Rumours You Should Disregard #1

IMDB.com, the website behind such accurate Doctor Who exclusives as Norman Lovett’s much lauded appearance in The Parting of the Ways, have again let accredited nobodies write the cast list that nobody checks  for the grand finale of Series Six.

Don’t so much take this with a pinch of salt rather use the salt for a whole Tequila shot of crazy. Apparently The Grand Moff is not content with bring us past Eleventh Doctors, Future Eleventh Doctors and even Doctor Dopplegangers – no, this time he’s supposedly bringing back the Fifth and Tenth Doctors for episode thirteen of 2011.

Sigh…

Before we unleash the Doctor Who attack dogs on them most of the other information on the site is fine and the idea does have some merit, though that was mostly used up in the fabulous Time Crash (which seems like the perfect excuse to watch it again.)

It would make for a fantastic 50th Anniversary episode and given the plotless yet enjoyable lap of honour The Five Doctors was it would also be fitting but…  it’s not happening. Move along folks- nothing to see here.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    I used to be a regular contributor to IMDb – in fact in I think 2002 I was actually in the top 100 contributors or something – but ironically I stopped being an active contributor because they got too strict on information. (For example, several films I tried to add based upon information in reference books were rejected on the grounds that I couldn’t provide websites.) Which makes it all the more puzzling why and how utter nonsense like this can get in there. And unfortunately you end up with people believing the nonsense, and I’ve seen a few cases where someone saw a bit of nonsense in IMDb (and Wikipedia) about an upcoming film or TV episode, decided “well that’s crap” and didn’t bother watching – only to find out what they didn’t like actually never existed in the first place!

Tell us what you think!
