This is my theory about what’s going to happen in Doctor Who during the Fiftieth anniversary special and the Christmas special. If you don’t want to read my ideas, or want to hear my take on a rumor going around, please don’t read any farther.
All right. You’re reading this, so I’ll continue.
As is common knowledge, David Tennant and Billie Piper are returning for the Fiftieth anniversary special. I’m looking forward to them coming back, even for a single episode. I’m taking it for granted that you already know that Matt Smith is leaving the show after the Christmas special. The interesting thing is a lot of people are calling for David Tennant to return as the Twelfth Doctor. The other major rumor is that the next Doctor will be a woman.
While I’m not entirely sure how well it would work turning the Doctor into a woman, I’ve been trying to think of what kind of actor or actress is needed for the part. I never really cared for Matt Smith, he wasn’t bad, but I don’t think that the writers knew how to treat him.
I’ve been trying to think how Steven Moffat would think, it’s not easy, but I’ve finally managed to see how he might trick everyone, he always seems to want to create mystery around the show, which is why I believe he’s allowed the rumors about the Doctor regenerating into a female Time Lord to float around so long.
I think that Steven Moffat knew who he was going to choose as the twelfth Doctor even before Matt Smith decided to leave. I think that he is going with an actress who has already been in Doctor Who. I think that the next Doctor is going to be the only woman that could possibly pull it off.
Any ideas? I’ll give you a few clues:
- She has played key parts in the series since it returned in 2005.
- She’s been rumored to make returns in other episodes.
- She saved the Doctor a few times.
- She’s loved by some fans and hated by other.
That’s right, I think that Billie Piper will be the next doctor. It makes sense, she’s been with the rebooted Doctor Who since it began, she’s looked into the heart of the TARDIS, she traveled between universes to see the Doctor again.
All they would have to do is have the Doctor regenerate inside the TARDIS, perhaps touching something of Rose’s. The TARDIS could lend a hand as well, just look at the end of the first season to see how the TARDIS always liked Rose anyway.
Plus there’s the bonus factor that sometime, if they need a twist in an episode, Rose could return and meet the twelfth Doctor, Billie Piper would have to play two parts, but that’s been done before.
What do you think? Have I seen through Steven Moffat’s mystery? Or am I just spouting foolish ideas?
