two pictures i thought were funny :P
Reg should we lock you up now or later?
Love the poster. They he put in "Bad Wolf" and love the way the Daleks are destroyed. Not that I have looked into but I thought there would be more "past" doctors appearing in this since it's the 50th anniversary.
Well mostly there will be no older doctors in it but in a way they might all be in it just like in the name of the doctor with cgi where they might just make david walk into the second doctors tardis something along those lines will probably happen
As for older Doctors, Peter Davison and Sylvester McCoy still absolutely look the part. McCoy hardly looks much different now than in his last appearance (alongside McGann) and Davison reprised the role with great success in the Time Crash short. I think Davison being older now would make for an even deeper portrayal of the character.
Loving, absolutely loving, Hurt's outfit in that picture however! Remnants of the 8th's waistcoat and ascot underneath the leather coat and heavy boots that 9 showed up in.

The thing is, they had to do the whole "the Doctor saves everyone!" theme but of course realised that they can't really do that so some adjusting had to be made, in essence giving the episode two endings. It was a great episode but the ending lacked courage or decisiveness is what I'm getting at.
Fundamentally it highlighted the fact that all the "rules" the show has made around time travel, rules which are by necessity extraordinarily thin, are there to be disregarded when the narrative demands they be so ignored. It's not at all new to the show by any means, but is always disappointing.
Other than that, Waters was a tonne of fun and I really enjoyed it. I am always happy to see Lindsay Duncan in a show as well, she's a phenomenal actress and her and the Doctor made for a great dynamic.
They didn't break any of the "rules" that has been made around time travel. They've said that anything can be changed except for fixed points in time. If you try to change a fixed point you get the end of Season 6 when time goes bonkers.
The destruction of the Mars base was a fixed point in time, which is why I said the rules were broken or at least bent to accommodate the Doctor being victorious but time reinforcing itself, sort of.
