old DOCTOR WHO specials & series5 *SPOILERS* PLEASE CLOSE 1000 post reached

Well looks like the last one got closed due to off topic stuff & arguing, so thats try & keep on track for this one.

Here is a link to the old thread:
1st Doctor Who Series 4 Info Thread-*SPOILERS*

Anyway, OG has gone into absolute overdrive today with a number of people saying they saw Catharine Tate as Donna filming a scene with a certain Billie Piper last night.

The scene involved them arguing with Billie/Rose ending it by saying something like "what he's dead!".

This sort of ties in with the rumors that have been going round about this years "Doctor light episode", being about the Doctors companions, how much he changed there lives & what there life is like without him.

Some OG members are saying this is all ball, others seam to running off to the loo at the thought of it, while this one waits for a bit more info........

They are filming the Doctor light one know, so it would appear to tie in with that, however this episode could be a set up for the finale.

EDIT - in fact thats what the Mirror is reporting:
Quote:
Billie reunited with Dr
EXCLUSIVE Billie returns as TV Doc's helper
Doctor Who will have three glamorous assistants in the next series - after Billie Piper agreed to a surprise comeback.
BBC chiefs are delighted that Billie, 25, is to star in at least three episodes to round off the next run, which starts in March.
The Time Lord, played by David Tennant, starts with Donna (Catherine Tate) as his helper, is then joined by Martha (Freema Agyeman) and then reunites with Billie's character Rose for the finale. A source said: "With Donna, Martha and Rose competing to assist him, Dr Who is going to be spoilt for choice."
Since quitting, Billie has often admitted she misses the show which turned her into a major TV star. The actress told The Mirror: "Doctor Who is a big part of my life. I've missed it since I left and I love David Tennant."
She was persuaded to return by her family. Billie added: "My mum is the biggest Doctor Who fan ever. I feel bad about not being in this year's Christmas special with Kylie Minogue."
As Rose, Billie proved a huge hit, winning awards two years running.
Next year's 13-part series will end with an explosive plot, before taking a break for just a few specials in 2009. The series returns in 2010.
Billie will star as Sally Lockhart in the BBC1 adaptation of Philip Pullman's Shadow in the North this Christmas.

Funny you should say that as a BBC Xmas Press release today has this pic:


They look a bit Axon'ish to me.

So the rumours are right with us being 'treated' to Tate, Martha, Rose, Mickey, Jackie and Pete Tyler could be right.

I try to remain positive but this seems like hell to me.

Rumour is that they'll only all be together in the episode without Tennant. Martha is only in it for 3 episodes, and so is Rose, so I imagine it'll be:

Tate then
Tate and Martha then
Tate and Piper.

BBC have said Rose/Billie will be in 3 episodes (the 'Doctor light' one & then the final 2?), & that Martha will be in 5 episodes (the two part Sontarans one that has been filmed & 3 others).

It is possible that Martha's final 3 episodes will be the same one's as Rose.
This will fit in with the rumour of the 'Doctor light' one being about companions, & the final having all 3 of them?

Also to add to the mix is that John Barrowman has said he will be back as Capt Jack at some point in Series 4.

Five.

To those who think this is a bad idea that negates the end of 'Doomsday', it's hardly going to be an Aliens/Alien 3-style debacle is it?

And no one batted an eyelid when Susan made her (rubbish) reappearance in 'The Five Doctors', after a very touching goodbye -- and she was the Doctor's granddaughter FFS!

To me, it means one thing above all else: Billie Piper, a terrific actress and a total babe who made a huge contribution to the present show's success, is coming back. Wonderful.

Surely it would only make sense to bring Piper back if this was to be Tennant's swan-song? Which would cast serious doubt on the "4 specials in 2009 and a new series for 2010" stories we've heard(would the BBC launch a new Doctor in a series of one-off specials?).

Could this be it for the foreseeable future?

3 specials, not 4.

Will be nice to see Rose back although it does seem a bit soon after being told that they could never meet again - and does it mean the whole annoying family returning?

I also have this slight fear of dread that RTD will try to 'top' his season finale's by chucking the Doctor, Martha, Rose, that annoying Tate bint, all their respective families, 2 Million daleks, 11 Billion toclafane, 1000 Cybermen, The Master, Captain Jack, Sarah-Jane, K-9, Santa Claus, God, The Devil, The Master, Bonnie Langford all in the mix!

He's a good writer when the mood takes him but the word 'restraint' is not in his dictionary.

which is what I was refrrring to in post #2 in this thread. Maybe not the toclafane this time round but the rumour was about cramming as much/many in as possible to go out with a bang

Looks like the "Doctor Light" will be number 11, so this could be part of a 3 part final as last year?




Here's a picture of Tate (Donna) from the filming:




Looks like she could be wearing Jack's coat & his vortex manipulator. Maybe she has jumped across into Roses world?
The coat also looks wired up - a bomb? a timey-wimey device?

The amount of filming Tate is doing in the Doctor Light episode would suggest there could also be a Donna Light episode (which will please some of you), as this episode is being being double banked (2 filmed at the same time) with another one.
