Starting to think that these actors might be used in other parts of the series.

Ahem.

Moffat did say we would have more Doctor Who this year than ever before - maybe he was being literal in that statement.

Get away! Is that a still from the drama? Only for a conspicuously lanky Hartnell I would totally buy that as the real thing. Ian and Barbara look real. Susan's got a bit of hump on her. But seriously, is that a shot from the drama? Looks really, really, really good if it is.

Darth, or Spark1 can maybe back me up here, but there was a line in this month's DWM which said (I don't know if I'm being accurate about this, but let's have a go) "it's a scary thought, but when William Hartnell first played the Doctor he was only five years older than Paul McGann is now."

Speaking about the early days of Doctor Who, and the drama, I have the "Beginning" box set here in front of me which has the pilot episode of "An Unearthly Child" and Hartnell's Doctor is a proper bad bastard. They softened him for the first episode proper, but it was still a show with Ian and Barbara as the heroes, fighting over the soul of Susan from a creepy sick figure of her grandfather "the Doctor". A character that was going to euthanise a fallen cave man with a fucking rock only Ian stopped him. In other words it was Lost In Space and for the early part the Doctor was that creepy double-dealing scientist guy who talked to the robot. The Doctor was like that early on. Mercurial. Untrustworthy doddering bastard, would sell you in a heartbeat. "Oh, my name? Jr Hartley, now empty the till bitch." That sort of guy.

Obviously Hartnell's Doctor became the hero frontispiece (by the time of The Dalek Masterplan he's messianic)...but I wonder how in-depth the drama will go? Will there be a moment when David Bradley throws up his hands and go "look! Am I a prick or not?!"

Of course the other thing the drama has to take in is the fact that this was silly, silly, gubbins to everyone involved. Gatiss has to straddle his skits with David Walliams and marry that somehow with a bit retrospective reverence.

BTW...liking R Girv's theory about Reece Shearsmith casting...feeding into contemporary canon, multiple Doctor anniversary episode? Sounds a bit nutso until you ask yourself why Patrick Troughton as a character would enter into a origin of the programme story if there wasn't a bit of cross-over hijinks planned? Oooooh, Reece better be fucking good to pull that one off. Unlike Hartnell people actually love Pat, that's all I'm saying

Yes, it's from the drama. Someone on GB did a compare and contrast with yer actual footage:

Haven't got this month's issue (probably will soon for the previously unpublished Pertwee interview) but... McGann is 53 now so a mere 2 or 3 years younger than Hartnell was. The one that gets me is that Davison in Time Crash was older than Hartnell was in An Unearthly Child!

Sad news - Ray Cusick, designer of the Daleks has died.

But still, what an enduring and iconic legacy he left behind. Few designers will ever match what he did, create something that has been instantly recognisable for 50 years and probably will be for another 50.

I took this in Waterstones the other day. My niece and nephew loved it, even though the former doesn't really know Dr WHo yet. His design will live to thrill and frighten children for generations and generations to come. RIP.

Very, very sad news. And Matty was totally on the money with his earlier words.

I actually had a mild disagreement with a Who-loving friend tonight when I argued that Cusick should have made some of the kind of money Terry Nation did off the Daleks but barely got anything more than the initial fee because the BBC automatically held the rights to his design. His death has only made me sadder about how that worked out for him.

The drama looks very interesting.

Also I do hope we get an 11 Doctors special, though it will have to be a 4 parter or something to get them all in.

As for villains to come back... the Zygons?

Interesting theory about re-casting the early doctors for a major cross over story!!!! Assuming that is true, who d'you think could be cast as Pertwee...? Guess his son is maybe a bit old for it now??

The whole drama could also be setting up newer fans with the original Susan storyline, they've hinted at it in the past couple of years with the Doc admitting he's been a parent, it would be an obvious way for the anniversary show to go...

Eh? Sean Pertwee at 48 is just getting to the age than his father was when he took on the role.

A few people on Dr Who Forum suggested Aussie actor Richard Roxburgh - who'd be a great shout if he can do the voice right.

Anyone else thinking of getting these? It looks a rather nice set but I've not really read Dr Who books for a very long time

They're a mixed bunch.

Ten Little Aliens - I gave up on it about 50 pages in. It tries to yoke William Hartnell to an Aliens-esque story with predictable results.

Dreams of Empire - a bit waffly at times, but decent with good characterisation.

Last of the Gaderene - evokes the Pertwee era so brilliantly, you can practically hear the soundtrack in your head.

Festival of Death - a fantastic, twisty-turny romp.

Fear of the Dark - never read. Not hugely keen on the author.

Players - never read. But as great as his Target books were, Dicks' prose has been turgid for the last 20 years or so.

Remembrance of the Daleks - an oddity. I mean, it's one of the best adaptations of a TV story, but why haven't they used a 7th Doctor BBC original book? Strange.

Earthworld - pretty dire.

Only Human - not read. Roberts is hit and miss.

Beautiful Chaos - decent. Always good to get another Donna story.

The Silent Stars Go By - never read.

the 'rememberence' novel is brilliant, filled with details that expand the tv eps and add to dr/dalek/time lord mythology.

finally-an ex 'who' actor who got the call from the beeb about the anniversary-

People have surmised that Aaronovitch's recent success with the Rivers of London novels may tipped it in his favour. Plus, y'know - Daleks.
