Looking Back…

Well, it’s been a funny old year.

The departure of Billie Piper, the travesty that was New Earth, the astonishing reaction to Love & Monsters - these were all massive subjects for discussion across online fandom.

Equally as popular however was the news that David Tennant was voted Best Doctor in Doctor Who Magazine, the wonder of The Satan Pit, the superb Children in Need concert and the secrecy surrounding Series 3.

While we approach 2007 with strong rumours that David Tennant could be leaving the show in Series 4, here is a list of things to look out for in the next 12 months.
  • Doctor Who returns in the Spring – probably Easter weekend, Saturday 77th April is a fairly good guess.

  • Phil Collinson is revealed as the actual model for the Ninth Doctor 12 inch doll.

  • David Tennant is revealed to be… SCOTTISH!

  • Billie Piper returns to Doctor Who as the Rani, while Noel Clarke returns as the Master. The reason for their facial similarity? The Face of Boe…

  • The Face of Boe’s message is finally revealed… “What yo’ talking about Willis?”

  • The 11th Doctor is revealed to be an animated version of Norman Wisdom, thanks to the wonderful work of Cosgrove Hall. According to Rustie Lee Davidson:
    “The Eleventh Doctor is going to win over the hearts and minds of Doctor Who fans young and old, with his hilarious pratt falls, simpering and calls of “Mishter Grimshdale!”. It’s astonishing really that over the whole history of Doctor Who – going back to when I was a boy – that Norman was never involved in the show, so it’s a fantastic opportunity to redress that balance. Would you like a Kinder Egg?”

  • All this and more, coming to the world of Doctor Who in the next 12 months!
