

I've been watching since Hartnell, although only glanced at Davidson and Colin Baker, they were none too good. I adore Ecclestone and Tennant. Smith is more wooden than Thetford bloody forest, I only watch because the dcs do, and have been known to read and glance at the box occasionally. Clara is good and I've watched more of the recent ones. I will be watching the new one with interest.
I'm also looking forward to Peter Capaldi, it's time we had a slightly older doctor again, and I've fancied him since The Crow Road. <aged old bat emoticon>

Same here Piff.
I was checking the website everyday to see if/when my local cinema was releasing tickets!!
DM is having the Toad and I'm going to enjoy 10 and 11 in glorious 3D

and Nandos

Got photo booked with matt smith but the kids do not want the parents in the photo so the can show their friends. Do not know what is most upsetting the kids embarrassed by us or not getting close to Matt. An autograph with Colin Baker is £15 so he will be getting a few bob.

PresidentServalan Thu 14-Nov-13 13:56:42

PiffPaff Noooooooo - am now sick with jealousy!

Steven Moffat is a law unto himself anyway but it seems to make sense that 10 and 11 are in it - I think the trailer mentioned that whatever it is happened in the tenth Doctor's time.

And although I have been watching since the Pertwee days, I have to admit that DT is so so shaggable!

Fecklessdizzy Thu 14-Nov-13 13:54:58

Gah! I know! I really want to go but my Whovian mate is working that night and made me swear not see it without her ... sad

Matt Smith is ver sexy - have you seen his Bowie-esque photoshoot for Empire Magazine from last year? Hmmmmm <drools>

Piffpaffpoff Thu 14-Nov-13 13:52:20

I've just bought tickets to go and see Day of the Doctor at our local cinema in 3d on the 23rd. They are showing it at the same time it's on the tv. David Tennant in 3d.......gringrin

steff13 Thu 14-Nov-13 13:50:57

^Matt Smith and David Tennant are the only two I rate anyway!
Flees to the hills ...^

I'll be hiding with you in those hills. ;) I love and adore David Tennant, and Matt Smith has grown on me.

Watch The Night of the Doctor like Piffpaffpoff said.

It's AWESOME!! Although it's slightly answered one question for me, it's now replaced it with a few more!

(I won't say anything so those that want to can watch it for themselves).

I wish Christopher was not so snotty - twould be lovely if he had joined in the fun.

I love Christopher Eccleston
