When Doctor Met Doctor

Some random fannish Dr. Who musings here. No spoilers or anything, but also of no interest to non-Whovians.

I was just thinking, first of all, that it’d be really nice to eventually see a multi-Doctor story in the current incarnation of the show. There were several done back during the old series; I’d love to see Smith, Tennant, and Eccleston together, no matter how unlikely it may be.

But I think it would be even more interesting if we were to eventually get a multi-Doctor story using a Doctor who hadn’t appeared yet.

It would require a few very specific set of criteria to make happen. It would have to happen late in Smith’s run, and he’d have to have given the producers some pretty advance notice of when he was planning to leave the part. And they’d have to cast the next Doctor earlier than normal. But I think it’d be really cool to have the first introduction of a new Doctor occur during a previous Doctor’s run (and not at the very end of it, either).

But even if that’s asking too much, I don’t think some form of multi-Doctor special would be.

(And I also want us to start seeing more of the TARDIS, damn it! The old series showed us multiple rooms of it; the current series only occasionally mentions them.)
