Latest DR Who Rumor

Post by Dazzle1 »

Latest Rumor is David Tennant will reprise the role



Tenant was the most popular of the Doctors in New Who

I would put him 4th all time after Tom Baker, Pewtree and Troughton.

Pair him with a Martha Jones companions and make the Chibnal era a dream sequences during the Calpaldi regeneration

The whole Timeless Child arc has been a bit of a shitshow. Giving the Doctor a secret origin, at this late stage, was insane. Particularly as the Doctor was always supposed to be mediocre by Time Lord standards. Now, the Doctor is a Jesusy "chosen one" who appeared from nowhere and was the source of all Time Lord regeneration.

Jo Martin has been pretty good as the Fugitive Doctor. But we still haven't had an explanation of how she has a Police Box-shaped TARDIS and why she calls herself the Doctor. Maybe the Division re-acquired the Second Doctor immediately after his trial and sent this extra incarnation on missions before the Third Doctor started his exile on Earth? I'm not sure even Chibnall knows, seeing as he just seems to have pulled the idea from his shitbox.

Jodie herself has acted well in other TV shows and movies. Yet here she has been directed to play the Doctor as a cut-price Jane Horrocks. Bit of a waste, really.

The return of RTD and potentially Tennant is most welcome at this point.

The Timeless Child served the purpose of why The Doctor could exceed the 12 regeneration rule. They had been fudging the rules for the Master and the War Doctor. They tried to make it significant that the Doctor had all the missing memories, but no one was going to write stories about them unless they were needed to help out a flawed story.

The Flux storyline made a reference to the other universe that the Doctor came from and could have started a whole line of seeking the Child's origin. But that would hav needed all the Earth stories.

They should have just killed off the doctor and had a young time lord take his place. Or just end the show.

That's not right, is it? The Eleventh Doctor was granted at LEAST a full cycle of regenerations by the Timelords at the climax of the events on Trenzalore. There's no danger of her hitting the limit for a long time yet.

The Timeless Child stuff was risible. Very much the equivalent of a big "nothing will ever be the same again!" comic event. But, you know? I would ALMOST have been willing to forgive it if the general quality of Chibnall's tenure hadn't been so Christ-punchingly terrible. A brilliant writer might even have been able to pull off yet another "secret history of the Doctor" storyline. Chibnall is not such a person.

I would be astonished if David Tennant reprised his role. Just - he's older now, and Who is such a demanding shoot. Would he really want to step back into it? I know that Russel T. Davies is returning as showrunner, but I can't imagine he'd want to bring Tennant back either. It would be really weird. He might be reprising his role for the 60th anniversary special in a few years, but that's another matter.

As for the show ENDING, I don't agree - but I do think it needs a break. It's been running constantly for more than a decade, and even if the quality had stayed at its apex, you just can't keep something this high-concept going, with the whole universe inevitably under threat at the end of every season. Just give it a rest, let it come back with a bang in a few years.

But, alas, it's one of Auntie's only consistent moneymakers. I imagine they fear letting it go fallow. Ah, well. Not the end of the world.

They have had the Young Time Lord already, despite the character not being on the show since 1979, Romana is among the most popular companions in the show's history.

No? Tennant's return might not be utterly impossible, then.

Im from Swansea and Cardiff are our arch rivals
(its actually a lovely place and way better than the crap hole Swansea has become. Dylan Thomas called it (Swansea) 'That ugly, lovely, town'. In a competition to update that slogan the winner was " its a pretty shitty city" 😂)

So I'm just messing about - Cardiff is nice, except its full of people from Cardiff :giggle:

In Chicago we used to make fun of Berwyn. Nothing wrong with Berwyn other than it was the flattest piece of boring nothing strip malls in the world.

It will be three anniversary specials with David Tennant in November/December 2023 with Ncuti taking over sometime during the Christmas episode.
