‘Doctor Who’ Christmas special preview!

Ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod! Just five and a half more weeks to wait for new Doctor Who. Here’s a sneak peek:

Reader Weimlady has offered her idea about what she thinks is going on:

I want to go on record here and now with my guess as to what’s happening in the show. The other Doctor and his assistant Rosita are LARPers (Live Action Role Players, for any non-geek who happens to wander in here by mistake) from the future–think Jeff Daniels’ wonderful time travel movie Grand Tour-Disaster in Time, but the visitors from the future are role players, not just tourists. They’re role-playing the Doctor and Rose–just got Rose’s name a bit off–because they are “the stuff of legend” (see Satan Pit). The Cybershades are the creation of the guys running the game–again, just a bit off the “legend.” They must have gotten the Doctor’s story via Mr. Copper (VotD).

Real Cybermen get wind of the faux Cybershades and come to see what’s going on. The real Doctor (the one and only Ten) then has to save the day, as is his wont.

Come back and tell me how right I was (if I was!) after it airs! I will be insufferably smug about if it so. :-)

I like that idea, but I bet it’s all going to be so much stranger than we can imagine. I do agree that it’s unlikely that David Morrissey’s “Doctor” is the real Doctor: there’s the Blinovitch Limitation Effect to worry about, for one…
