Fans Petition For Tennant To Raise The Torch

It might have been one of the most cringe-worthy moments of Nu-Who but this hasn’t stopped fans from petitioning for it to become a reality.

Over 5000 people have signed on the dotted line to see David Tennant carry the 2012 Olympic torch dressed as the Tenth Doctor- recreating the finale of series two episode Fear Her.

The Facebook page certainly has a long time to generate support and is currently looking for new ways to get more fans interested (hmm…if only there was a website which could link to it? Oh well)

As landmark numbers are hit the site is rewarding signators with fan made videos celebrating all things Who such as:  Tenth Doctor: The Musical, Series 1-5 Ultimate Trailer, a Series One trailer, a Sherlock/Doctor Who mash up and a fan made trailer of the 2010 Christmas Special.

Fear Her has the dubious distinction of being the lowest ranking episode of the new run in Doctor Who Magazine’s The Mighty 200 – reaching 192nd place.

To relive the moment and decide whether you want to see it a reality head over to the iPlayer before it disappears this Friday.

You can sign the petition right here.
