Doctor Who 50.. I mean 9'th Anniversary by FantasyGold Doctor Who 50.. I mean 9'th Anniversary by FantasyGold
This is pretty much me. Yes. I am serious.
I am so sad and so angry about this. Mostly because No classic companion were asked, and No classic Doctor were asked to join,
even though almost everyone wanted to be a part of this! And to top it of: More romance involved with another young female character. Yea, just what we needed.

This is the final straw! Moffat obviously doesn't care enough about the show. And if he does, then I can easily say that I do NOT like the way he writes neither characters nor adventures. Not. At. All.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; This should be a ANNIVERSARY! You should celebrate all 50 years, not just the last 9!
And you should celebrate everyone that made the show what it is today! An anniversary is NOT made to advertise, nor celebrate your ego!
Let it be corny as hell (like with The Five Doctors) but please! I want to see a TRIBUTE to ALL of them, not just Tennant, Smith and fuckity-fucking Moffat !

I'm longing for the day when he has ruined the show to the point that even New Who fans will say "fuck it" and just stop watching. It'll happen some day, I know it.
Rant over

I can understand the frustrations about not having many of the old doctor's or companions in the 50th anniversary episode, but as it has been pointed out before, it would be difficult to include them because many of them look nothing like they did when they were the Doctor, (I mean look at Colin baker, he couldn't pull of the 6th Doctor anymore no disrespect.) I am a fan of the classic series myself, but I feel as though other classic who fans don't give the rebooted series the respect it deserves.I am however very happy about the way Moffat incorporated every Doctor into the story so that they were there with a purpose (to save Gallifrey) instead of just being there just to be there. Yes I agree that it was mostly focused on the last 9 years, but I'm totally okay with that. I have admittedly been a little disappointed with the last season of Doctor Who, but I was very pleased with the 50th Anniversary Episode. If you pay attention, you can notice that there are nods to the classic series littered all throughout the episode. Such as in the very beginning, the episode starts out like An Unearthly Child, with the policeman walking past the Totters Lane sign, and Clara now working as a teacher in the same school that Susan Foreman attended.Also when 10 and 11 "reverse the polarity". Then there was the vault filled with information on all his past companions, the character Osgood with the scarf, not to mention the appearance of Tom Baker as the great curator. As for Tennant coming back, I don't see what the issue is, Tennant was a Brilliant Doctor (my favorite in fact) and I didn't mind the scenes with him and Queen Elizabeth either especially since they were done in a humorous fashion. As for Rose, she wasn't even Rose, she was an interface for "the moment". It was quite brilliant. Moffat had a huge job to shoulder making a good story and pack in 50 years worth of stuff. So I don't see the problem.

sorry about the rant, hope I didn't come off as rude.

No, I just view things with an open mind.
I am a fan of the whole show, not just the rebooted, not just the classic, but the WHOLE show. From William Hartnell to Matt Smith.

I did this comic about a week before the 50'th even was aired. Remember that.

And you can't really say that "the actors can't be in it because they're too old" anymore (which in itself is just insulting) because they included Tom Baker. Very fucking nice too may I add. They could just as much reduce some of the long, boring, "dramatic" moments (that were far too many) and do something similar with the others. And there was no reason to not include old companions in some way (and not just on a stupid piece of board in the background) since they are allowed to age.

I felt that everything classic that was there was there only because Moffat knew he would be so hated if he didn't include anything. If he could he would probably do the whole thing without anything classic in it at all. It all felt out of place and just thrown in.

Even on it's own, I didn't like it. I wont say here what I felt about it because it would take forever to name everything, but I felt it was cheap, boring, had a lot of plotholes, the characters were OOC, a bit sexist, etc etc. I just didn't like it.

I still don't feel this was worth as a 50's special at all. This could've just as easy been another christmas-special with some special features glued on. I thank the gods for Big Finish and Mark Gatiss who know how to celebrate 50 years as you should :heart:

A damn good TV-show until Moffat came. It's a shame, and that's why whe are trying to making us heard.

I wasn't rude. I'm angry at the special, not the fans.

Yes, and I think it was so-so. But that doesn't change anything, he is to 70% still not going to be in the big 50'th anniversary-episode.

Seeing as McGann's participation in the minisode was a secret well kept, I got a feeling there's more surprises on the horizon
