The only thing that makes me wonder is the rumors that have been going around that RTD promised that it would end with something shocking. Given this other "Doctor".. and a shocking ending, that I would assume ISN'T that he's really the Doctor.. what if the timelords are back?


I'd be a very happy fanboy if so.

I'm tired of this last of the Time Lords bit. It's like with the Green Lantern Corps and Kyle, it helped focus on the new character, but was ultimately a loss to the whole over time.

I think it was a good concept for reintroducing Doctor Who to a new generation. It cut down on the amount of backstory. But I think it's worn out. I think the potential for stories is greater with teh timelords back.

Well, RTD isn't ending here: he's ending next year after the next four specials. And he's ending with a regeneration.

As I've said before, I really don't want them back. I like the Doctor's lonely God persona a lot...

Russell T Davies has guaranteed a twist ending so shocking that they might not show an early press screening, because they doubt that anyone will be able to keep it a secret.

No source though. I'm trying to find where he actually said this.

I respectively disagree. I find it's gotten boring and is fast becoming a drag on the character.

Also, (In best Delgado voice) YOU WILL WANT THEM BACK, YOU WILL......

Found it.

He revealed: “It’s called The Next Doctor, and there is a major plot twist at the end. We’re even thinking of not having a press screening, because we don’t think anyone will be able to keep it secret.

Perhaps in a recent LitG?

He also says he hasn't talked to him about leaving. This was from September before even Tennant knew.
