Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Fifty Times Eleven Edition

by

As a longtime fan of Doctor Who in its various forms and mediums, I am naturally excited to see what Auntie Beeb has up her sleeve for the Big Five-Oh this fall.  Many rumor sites are claiming a multi-Doctor tale is in the works, but with the exception of David Tennant (and possibly Eighth Doctor Paul McGann) there would be a LOT of work involved in explaining/getting around aging actors.  While I would dearly love to see octogenarian Tom Baker in action and the vain Sixth Doctor played by a heavier Colin Baker with thinning hair, I suspect I’m in a minority.  With Christopher Eccleston vocally opposed to returning to the role, even a reunion of just the modern Doctors is kiboshed, which (combined with Actor Existence Failure for One, Two and Three) begs a question…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) kind of wants to see the return of Peri and Ace, regardless of their Doctors, asking: Whether or not we WANT to see it, is a multi-Doctor anniversary tale even a good idea anymore?
