Loved the 'Time' fanvid. So brilliantly moving. Doctor Who really has some truly inspirational dialogue :)

Hey, I made the American Doctor Who Pictures. The originals can be found on my tumblr; smugmode.tumblr.com. The ones here have some sort of 'memecenter' watermark/ they've obviously just been reposted from mine,

I like the American Doctors, the Doctor who last supper and the Dogtor who picture.

As for the pandorica speech, I would't mind hearing Peter Calpaldi doing the speech.

The American Twelfth Doctor wouldn't be Bryan Cranston it would be Bill Murray!

The fourth doctor wasnt the right one for the pandorica speech, and sometimes he, the impresionist didnt sound at all like tom, the fith was the voice of the old peter davison, so it was peter with pandorica speech not the fith doctor sylvester was fantastic but not that good like smith and the tenth didnt sounded at all like david jst the ah at the end of a sentence was good actuallly he souned drunk (well eleven sounds also drunk) elven was of co7rse the best and I dont think anyone else couod do it so good but sylvester was thhe closest to matt!

I was wondering if anyone could help me.  I'm looking at the great picture of the Doctor's Last Supper.  In the second alternative Doctor's version, I can tell who everyone is, except I don't understand why there is a kangaroo/dog like creature in there as well...  Can somebody enlighten me as to if it's a reference to some line somewhere please!

Do yourself a favor and skip to 27:42 of the 11th hour panel!
Whatever you think about Moffat, his response to that question is one of the most amazing quotes about the show ever!

Who's the kangaroo in the Alternate Doctors last supper? I'm afraid that one's too obscure even for me.

Bryan Cranston as the 12th Doctor.

Will he be cooking up something interesting in the Tardis ?

It's disappointing that Sylvester McCoy was the only real actor to do that speech. All the others were lookalikes, which I know for a fact. Gutted.

I shudder to think of Nicholas cage as the doctor.


NO, NOT THE DALEKS. NOT THE DALEKS. OH MY EYES. MY EYYYYYES.


Also Jeff goldblum, Er... I'm the er... er... er... doctor.

I can't believe how badly Tom Baker did that speech. That didn't feel right at all. I could never imagine Peter doing the speech either. His Doctor is not confident enough to make such a speech and that wasn't David Tennant. Sylvester is the only one who comes closest to Matt Smith...and people call him a bad Doctor?

Gustaff

Tony Shalhoub would make a curious Doctor - the Defective Doctor. Like Nick for the role also, just not sure if they picked the right incarnations for the two of them

There's a YouTube video of Paul at a con reading the First Doctor's speech when he leaves Susan behind. It's good. I'd like to hear him read Tom Baker's speech from "The Ark in Space." Any takers out there?

Timhogan

Wow I never heard some of those older doctor's doing the Pandorica speech.  I heard Baker's and McCoy's before but not the others.  I know other Doctors have read other speeches as I've heard Colin Baker read the Rings of Akhaten speech, but I'm curious if there's other's out there and if someone could either point me to what to google or link me!

I'm sorry but that's not David Tennant doing the pandorica speech. A good impression though. And I'm not completely sure about Baker or Davison either

Wow, listening to the Pandorica Speech, it surprises me how badly it fits with other doctors. In fact, the only ones that sound normal doing it are 11 and 7. I guess it just shows how different the doctors are.

It surprises me that they still use the 2005 theme for the show in events and panels like this. But I think it's good, it truly is the best variant of the theme tune.

May Nicholas Cage never be the Doctor. And I love Donald Glover, but not as the Doctor, how about Danny Pudi, though? Can you imagine Gene Wilder? He would be amazing. Sam Rockwell would also be fantastic. You know who should be the Doctor? Alan Tudyk.

Also, slightly off topic, but my friend and I have been saying that Octavia Spencer should be a companion. Who's with me?

Harrison Ford as the War Doctor. I think I'd watch this American version of Doctor Who.

i see people here laughing at the thought of Nicholas Cage playing the Doctor, i see people that would kill to see him as the Doctor and people that would kill for the opposite, so i'm feeling like i'm missing something, is there anything i should know about him?

I'm guessing, but think it's a nod to Monty Python's Last Supper sketch, where Michelangelo's original design was rejected for having 28 disciples, three Jesuses and a kangaroo in it. He suggested calling this one the Penultimate Supper.

@blawesomejeff That answer really meant a lot to Moff. He's quite obviously emotionally moved after he's finished. Just goes to show how important Doctor Who was for him growing up.

"...but heroes tell us who we want to be, and a lot of our heroes depress me.

But, you know, when they made this particular hero they didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things, they didn’t give him a tank or a warship or an X-wing fighter, they gave him a call box, from which you can call for help, and they didn’t give him a super power, or pointy ears, or a heat-ray, they gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that’s an extraordinary thing.

There will never come a time, when we don’t need a hero like the Doctor."

@Gustaff Big speeches weren't all that common in classic Who, and the fourth Doctor would have never given a bombastic speech like this, so it's not all that surprising to me that this doesn't sound right.

@Gustaff You kept me from typing the same thing.  McCoy did a great job.  The speech just doesn't work for the Fourth Doctor.  Whoever it was that said you can just write the same dialogue for any Doctor and it's up to the actor to make it their own is wrong; they really do have different dialogue patterns, and this speech is just as wrong for T. Baker as it would be for W. Hartnell.

Mcoy is a fine sctor. I saw him play The Fool against Ian Mckellan in the RSC Lear. My fourth doctor to see on stage including Matt in Psycho, Peter D in Monty Python's Holy Grail and Tennant in Hamlet. I thought he was pretty good and he got to play the spoons!

I think the real Tom Baker would have done a better job.

@RhonDOH I know, right! The person that made this did such a good job, I could so see him playing a slightly more awkward version of Eight.

Baker definitely an impersonator. Fairly sure the Davison is also fake although I have to say a very good one.

@Oodkind  That's because the others are not them! The Tom, Peter and David ones are impressions...

@youshallnotpass  Basically, Nicholas Cage is believed to be a good actor by many people, but in truth, he is an awful actor who is only capable of portraying insane characters, as he just goes way over the top in every single one of his performances. That's my opinion on him anyway.

twoheartsonemind

There's an episode of the TV show Community where there is a class about whether Nicholas Cage is a good or bad actor. That should tell you all you need to know.

Apparently the theatre decided to not put forward a nominationthis year and will wait until the production goes into the West End later this year so Matt has to wait another year and then on to Broadway. Another Doctor family member, Mark Gatiss was nominated for best supporting sctor in supporting TomHiddleston inCoriolanus. Well done Mark. Hooe he wins.

Now to wait for Matt and Moff to get their BAFTA noms. Hope ,att isn't ineligible like last year due to the programme split.

Ooh just relalised Olivier nominations will be announced later this morning. Matt is guaranteed one for Lead Actor Musical which will be his second nomination.

While not as strong a lock, I also think he's likely to again be nominated as Best Actor for a TV BAFTA on the strength of his performance in Time of the Doctor and he is widely liked and respected in the industry. I am sure there will be a push to recognise him as he leaves the role as he is regarded as the best actor to ever play The Doctor.

An Olivier award and a BAFTA in one year would be amazing for Matt.

Good luck to him!

@The Man of Tin Foil @GustaffI agree. I've heard Tom playing Doc 4 in the audios. That couldn't have been him. Sylvester, David and Matt will always be the three kings when it comes to DW speeches

Arkleseizure

I'd like to think so, but to these ears it sounds no more like John Culhaw's fourth doctor than Tom Bakers.

Matt is by far the best at delivering speeches but Sylvester was good and Eccleston withe right material, like Dalek was pretty good. Davison was too softly spoken, Colin too pompous and Tennant too shouty. Tom has a beautifully modulated voice that I could listen to all day.

The Fourth Doctor isn't that high on my list of favourite Doctors, but I reckon he could pull off the speech pretty well after a few takes. But I agree, however I'd exchange David for Chris.
