I think it's time we had material for a proper discussion  
Soooo....It's been rumored (or perhaps it's actually been confirmed?) the Donna will be featured in the final specials this year. I have to say that I'm slightly worried. I hated what happened to Donna in Journey's End, but if she comes back and doesn't totally regain her memory, or if she dies, or if her character remains perpetually in "Turn Left"mode, or if she just plain doesn't get the screen time and enough stuff to say and do, I might be more upset than if she didn't show up at all.

Thoughts?

Considering there is actual picture proof of Catherine filming Doctor Who you can consider it confirmed ;)

SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It's been confirmed, btw. She's in the trailer and everything. Dunno what's going to happen but I know Wilf's the companion so it could be as simple as "Well, Wilf, thanks for coming along, and now that you're home take good care of yourself and- Oh, crap, it's Donna" or she could play a huge role in the episode. I'll probably be unhappy no matter what happens (because we know how RTD loves his deus ex machinas, after all) but I think she might just be there to remind the Doctor how much his life sucks before he regenerates, because RTD's that evil. Dunno, but I'm going to say she can't get her memories back because she would want to come with him again and we know that can't happen. *shrugs* Less than two months until we find out for sure!

I think we may be heavily into might-have-beens and alternative timelines by then. So all bets are off, probably.

i hate to say this but she probably isnt going to get her memories back :'( but i hope she plays a big role in the final episodes..if Rose gets more of a plot I WILL FLIP THE HELL OUT! and if RTD screws her over again, i will boycott the bloody show..i dont care how great Moffat's era will be, i will not watch if Donna's ending sucks..like even Sarah Jane got screwed over, but in the end her life became better even though it took a while (about 20 years is a long time) but i hope Donna gets some kind of a happy ending, but the thought of her getting married again kills me :P [/end rant]

Yeah, I'm with you on the anxiety. I don't trust RTD in the slightest. What I dread the most is that whatever disastrous/half-witted/even-just mediocre deus ex machina he throws at the problem of Donna's memories, it won't be even half as awesome as all the phenomenal fixit fics out there... but it will effectively end people's need to write them! I worry that the final special will close so many doors in that way. In that way we've been lucky to have had soo much time between the end of season 4 and now

I fear for most of the cast that's been dumped in because RTD wants a last hurrah on the show... I'm expecting one huge retcon...
