In my head it took me a while to figure out who Mr. Hartnell was.

Then I asked myself, "Mr. Who?"

Then I figured it out.

It's actually the first time Susan has been directly mentioned in the New series. I wonder if it means she may be returning for the 50th anniversary special.
#130 to #48 - TehFunnyMan (04/11/2013) [-]
Actually, Carol Ann Ford just did an interview where she directly blamed Doctor Who for "Ruining her career".   
Sounds to me she might not be all too keen on returning.

She was happy to come back for the 20th anniversary, and indeed for many audio stories.
And of course the real problem with he time on the show is that she was written as a typical teenage girl from the time, whereas she wanted to play it far more alien (which you can see in the original version of An Unearthly Child)

I'm pretty sure she's got over the fact that this show killed her career almost 50 years ago.

Whether they'd ask her however, is a different story.
User avatar #140 to #130 - theunlimited (04/11/2013) [-]
I think she did that to herself though, first season of Hartnell I've seen... She overacted every in every scene and it was just terrible or downright ridiculous at times. Unless say if the producers/director egged her on and urged her to overact, then yeah totally their fault.

i didnt see the whole things but i thought she was the woman that the 10th doctor sees in that film for Tennants last role. then again like i said didnt see the whole thing and cant remember it very well.
User avatar #129 to #53 - theunlimited (04/11/2013) [-]
That's an interesting thought but if I recall correctly, I remember reading somewhere that Susan settled down and married a human. What initially struck me and most people I have discussed this with is that the woman from 'The End of TIme' might be the Doctor's mother or some other familial relation. She just gave off that vibe to me at least.
#136 to #129 - restfullwicked (04/11/2013) [-]
well as i said. yes its true that she fell in love with a human and the doctor left in what has become known as the first goodbye it is possible that she found another way home. checking IMDB, the episode wasn't listed but she is listed as doing something in 1993 as susan so perhaps you are right.

Guys, shut the 			****		 up.    
There's no such thing as the "Best Doctor", okay?    
It is an opinion.    
Ergo, it's "Favorite Doctor".    
So when you see someone saying Tennant is the best Doctor, and feel the need to tell them how wrong they are, just realize that they have no concept of what an opinion is, and move on.

I don't like Matt Smith as a Doctor, Tennant was much better. THAT'S A ******* OPINION FUNNYJUNK, so don't be asshats and tell me I'm wrong/
User avatar #65 to #32 - thesilence (04/11/2013) [-]
People are going to tell you you're wrong if you don't justify it. Just say why you don't like Smith and why you do like Tennant - there are a lot of fangirls out there that just mindlessly hate Smith just for replacing Tennant, so people are gonna assume that's your reason too.
User avatar #146 to #65 - explore (04/12/2013) [-]
Because I feel Smith is too young to assume the role as Doctor, he didn't feel as threatening in certain situations where he should have been and he just didn't feel like the right person to play the Doctor.
User avatar #79 to #32 - yologdog (04/11/2013) [-]
I agree. I love smith but I honestly feel like it wasn't tennants time to go yet. He could have stayed for 1-2 more seasons and I would still have liked it.

3 years might have been a bit much though, there's only so much you can do with one doctor.

I'm still on season 6, a bit after The Impossible Astronaut, where the 200 year older version of the Doctor "dies"

Do later episodes disprove this or is Matt Smith the final doctor?

My guess is that it was River that shot him, I remember her mentioning that the reason she was sent to the prison was because she shot "the greatest man she'd ever known" or something along those lines

The Doctor can only regenerate 12 times

So the 13th Doctor will be the last Doctor (currently on 11th)

Weeelllllll..................13 is canon at the moment, BUT since it's one hell of a popular show I am willing to bet money that Moffat will write a fantastic way to skim over that fact. Or one of doctors many clones/hands/daughter etc will be the new doctor and take over his mantle.
User avatar #43 to #39 - yetaxaa (04/11/2013) [-]
I doubt Moffat will still be in charge by the time we get to the 13th Doctor
But I have no doubt that the production team will find some way around
Robert Holmes didn't realise that we'd ever come this far when he invented the 12 regenerations rule back in 1976
#49 to #43 - anon (04/11/2013) [-]
Yeah, I don't remember where I read it, but Moffat said they've pretty much just abandoned that rule. The Doctor lives forever.

In the episode "The Deadly Assassin" (part of original Who, 4th Doctor) Castellan Spandrell states a Time Lord can only "go through 12 regeneration cycles" and since the original Doctor (William Hartnell) was his original for, there will only be 13 Doctors

You obviously haven't seen much Doctor Who then, 4 is generally agreed to be the best followed by whatever Doctor happened to be "your" series growing up (In my case that will be 7, Sylvester was an awesome Doctor). 9 is still highly reguarded, but each is different and even the two most disliked doctors (6 and 8) have redeemed themselves in the audioplays.

Gotta love 4... Sylvester was my Doctor as a kid so he'll always have a special place, and Ace! Love Ace!... but Tennant was awesome, best of the new bunch I think
User avatar #125 to #85 - lacypushupbra (04/11/2013) [-]
I started with the 9th and for a time I despised the 10th. Mainly because I treated the show as a soap opera for some weird ass reason and screamed out "Why?" after he had regenerated.

I loved the Christopher Eccleston (9th doctor) and the David Tennant (10th doctor) series, but this Matt Smith guy I think is a faggot and ruined the series. That and the series now is too confusing and running dry.

I can feel the red thumbs now.

Have you watched any Hartnell episodes? I find him better than Tennant and Eccelston, and I don't mind Smith, but I can understand why someone wouldn't like him.
User avatar #100 to #95 - mickeymaufive (04/11/2013) [-]
Nah I didn't really give any thought to the older episodes because I've been told that the episodes are a mixed bag of good and pure **** .

I don't like Matt Smith because he has made the Doctor out to be some douche hipster.
User avatar #104 to #100 - markertemp (04/11/2013) [-]
Like I said, I can tolerate him. I have only seen episodes from 1, 9, 10, and 11, and I tend to like Hartnell the best out of them, with Tennant at a close second, then Eccelston.
#106 to #104 - mickeymaufive (04/11/2013) [-]
Sweet, I'll give Hartnell a shot then.
User avatar #108 to #106 - markertemp (04/11/2013) [-]
Hartnell is extremely cynical, even more so than his 21st century successors, which is why I find him very funny. Also, his companions early on are great. Ian Chesterton is a great secondary character.
User avatar #124 to #108 - theunlimited (04/11/2013) [-]
Aww yeah, Chesterton is a boss... Hartnell is worth watching just to see some of the ridiculous over reactions from Barbara and Susan.
User avatar #144 to #124 - yetaxaa (04/11/2013) [-]
Barbara? overreactions? she's pretty much the best written character in the history of the show.
User avatar #131 to #124 - markertemp (04/11/2013) [-]
I can imagine this as a possible conversation between the First Doctor and Chesterton:
[The following scene take place in a hypothetical situation in which the TARDIS malfunctioned and ended up on top of a very tall building during travel]:
Ian: Doctor, how did e end up on top of the Empire State Building? How'd we even get into America on the first place?
Doctor: I have no idea, Chesterton, perhaps you would be willing to go outside and investigate.
Ian: Good idea, Doctor. I think I'll go do tha- Wait a minute, you were trying to get me to plummet to my death, weren't you?
Doctor: Well, it was worth a shot.

I think it's high time for Susan to make a random reappearance, maybe looking completely different, and being on her 3rd or 4th incarnation, herself. Possibly looking older than the 11th doctor.

William Hartnell actually disliked playing the role of the Doctor. Because he was mostly a film actor he considered himself above it all.
User avatar #6 to #3 - yetaxaa (04/10/2013) [-]
that is so very very very wrong
back in the beginning, when most of the BBC were hating on this ridiculous idea of the show, William Hartnell was saying how it would last at least 5 years and maybe more. He was incredibly enthusiastic about the show and the character.
After being typecast as a tough guy sergeant type, he lept upon the chance to play an older man, and loved being the hero to so many childrena round the country.
it was hard work surely and he could be had to work wiith but he had so much pressure on him (especially considering they worked 11 months a year) being the leading man, and his as of left undiscovered illnes

He was incredibly proud of being the Doctor and only left because he was so ill that he really couldn't continue. Hell when the 10th anniversary he agreed to come back before his wife had to ring in and say that he would really be too ill to play a significany part

If he didn't love it like he did, it neve would have gotten as far as it idid.

User avatar #9 to #8 - yetaxaa (04/10/2013) [-]
well yeah it is a common misconception simply because of how difficult he could be to work with (in his final year especially, he got rather irritated with directors telling him how to play the part)
mind you, Tom Baker was the same after a few years.
User avatar #67 to #9 - thesilence (04/11/2013) [-]
It must be quite a tiring role, and they've done it for so long that they just want to do it their way. Can't blame them. I remember reading about Tom Baker being against having Leela (a warrior) as a companion since the Doctor is against murdering people - shows that he cared a lot about his role.

The problem with "whoovians" is that they go out of their way to post stuff related to dr who. Even when its not related to the content. And then you always have that one guy that goes "dr who threat?" and then "whoovians" spam the comment section with pointless dr who gifs.
And that happens everyday on every post here.
User avatar #64 to #40 - thesilence (04/11/2013) [-]
To be honest I kind of agree. I've been a huge Doctor Who fan all my life but it's turned into a Tumblr bandwagon thing. It must be really annoying for non-Whovians.
