Doctor Who Theory: David Tennant The Toymaker Creation

David Tennant is set to return in Doctor Who’s 60th-anniversary events, however he might be playing a creation of the Toymaker rather than the Doctor himself. Next year will certainly be an exciting one for Doctor Who, with Russell T Davies returning as showrunner– as well as unexpectedly bringing David Tennant as well as Catherine Tate back with him. The BBC formally introduced their return in May, ahead of public recording where established pictures would certainly have validated it anyhow.

Advertising for the Doctor Who 60th anniversary special( s) will not start until 2023, well after this year’s Centenary Special in which the Thirteenth Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, will certainly bail out. For now, the BBC is keeping the 60th-anniversary announcements to a minimum, concentrating mostly on interesting spreading decisions, consisting of Neil Patrick Harris’s mysterious function as a major bad guy. Still, the absence of information is paradoxically bring about ever-more-intense conjecture within the fanbase. Davies has actually addressed it directly in a recent unique interview with Doctor Who Magazine; he’s constantly loved the publication as well as seems excited to collaborate with it as much as feasible moving forward.

Davies teased how Tennant as well as Tate can return, providing a variety of possibilities. He recommended this could be a kind of “Missing Adventure,” a previously-unseen excursion set before Tate’s companion, Donna Noble, left the Tenth Doctor’s side. Probably it might be a multiversal adventure, and also that “this is a Doctor and Donna from Universe 557, all set to collide with our very own.” But his 3rd option was most exceptional: “possibly, just possibly, this return is so difficult that it’s really an elaborate illusion produced by an old opponent of the Doctor’s.” Surprisingly, this has currently come to be the most likely opportunity.

Neil Patrick Harris Appears To Be Playing The Toymaker

There have been solid hints Neil Patrick Harris is playing a traditional villain that hasn’t been seen because William Hartnell’s time as the First Doctor. The Toymaker is a powerful Doctor Who adversary, last seen in the 1966 story “The Celestial Toymaker.” A practically godlike being, the Toymaker was the absolute ruler of an entire dimension, one beside our very own. He enjoyed to mobilize opponents right into his dimension to play fatal games, and also if they lost they became his pawns for the future. Evidently, he had come across the Doctor when before, as well as his encounter the First Doctor was something of a rematch. The first marketing photo of Harris’s personality resulted in supposition he was playing the Toymaker, and this was supported by established images from recording in Bristol. The BBC dressed the outside of one accumulating as an old-fashioned toyshop, as well as one Whovian– Connor Mountford– disclosed props celebrating him as “Toymaker of the Year.” It currently seems a winner.

The Toymaker Has A History Of Rewriting Reality – And Creating False Doctors

The current Doctor Who age has confirmed debatable and also dissentious, in part because of complicated retcons. Davies seems to be checking out the Timeless Child retcon as an opportunity to broaden the show’s tradition, drawing in concepts from various other tools; established photos have actually revealed unusual creatures from the comics, significantly the mobster Beep the Meep and also a race referred to as Wrarths which sought him. This normally means he could be making use of other mediums for motivation in a similar way– as well as it’s intriguing to keep in mind one timeless Doctor Who cartoon saw the Toymaker create a phony Doctor.

It was in fact the first Eighth Doctor journey released in the publication after the 1996 Doctor Who Television film starring Paul McGann, and it saw the Doctor show up at the town of Stockbridge. The Toymaker was excited to beat the Doctor at last and in fact developed a mirror-image Doctor as his rival– made to be the Doctor’s equivalent in every method.

The Toymaker’s Real Target Could Be Donna Noble

All this increases the appealing opportunity that the Toymaker’s real target is, actually, Donna Noble. The Toymaker’s grudge against the Doctor would naturally make his friends of actual passion, as well as actually Donna is much more at risk than any other former buddy. The Doctor was required to clean Donna’s memories of their time together after she absorbed a replicate of his very own consciousness due to the fact that her human mind can not cope with the worry of this expertise. The Toymaker would possess the power to get around this, nevertheless, and he can even receive Donna’s mind to maintain her from burning up as he recovered her memories.

The Toymaker may not bring back Donna’s memories completely, simply due to the fact that he would certainly consider it amusing to play about with Donna’s perceptions. That would certainly clarify why David Tennant’s Doctor is wearing a costume that looks ever-so-slightly incorrect; the Toymaker could be providing Donna ideas to pick up on as her mind recovers, mistakes that need to make her recognize something is badly wrong. To the Toymaker, it would all become part of the game.

What Would This Theory Mean For Doctor Who Going Forward?

Davies has actually cast Yasmin Finney as a personality named Rose, to be introduced in Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary however thought to be Ncuti Gatwa’s companion when he appears as the next Doctor. There are rumors Rose remains in truth Donna’s little girl– sustained by people that saw the recording and that assert to have actually listened to some discussion in which Rose called Donna “Mum.” If this is the case, after that the Doctor Who 60th anniversary special could be Rose’s initial tale– the essential backstory in which she first finds out of the Doctor, involving recognize the planetary stakes of her own adventures.

This would certainly be a wise strategy, making certain Rose ended up being a solid perspective character through whom the genuine Doctor could be comprehended when she finally crosses courses with him. It would also make the Doctor Who 60th anniversary unique unlike any tale told before in the show’s background– one in which Tennant returns, not as part of a multi-Doctor tale or a “Missing Adventure,” yet rather as a pawn of the Toymaker.
