We have been really bad at replying to people lately. Sorry if we seem like we’re ignoring anyone, that isn’t the case, just so you know.
No that’s not a problem, we might have talked about it once, can’t really remember.
We don’t really have any problems with another actor playing him as such, and we think Richard did an alright job and we’d have been sad if the First Doctor was the only one not represented in the Five Doctors, but we’re not really fond of the way he was written in it, very different from how he was most of the time. People always seem to remove the humourous side to the First Doctor and that’s what we really missed from the performance. So we were glad he was included but if they could do the serial again we wish they could improve on his portrayal a bit. There was the odd nice interaction but if your first intro to the First Doctor was this serial, it doesn’t really give a great image of what made him so great. Or maybe we’re just very sensitive to it because we love him so much lol. :)
We always welcome new ideas! We don’t mind writing other characters, depending on if we know them well enough to do them justice. But yes, feel free to send us ideas and we can always give it a go! :)
