Hm, should be interesting, EVERYTHING is fucking rebooted these days.

Hulk. Spider-Man. Fantastic Four. Futurama was close. frown
Spider mans getting a reboot within 10 years of the last reboot!! frown

Oh well at least we aren't watching the same movie again because now it's more accurate to the comics

When exactly was Futurama close to being rebooted?

Maybe he's thinking of the time when it was stated that none of the cast members wouldn't be coming back??

non-canon Eastenders or Coronation Stree movie?

Because most americans have never heard of those things.

Not an attack on the shows, but on my fellow Americans and their irresistible compulsion to pay good money to see crappy reboots of things that were perfectly good to begin with.

This movie idea scares me in the extreme. The only thing I would find acceptable is Paul McGann reprising his role and having the film be about the Time War, ending with a McGann-Eccleston regeneration.

What was your idea, tnuk? (can't be bothered reading back).

The only way I think this could work is if it were done like maybe a musical. That, or make it canon in the context of the TV series and use the appropriate actor(s) to play the Doctor. I'd love to see Matt Smith and Christopher Eccleston (possibly even David Tennant) running into each other, saying something with timey-wimey ramifications and then teaming up to save a doomed spaceship or rescue an alien civilisartion from the Master, or kick the psychological shit out of a battalion of Sontarans, or face a horde of cybermen, or outwit a cunning group of Daleks who have decided to wipe out Gallifrey before the Time Lords existed.

Shit yeah. That's what I want. I want to see as many Doctors as possible running around Gallifrey trying to kerbstomp the Daleks plan and prevent the timelock that turned the Time Lords into galactic douchebags. I want to see Rassilon, I want to see Omega. I want the Doctor to somehow twist time so that everything from the end of the time war forms part of a closed loop and we're left with Eccleston, the other two regenerations having happened but not happened at the same time, and three new seasons of Doctor Who starring Eccleston and... let's say Donna, Rory, and somebody new. Some kid. Because, dammit, Eccleston is fantastic and doesn't need Billie Piper staring at his arse to convey that.  Donna was the least sexualised of the RTD companions, and with everything since 2005 becoming unwound, Donna would actually be able to join Eccleston on an amazing series of bizarre adventures. Rory is far more interesting than Amy, and if he gets to go off with Eccleston for three years or so before he has to go back to Leadworth and marry her, he can develop that badassness without having had to have been a gay plastic robot for 2000 years. Some supergifted kid could be picked up at some point to provide the Doctor with an intellect closer to his own to play off of.

With new arc-episodes and things like four-parters and the sinister undertones that perhaps all is not right with the universe and the hands of the Master (Derek Jacobi) are reaching across time and space to seize the Doctor once more...

I like the idea of having McGann regenerate into Eccleston at the end. Let's add that in there.

A little bit for tommorow

The special Doctor who mini-episode was recorded yesterday at BBC Television Centre in London, this is the first time Doctor has been filmed there for an episode since Ghostlight, completed in 1989. It was directed by Richard Senior (Let's Kill Hitler).

The episode is written by Steven Moffat, and sees the Doctor offering viewers the chance to win his tweed jacket (as seen in The Doctor's Wife), bow-tie as well as other items, which will be added to the charity's online auction; the winning bidder will also receive a signed copy of the script.

Matt Smith said I'd say the tweed jacket or the bow-tie are the most iconic - although the boots are my personal favourite. I hope people donate generously for BBC Children in Need because it's a wonderful cause - and we've got to beat last year's total.

Items also in the auction include art work from the cast of The Sarah Jane Adventures: Tommy by Anjli Mohindra, Anjli by Tommy Knight, Odd Bob by Tommy Knight, Shansheeth, Anjli Mohindra, The Groske, Daniel Anthony and The Empty Planet, Anjli. There are also signed Pudsey Bear dolls from John Barrowman (Jack Harkness) and Jo Joyner (Lynda). The auction closes on Monday.

The title of the Christmas Special will also be revealed during the evening, with an exclusive preview of the episode scheduled for between 8:00-8:30pm! so its a busy night for Whovians!

I got the wardrobe reference and the Doctor's direct quote from Digory Kirke right away, then saw what the title was going to be and felt promptly disappointed that I wasn't going to have an opportunity to feel all clever and impressed with myself.

Also, some unrelated, possibly linked to before media content: the Ballad of Russell and Julie.

So the Doctor Who movie will NOT be a reboot or spin-off according to Steven Moffat. He says whoever is the Doctor on TV at the time of the movie's production, they will be the Doctor in it.

More here.

"If and when". So it looks like it's up in the air at the moment. Moffat and Yates want different things, and it's probably going to spend some time in Development Hell before it gets made. With enough compromises on various things that both the writer and director are somewhat happy and the fans will be completely enraged.

Sounds just like the McGann movie. Which I quite enjoyed, but it pissed a lot of people off.

McGann, Eccleston, Tennant, Smith. The four doctors. I'm sure that with a decent budget and a kickass script they could pull that off and satisfy the vast majority. But to be honest, I'd prefer three or four new episodes to a movie. Or I'd like to go see some of the older stuff on IMAX. I can't be the only one who wants to see that.

I'm going to stop typing now, and think about that for a moment.

Two lost episodes have been found

Galaxy 4 part three and The Underwater Menace part two have been found, sadly these do not complete any storys, and neither is likely to feature high on a fan wish list, but any find is a marvel after so many decades and each episode has its own merits. 108 episodes were - until now - missing from the BBC archive, so its 106 now smile The BBC restoration team are busy with them ATM.

Both where found in the collection of Terry Burnett, who used to be an engineer at TVS (the former ITV franchise based in Southampton), which proves the chances of finding material is still possible!
