I think the big reveal is Eccleston, I think we might get to see all the missing regeneration from McGann to Hurt to Eccleston, a good scene from the Dark Doctor to the Damaged Doctor.

Well I wish they'd say something. Its less than two months til the anniversary and the silence is deafening. How about a teaser at least?

As you can tell, I'm the impatient sort.  Angry

Petition to light up the Empire State Building like the Tardis for 50th Anniversary.

Have you all seen the petition on change.org - its up to nearly 15,000 I think and going strong.

But since the angels want the phonebox, they would all get to the empire state building and get super disappointed. Which means I wouldn't want to be anywhere near there. Tongue

Would a Scottish Dr Who be lazy? Are we ready for a strong change of accent or would you prefer it always be English?

Discuss...

Interesting question.  Roll Eyes

You could look at it from a number of angles I guess. The Doctor is whoever the Doctor is at that time, so if the Tardis chooses to use a Northern British body to host the next generation then that's it. I assume that is how it works, that the exiting Doctor does not get to choose what he is regenerated into. I wonder if that is one reason why the Doctor has always been a man - because his permanent companion, the Tardis, is portrayed as having feminine aspects and when it appeared in human form as Idris in The Doctor's Wife, it was indeed as a woman, in the lovely form of Suranne Jones who obviously wanted to get to grips with the man in her life (or was that just me...)

So, if the Doctor is doomed to be a man - why is he always white and from somewhere in the British Isles (and we have had a few Scottish doctors, accent or no)? Probably because the show is British and originally made for a British audience, so, why not?

I only hope that Peter Capaldi speaks more clearly and slower than the predecessors, Tennant and Smith, who gabbled through their lines to presumably convey a sense of excitement that they were, largely unintelligible. I hope Peter brings some gravitas back to the part. His previous performances shows that he does menacing quite convincingly and his diction is usually pretty spot on, whatever the accent. To this end a Scottish accent would be good, given that Scots generally speak better English than most of us (I know there are exceptions but there are places in England where I am hard pushed to follow simple spoken directions...)

Who is going to rise to the bait??

I'm figuring one of the things they are almost certainly mindful of now, is how a strong regional accent will translate over the pond. Having grown up around a diversity of British accents I guess I'm pretty good at deciphering regional dialect. But I'm still left baffled occasionally.

Obviously some are easier to understand than others, I'm sure we all remember the Cheryl Cole debacle for example. I don't know if that would have proved a problem in the end, but she does have a pretty pronounced Geordie accent so possibly.

Still that said, I haven't heard too many complaints about Game of Thrones, and there are some fairly strong accents going on there at times.

I don't personally mind what accent the Dr has. I think it is a valid point though that they want (for obvious reasons) to distance Peters' Dr from Malcolm Tucker. That could prove to be the one sticking point about the Scottish burr. Still we'll see won't we, and if his début is actually in the 50th episode, then by the sounds of it we'll all see at the same time as well, which will be cosy.  Smiley

He's British. They are all British accents. What is the problem? It's not like he has to have an accent from the south end of Baker Street.

Lol, I think the problem in all truth is that due to the Beebs information lockdown there isn't too much of Who related interest to talk about right now. Hence quirky little articles like that pop up just to keep it in the public eye. I like to see it as the calm before the storm.

Erm...in other news, Karen Gillan looks surprisingly cute bald dontcha think?  Grin

Apparently only the first couple of series were sold to the Ethiopian Radio and Television Agency. This would account for only 11 out of the 106 missing episodes mentioned in the article. The remaining 95 episodes all came from series 3, 4, 5 and 6 which were never shown in Ethiopia.

So I'd be very surprised if this is true.

Also, "Rumours emerged of the lost shows earlier this year when tapes and 16in films of 90 episodes"...  16 inches?! Thats about 6 times bigger than IMAX. If they can't get this right, I don't have a lot of faith in the accuracy of the rest of the article.

A BBC television 'insider' is quoted as having said: “It is a triumph and fans everywhere will be thrilled. “This is a really big deal for the BBC and is set to make them millions from the sale of DVDs..''

Not to mention a big boost to the hype surrounding the 50th I suspect...cynically.

The very first thing a time traveller would do with his invention would be to travel back in time save the missing Doctor Who's and cache them for future discovery en bloc.

This is the most likely scenario for discovery of all 106 missing episodes.

http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2013/oct/07/doctor-who-early-episodes-recovered-bbc

"BBC Worldwide, the corporation's commercial arm, will hold a press conference on Thursday when an announcement about the lost episodes is expected. The BBC declined to provide more details, although it is understood it will make some of episodes available for fans to purchase.

More than 100 episodes from the 1960s featuring the first two actors to play the Time Lord, William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton, were either destroyed or suffered from poor storage in the BBC's videotape and film libraries.

However, weekend reports that 100 episodes had been discovered in Ethiopia are said to be wide of the mark."
