Note: The Doctor Who Answers Wiki is aware of the leak of the scripts for the first few episode of Series 8 of Doctor Who. Do not ask questions about the scripts, and do not post any information from them anywhere on this website. Any attempts to upload the scripts, or in any way spoil these upcoming episodes, will result in your IP/Account being permanently banned from Doctor Who Answers. Thank you.

Note 2: This is also true for episodes which have officially aired on the World Tour. Until they've been released in a form available to the general public (in other words, 23rd August for "Deep Breath"), episodes are covered under DWA:FUTURE and may not be asked about, and information from those episodes are considered spoilers and will be met with deletion.

He isn't because he isn't, so he isn't.

your answer to my question makes no sense

It does make sense if you match the answer to the question. To expand: Cushing isn't counted as an official Doctor because he isn't one, so Matt Smith isn't the 12th Doctor.

The BBC onlu counts Doctors who played the part in a BBC Television Episode, and were identified as "the Doctor" onscreen in a tv episode. Thus, Peter Cushing, and any other Doctor who only appears in non-tv media doesn't count.

No Doctor ever regenerated into the Peter Cushing Doctor, and the Peter Cushing Doctor never regenerated into another Doctor, so it just doesn't work. I've never seen the movies, but my understanding is that Cushing played a human scientist named Doctor Who, who invented a machine called the Tardis, and then went to basically the same stories as a couple of First Doctor episodes. It just isn't possible to fit that with the TV version.Icecreamdif (talk) 15:00, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

Peter Cushing's spacetime machinewas called "Tardis", not "the TARDIS". Susan and Barbara were his granddaughters. And yes, it was basically the first two Dalek stories, dumbed down.

  • In the late 1960s, Cushing recorded a pilot episode for a Doctor Who radio series that was never picked up. Had it been produced, he would have apparently been playing a TV-consistent Doctor, rather than the Dr. Who character of the movies. That would have called into question where Smith and the other Doctors fall.
