Great performances from him and Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt.
Also from Jenna Louise Coleman and Billie Piper.
Liked John Hurt's War Doctor making fun of Matt Smith and David Tennant's
Doctors behaving like children. Maybe this is a sign of what to expect from
From the start I was expecting the Time Lords to walk out of the painting
and Gallifray to materialise from there as well. Looks like now at the end
Gallifray is either Trenzalore or hiding somewhere on it.
Was sort of expecting the previous Doctors to be edited in in some way and
was hoping but not really expecting Peter Capaldi be in there too until I
saw him. First time a later Doctor has been seen before he's been
Expected that the War Doctor would regenerate at the end since there
wouldn't be much point to him without the Time War.
After the way the story went I'm thinking that maybe Stephen Moffat
originally wrote the part for the 9th Doctor but Christopher Eccleston
declined to take part so John Hurt was recruited instead.
Heard rumours that Tom Baker would be in it but it was seeming less and less
likely towards the end, and when all the previous Doctors appeared I thought
that was it. Then there was the mention of the Caretaker and I figured out
it would be him.
Brilliant to see Tom Baker again. The best moment of the entire story and it
was a brilliant performance between him and Matt Smith.
I'm guessing that the 4th Doctor's took some time off, let himself age a
little and then reversed the ageing effects after he met the 11th. Might
have been when he went off in the TARDIS immediately after his regeneration
from the 3rd and so may still have been regenerating.
Watched the Afterparty. Looked like One Direction got caught in a time loop.
It was so funny. And Tom Baker trying to avoid answering the questions about
his cameo since the interview with him had been pre-recorded before the
So next its the hunt for Gallifrey and a way for the Doctor to continue
regenerating since Peter Capaldi with be the 12th regeneration.
Also enjoying watching The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot over and over again on
the red button loop. Going to have to check out the Zygons covered in sheets
to see which one's were Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy.
Obviously Paul McGann was signed up to film The Night of the Doctor and Tom
Baker was already in the anniversary special so they couldn't join them.
And where ever happened to the UNIT analysis of the stone dust? Was
expecting pulverised Weeping Angels.
All in all a great spectacular episode to celebrate Doctor Who's 50th
