Doctor Who: 60th Anniversary special is going to be incredible.
Russel T Davies is on board. David Tennant and Catherine Tate reprise their roles. It’s a dream project for Doctor Who fans.
Neil Patrick Harris will play the Doctor’s new enemy. He’s a very accomplished actor.
I really hope this special will focus only on David Tennant’s Doctor and assistant. The 50th Special brought back several of them. It was ok, but it lacked focus. The story needed the focus of a single protagonist.
Fingers crossed that Bernard Cribbins can come back as Catherine Tates dad. Bernard is 93. He voiced a Jungle Book podcast series in the last couple years.
Seems like yesterday that I posted about the 50th. It seems incredible the 60th is coming next year.
I’m curious how they’ll get around Donna’s memory wipe. The Doctor said her memories of the Tardis could drive her insane or kill her. (I can’t remember which). She had obtained the Doctors knowledge and it overwhelmed her.
Typecasting happens in a lot of successful shows. Shatner will always be Captain Kirk. It’ll be in the headlines when he dies. He’s done a lot of other good work. But it took a decade after Trek to get TJ Hooker.
I’ve seen footage of the Who actors at public events on Doctor Who Confidential. The crowds were enormous. The attention is challenging for any actor that accepts the role. Doctor Who is seen in several countries. David has used that fame to launch a very busy career.
