The Time of the Doctor - Who is Returning To Who?

The Daily Star are reporting that someone from Doctor Who's past will return in The Time of the Doctor.

WARNING: This may spoil a surprise if you continue reading!

The Daily Star are claiming that a "huge favourite from the past" will return "in a spine-tingling moment just before he regenerates".

See the article here:
BBC bosses are staying tight-lipped about the identity of the returning legend.
But since the sci-fi show is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, fan speculation will run wild about the mystery figure.
Millions of viewers will be tuning in to the Christmas Day episode, called The Time Of The Doctor.
They will see the Time Lord (Matt Smith, 31) face a deadly battle with his old foes The Daleks, Cybermen and Weeping Angels.
And it doesn’t end well. At the close of the show, The Doc will reveal his time is up and he is dying.
However, in a spine-tingling moment just before he regenerates, the spectre of a huge favourite from the past appears in the Tardis.
Who says: “Times change and so must I but I will always remember when The Doctor was me.” And the spook tells him: “Good night.”
Fans will then see him transfrom into a new Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, 55.
Companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman, 27) looks on in shock as the Time Lord gets a new face and a new personality. Show boss Steven Moffat 52, said: "It was very emotional saying goodbye to Matt.
"It's the end of an era. But we move on. We have just done a read-through of the first episode or Peter and he is amazing."

You're both wrong. Whoever it is, they're quoted as saying "I will always remember when the Doctor was me," implying that whoever it is, they're a past Doctor.

Ah no the Doc says it and the guest "spook" answers "good night." So it's Santa Claus.

So, when turning into Davison (?), there was also a spook ?
Maybe that's the one !.

It's Eccleston.

Could also be Claire Bloom -- the mystery Time Lord talking to Wilf in The End of Time

I'd love for it to be Romana , projecting a message from Gallifrey, but my money is on little Amelia.

You mean "The Watcher"?

Robert Cyberman said...

That sounds like the way 4 spoke

Jan Bos said...

Yeah, I think so.

Sammy Hp said...

That's exactly what I though

The War Doctor... thanking Eleven for the brief period he got to be THE Doctor.

Perhaps the Curator from the future, wishing a good night to one of his past lives, and assuring him and us that he will always be remembered? After all, he is the Curator.
