Russell T Davies: 'I won't be involved in Doctor Who 50th anniversary'

"I think I'd be like the ghost at the feast," he said. "What would I do - turn up and make the tea?"

I wonder if they would consider a remake of "Shada" with Tom Baker as Professor Chronotis.

I *LIKE* that suggestion! Bit of a twist.

Whatever they do, I hope it's fitting for remembering Dr Who across the five decades. Something that captures the essence of the series and the unique characteristics of each individual Doctor.

I would love to see them rewrite it so that Chronotis is really the Fourth Doctor in hiding or on vacation. They could replace the human associates with Eleven and the companion and make room for Romana and K-9.

I just hope that he lives long enough for it to be a possibility. This has been a bad year for anyone who set foot in Baker's Tardis.

In Terrance Dicks novelisation of "Face of Evil" he hypothesised that during the sequence of Baker's 1st story "Robot" that in the fleeting seconds where the 4th Doctor started to leave in the Tardis, witnessed by Sarah and The Brigadeer, and halted his departure Dicks speculated that he really did leave, which is how he became involved in the matter with the schizophrenic computer Xoannon.

I'd like something workable along those lines with a modern story, as long as it's fairly believable. There's no explanation in Shada itself for how Professor Chronotis came back from the dead (in his nightgown) when Clare Keightley "crossed the time lines" or something).

(At least Lalla Ward is still alive)
