This first half of the sixth season of Doctor Who is drawing to a close. Only two more episodes to go with the two-part conlsusion ‘The Almost People‘ airing June 4th on BBC America and the mid-season cliffhanger, ‘A Good Man Goes To War‘ the weekend after that. (Unless you’re a Brit or a pirate American, then you’ve already seen ‘The Almost People.’) With months in between the two halves of this season (second half returns in September) what are fans to do to stay busy? Speculate and rumor-mongering!
And it seems we’re starting early because today we’ve got two Doctor Who spoilery rumors. The first isn’t too shocking, but it has been confirmed by big man in the Tardis, Steven Moffat, himself,
[The Daleks] aren’t going to make an appearance for a while. We thought it was about time to give them a rest… There’s a problem with the Daleks. They are the most famous of the Doctor’s adversaries and the most frequent, which means they are the most reliably defeatable enemies in the universe.
Good point, and while I love the Daleks it’ll be nice to not see the, for a bit. They were heavily used in the Russel T. Davies years, appearing in not one but two finales. I’m sure Moffat has an epic return planned for them, and for that I can’t wait.
This second little bit it too big to reveal here, so hit the jump. But I will say this, if one Doctor isn’t enough for you, well…
Consider what I’m about to say as complete and utter rumor. We have nothing to confirm this other than the IMDB page for the final episode of season six. Normally no one would care about casting news listed as it can be potentially false, but this news is too big to pass up. Listed as appearing as The Doctor is not only Matt Smith but David Tennant and Peter Davison.
I’ll give you a minute to let that sink in.
HOLY CRAP! We might be getting a multi-Doctor story and it’ll include three Doctors! Both huge fan favorites and ones we already know truly treasured their time in the Tardis. Both Tennant and Davison appeared together in the short, ‘Time Crash‘ and it was fuckin’ magical. If you’re a fan of Classic Who you know how fun mulit-Doctor stories can be. I mean, if the Doctor is the most fun and interesting man in the universe how is not better when there are multiples of him? With all their different personalities and portrayals, it’ll be more awesome than the screen can contain.
But while I’m freakin’ out about my three favorite Doctors appearing in one episode, I need to reign it in. This is rumor, and like I mentioned all we have to go on is an IMDB page, which Blastr snagged a screen cap of in case it disappears,
At the time of this article the site still lists the information. But knowing how good Moffat and crew are about keeping spoilers under wraps it’s hard to believe one this big would be revealed on a casting page. What are you guys thinking? Did someone really let the cat out of the bag or are we all hoping too much for a three-way Doctor team up?
