Anniversary Prequel ‘The Night of the Doctor’: Details Revealed

The RadioTimes has published new information on the prequel to the anniversary episode, The Night of the Doctor, which will be accessible via the BBC Red Button feature before Saturday the 23rd.

Details are scarce but we’re told it will feature one of the three incarnations of the Time Lord – Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt – set to star in the feature-length special. But which one?

See the full RadioTimes article for the exact dates and times.

EXTENDED trailer for The Day of the Doctor!

Just before Atlantis tonight, BBC One has premiered an extended trailer for the 50th Anniversary Special. Now with more John Hurt, more Doctors squabbling, comparing Screwdrivers, and synchronised sulking. Also, a rather magnificent shot of three Doctors striding determinedly to their doom side by side.

The Day of the Doctor — First Official Trailer!

The BBC have popped out an early release of one of the two trailers announced for this weekend, and, oh, it’s marvellous!

The Moment is coming.

Rose is showing definite signs of the Wolf about her, it looks as though Clara has nicked Captain Jack’s Vortex Manipulator, and I’ve capitalised the Moment because, if you recall The End of Time, the Time Lords were going on about the Doctor running around on Gallifrey in possession of something they called ‘the Moment,’ set to bring an end to the Last Great Time War. That’s how they solved the Paul McGann/Christopher Eccleston dilemma, then — neither of them gets to end it, there was regeneration in between. The one of the Doctor’s lives that he’s trying so hard to forget.

Watch The Day of the Doctor on TV or at Your Local Cinema!

Thanks to Inkie, who kept her eyes peeled, I found out that I can watch the 50th Anniversary Special of Doctor Who, in 3D, at my favourite cinema one town over! In Germany! For a fan deprived, this is a bit magnificent, I can tell you.

The BBC are compiling links to venues and notes about TV networks that have picked up the streaming rights for fans all over the world.

Celebrating 50 Years of Doctor Who: a Special Trailer

“Our future depends on one single moment, of one impossible day. The day I have been running from all my life. The Day of the Doctor.”

Although containing no actual footage from The Day of the Doctor, this trailer features, for the first time, full-colour William Hartnell! That in itself is a treat. The trailer also sets the tone and hints at what we might get to see — the final moments of Gallifrey?

Matt Smith to leave ‘Doctor Who.’

Matt Smith is set to leave Doctor Who: See the BBC’s press release from this evening.

After a lot of speculation, it’s now official: Matt will hand over the helm of the TARDIS to the Twelfth Doctor at the end of the Christmas Special 2013. It’s sad and exciting at the same time—Eleven is my Doctor, and I adore Matt as an actor, so saying goodbye to him is going to be tough. And yet, I’m already looking forward to seeing who they’ll choose as his successor, and who that Doctor is going to be. Onwards!

Oh. my. stars. That was amazing. That more than made up for the ups and downs this series, and, oh, they’re so clever. This episode did the exact opposite of what people feared it said on the tin, of course it did (and I do quite unashamedly hope that a lot of people are eating their words for breakfast this morning). It’s not about the name. It’s about the promise that he made. The promise that’s going to break his hearts.

Matt Smith and David Tennant exclusive:

In an exclusive behind-the scenes clip that the BBC have released as a reward for the fans keeping the finale’s secrets (after Series 7 Part 2 blurays were accidentally sent out too early in America), Matt and David talk about being the Doctor, filming the 50th Anniversary episode, and the magic of it all. This is the most wonderful thing I have ever seen.
