Planet Gallifrey: Whisperings

Whisperings

What with everyone wondering if Tennant will stay for series 5, heres a mini post from DigitalSpy about his withdrawal symptoms.

David Tennant has revealed that he is missing his Doctor Who colleagues during his sabbatical from the hit show.
"I'm excited to be doing Hamlet," he told Doctor Who Magazine, "but I have got very at home in Cardiff. I love that crew. I love that set-up. I love the show, so I'm missing that. I miss Russell's writing. Shakespeare's all right, but he's lacking in spaceships"
(Full article can be seen here)
And while we're on the subject of Hamlet and actors who are in it, some of the latest whisperings are that Patrick Stewart may be the 2nd big name to be cast for the 2009 specials (the first rumored to be Albert Finney)
This obviously depends on whether he has the time to to it, and whether he wants to accept the role. IF he does however, then according to the wonderful Eddie on the DWF:
  • There will be no facial prosthetics or heavy make up
  • There's a "killer" costume
  • Patrick is keen to play someone who is "not the good guy for a change" (although the character is "not all bad")
  • It's a significant enough character to be either moved, removed or revived later, depending on his availability
  • He's keen to work again with David Tennant and "have the relationship evolve"
So there we go! Obviously these are just rumors and aren't confirmed yet. But people have already began speculating about Time Lords and Gallifrey...
UPDATE: Now there are whisperings of Stewart playing the Meddling Monk - another renegade Time Lord (read about him here
And Lee (DWF) also put in these words:
  • Daleks (a Miff written 2-parter to open series 5)
  • Ice Warriors
  • Zygons
  • Celtic companion. Non contemporary (female)
Again, theres nothing to confirm any of these. But still...

*sigh* Is anyone else getting fed up of these imaginary fanboyish wish lists being passed off as spoilers.

Combom said...

i read them and yes, they seem more like fanboy wishes!

so far in DW, they bring back TWO classic monsters a season, sea devils are for the TV movie "season" next year. although id love to see ice warriors and perhaps its true, the BBC seems to already be pimping the zygons, and have been for a while :)

returning classic monsters; and when they return, they keep coming back lol

s1 Autons / Daleks
s2 Cyberman / Daleks
s3 master / Daleks
s4 sontarans / Daleks

ok s3 had "de-evolved macra" (whatever de-evolved is lol), but they werent major baddies

Anonymous said...

I would absolutely LOVE the Ice Warriors or the Zygons to come back. I love them. Also I'd like to see this as the finale:
The 4 remaining Time Lords-The Doctor, The Master, The Rani and the Meddling Monk- are summoned by Rassilon and have to suffor a fatal blow...each of them must work together to defeat 1 of every enemy the Doctor has faced. But 1 of them will die. (being David who will regenerate *NOOOOOOOO* but it has to happen sometime)

"engage"

*camera points slightly upwards while Stewart slowly pulls his hand back, holds it for a second then points towards off screen*

thedoctorwho07 said...

But the Moff said that he was definitely not bringing back the Daleks because they're "making nostalgia for the future, not the past".

Combom said...

yes he did, then a week later he said daleks would always come back, so i suppose the BBC "got to him" :)

Simon said...

He's also said that he would continue the tradition of starting a series off with a self-contained more light-hearted story to ease viewers back in.

A two-part Dalek story doesn't exactly fit the bill.

The only rumour I've heard so far that seems in any way believeable is Albert Finney as Churchill.

Sarah Jane said...

I'd love to see Patrick Stewart as a baddie (he'd have to be a Time Lord though, wouldn't he?... in any case, I'm craving some Gallifrey stuff, bring it on already! ^^), and I bet him and Tennant would enjoy continuing to work together.

I hope the Daleks don't come back for a while, though... getting a bit tired of them, and that's not good. :P

I'm sure I'll enjoy whatever Moffat does, though... it'll be a nice change of pace from Russell's stories, and I really like the episodes he's written.

Anonymous said...

I really hope tennant stays for series 5 that would be great!! :)

Anonymous said...

You can't read oo much into what Tennant said to DWM. Of course he's going to be polite and say he's missing it.

If I had the possibility to say just three words to Steven Moffat ahead of him taking over DW they would be "NO MORE DALEKS", because, seriously, they've been over used since the show returned.

Anonymous said...

I'm pretty sure Moffat's comments so far rule out a Dalek two-parter to open series 5. That seems quite unlikely.

A non-contemporary companion, though, would be good - and for that matter, I think there should be more companions again. Three seems good. Maybe you could then pair up the companions rather than forever pairing them with the Doctor.

I think the Daleks should be used less, but not forgotten. There should be fewer Dalek invasions of Earth because those always end with some cheap plot device because there's no other way to do it. Ironically, given their poor reception, Manhattan / Evolution was probably the better way to do Daleks in the future - less Daleks, smaller-scale plans.

lostdj said...

I really can't see them bringing back the Meddling Monk, although it would be great to see the character back. What we do know though for certain is that David Morrissey is in fact a younger version of the first doctor (William Hartnell)for the Xmas 2008 episode!!!

Gangster Gurps said...

I think that Series 5 should be made aroun River Song and Jenny(Doctor's Daughter).

Jenny is still alive and The Doctor still has to meet River Song because she reconised him with David Tennant's face.

I also think David will be staying half way through series 5.

Anonymous said...

Well lets hope if David Morrissey is playing the first doctor (younger), he doesn't kill the story by turning to the camera and wishing them a merry christmas like Hartnell. Also if this is true, Susan wouldn't be born yet. So maybe we'll get to find out who her mother is.......

thedoctorwho07 said...

That quote from David Tennant is from and interview in Doctor Who Magazine's last issue.

Kelsey said...

Non contemporary companion? I'm interested!

And PLEASE, for the LOVE of GOD, can we have a season WITHOUT Daleks?

Where did you hear that David Morrissey is playing a younger version of the First Doctor?

Melissa said...

I agree that they should stop bringing the Daleks back EVERY season. Bringing them back so often wears the viewers and the suspense out.

Peter said...

Are you kidding? I mean it wouldn't Doctor Who with out them it like haveing Star Trek Next gen with out Patrick Stewart! I mean come on they have to be in there! What about the Cyberman? umm they've been in almost all of the series! It would be a difrent show with them!

cassandra-elise said...

*Squees* I hope that rumour about Patrick Stewart is legit. I love him, and since I won't get a chance to see David and Patrick in Hamlet *sniffles*, I'd really love to see them work together on DW.

Melissa said...

I didn't mean that they shouldn't EVER bring the Daleks back. I said that they shouldn't have them in EVERY season. They should have at least a few Dalek-less seasons between the times that they DO bring them back.
In the meantime, new monsters or other classic monsters will do just as well to scare viewers if they are properly written.

Bert Vimes said...

What annoys me isn't the fact that the Daleks are always back, it's that too many episodes are based on earth either in the modern day or in the past. I hate to gabble on, but really they should be making more episodes on wierd new planets, or instead of reviving old monsters like they have been doing, how about the doctor goes to their planet instead of them coming to earth???? Another thing I don't like is that the makers try to make it so that it reflects what would happen if these monsters really came to earth, as if it's trying to interact with its audience [ooohh, contraversial]. It doesn't need to because it already has a reputation with its audience, and so they should really be focussing on being more creative!

Sorry for being an old grump, but really...

Peter said...

o.k get where your comeing from what about Daleks in another world?

Bert Vimes said...

Well that would work! I think it happened in the old series where there was some other alien species that the Daleks were trying to be evil to, and the doctor went and helped the species, and it was great. None of this empathising with the human race rubbish. There's only so much of that that I can take. Maybe it's just me?

Peter said...

No I understand we live on earth but we already know about it would be more interesting on another Planet!

Bert Vimes said...

Exactly my point! It's not like the BBC CGI dept. can't make up a false planet (then again, in the special at the end of the last series we saw that same shot of the planets igniting or whatever about 12 million times).

Peter said...

they could make up something to.!

Anonymous said...

Didn't they outright admit for a previous series that they couldn't do that many alien planets because of budget limitations? If you look at the alien planets they have been to, we don't really see the outside world, it's all inside, with humans - e.g., The Impossible Planet, Midnight. And New Earth totally doesn't count. I think they do need at least one new "real" alien planet.

thedoctorwho07 said...

They should have an alien planet, but outdoors. Possibly like the planet where the cat people were in Survival?

IAmATVJunkie said...

I think it's a great way to keep the show in the public eye during the off year.

And sure, I'm getting a little bit put off by it all, but without my Google News Alert I probably wouldn't see a third of all of this news, or rather, "Stuff that comes out of Russell's mouth."

Because there is a difference between news and "stuff that comes out of Russell's mouth."

And we all should remember that.

Knur said...

The Dalek stuff was cool for series 1 and the "there's more of us Daleks here and there" shtick managed to uphold its credibility in series 2. Then it all degenerated. The Cult of Skaro should've emergency-temporal-shifted to season 4 for a minor story to return with Davros in season 5. Now we'll probably need a couple of years to get over the Dalek glut. Thanks RTD!

Now as for cap'n Picard... The first thing that came to my mind was some sort of Sabalom Glitz character. He often did that sort of stuff on undercover missions on Star Trek.

Peter said...

I dont understand what knur means about Cpt. Picard But this is going to be an awsome year for Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Adventures (yes I watch that to!) What make it strange is that some how Davros survives the blowing up of his "Planet" but lived which is strange then again its Doctor Who!

Peter said...

Strike that I mean to say Sarah Jane and Doctor Who!

Melissa said...

Did David Tennant sign up for ALL of the specials and series five? Or for just the specials?

Peter said...

I think that he sign up for al of them Im not sure!

thedoctorwho07 said...

I think the BBC have only said he has signed up for the specials, because if they had said he had signed up for series 5 there wouldn't really be any speculation as to whether he's in it.

The First Doctor is coming back....................................

MikeTheC said...

Patrick has impressed me more since he started doing sci-fi beyond Star Trek than when he had only done that. Many of the characters he's played have been genuine in feel, whether good or bad. And perhaps in some ways, playing the role of Charles Xavier has served as a better preparation for playing a Gallifreyan Time Lord than others.

I don't really object, as perhaps some others have, to Patrick playing a Time Lord. I do, however, find it a bit ironic that he would be playing one, based on comments from Lala Ward who said in an interview that, while she was playing the role of Romana II, he poo-poo'd sci-fi in a conversation they had as they'd shared an elevator ride. (Little-known factoid there, I suppose.)

As a creative type myself, when I'd first heard of this rumor, my mind went to the possibility of Patrick playing a racial memory recall for Jenny, the Doctor's genetically-spawned daughter. Of course, with an established, "major name" actor, you don't normally use them in second- or third-stringer cameo roles, and you don't use them lightly.

Frankly, I'm glad to see the notion of harking back to actual-older actors to play Time Lords, instead of just casting everyone we see as post-pubescent twenty-somethings who do nothing but act like conflicted metrosexuals.

"Time will tell," the Doctor said. "It always does."
