Dr. Who: 50th Anniversary Predictions (SPOILERS)

So, this year celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, woohoo! Now, as a Whovian (the term given to fans of the show), I’ve put my thinking cap on as to what the celebratory episode could involve…

Billie Piper/Rose Tyler Returns:

Now, we all know the current situation with Rose Tyler. After getting involved with Torchwood, she ended up falling into a parallel universe. It was a bit sad, the Doctor said “Rose Tyler…” and she never found out the end of the sentence.

Until she came out of the parallel universe two more times. One of them was in the episode with Donna Noble (Catherine Tate), who made a mistake by “turning left” instead of right at a car junction, which lead to history being changed… Rose encouraged her to change it back, it worked, and at the end, Rose gave Donna a message to pass on to the Doctor (“Bad Wolf” – a little phrase they exchange between each other which basically means everything has gone horribly wrong).

Later on in the same series, the Doctor and Rose actually meet, and at the end of the episode where the Daleks return, the end of the sentence is revealed (not directly to the viewer, but we believe that it is “Rose Tyler, I love you”). They kiss. Aww… But due to Donna doing something dodgy surrounding the Doctor’s regeneration process, they create a “two-way biological meta crisis”, which basically means “two doctors”, one with 900 years to his belt and two hearts (the normal one), and one that is human like. The human version of the Doctor stays with Rose in the parallel universe, since they do love each other, after all…

David Tennant/The 10th Doctor Returns:

Which leads us onto David Tennant’s return as the 10th Doctor. Now, how can he return, when Matt Smith is the current Doctor and has regenerated? Simple. He returns as the human version that lives with Rose Tyler in the parallel universe.

John Hurt’s Appearance:

Now, this isn’t really significant in the fact that John Hurt hasn’t appeared on Doctor Who before, but what has been helpful is that he accidentally let slip some key bits of info as to how he would be involved. Apparently, he is playing the actual 9th Doctor (which initially was Christopher Eccleston, but since he refused to partake in the episode, Moffat has now come up with a clever way of editing the story around it). The reason for this being that The Doctor supposedly forgot about the 9th version of himself due to the “shame surrounding the Time War”. What this means is that John Hurt’s character slides in and makes Christopher Eccleston the 10th Doctor, David Tennant the 11th, and the current Doctor Matt Smith, the 12th.

This is also important, as it means that the Doctor is nearing the end of his days (possibly), as he only has a maximum of 13 regenerations, and he’s on his 12th… Uh oh…

The Return of Queen Victoria I

Another rumour is that Joanna Page (another confirmed actress that will star in the episode, seen above on the left) is playing Queen Elizabeth I. Images from the location where the episode will be filmed shows that Joanna was wearing an Elizabethan-style dress, similar to that of the previous Doctor Who episode with Queen Elizabeth I in, where she spots the Doctor and Martha in the Globe Theatre with Shakespeare and orders her men after them. So basically, something must have happened that made her do that…

Maybe this could explain the meaning behind the order that Queen Elizabeth gave when she saw him last, or am I missing something? It would be interesting to explore this, as I think this may be a future storyline…

The Return of the Zygon:

I’ve only watched Doctor Who since 2005, so won’t know much about these creatures, other than the fact they are Zygons… How they will be involved, I do not know…

So that’s it! I guess all we can do know is wait and see what Moffat has done to celebrate the occasion.
