'Doctor Who''s epic 50th anniversary celebration "The Day of the Doctor" seems to get bigger by the day, even as its plot has been kept tightly under wraps. As we approach the global November 23 premiere however, the BBC has released a spoilery new synopsis for the 75-minute event, as well as details of not one, but two all-new minisodes leading up to it!
Even after the most recent 'Doctor Who' 50th anniversary special teaser for "The Day of the Doctor," longtime fans of the series not present for the Comic-Con 2013 panel still anxiously await footage from the actual event. Well, it seems November 15 will see the premiere of at least one bit of new footage, but will it be an actual trailer, so close to the November 23 premiere?
It's here! Well, sort of. 'Doctor Who' fans have been waiting since Comic-Con 2013 to see the 50th anniversary trailer for the November 23 extravaganza "The Day of the Doctor," and the BBC has finally granted a fresh look at the proceedings. It's not quite the footage we saw from San Diego, but what 'Doctor Who' fan could resist seeing all the past Time Lords return for "The Day of the Doctor"?
The 50th anniversary special of 'Doctor Who' is fast approaching, and though "The Day of the Doctor" will mark one step closer to Matt Smith's departure from the series at the end of 2013, we can't wait to see Doctors old and new together for the first time. In order to get the timey-wimey countdown rolling, the BBC has released the first photos from the 75-minute special, putting Matt Smith and David Tennant's Doctors together at last!
Earlier today we caught our first real details of the 'Doctor Who' 50th anniversary special "The Day of the Doctor" from an official running time and potential tease of past Doctors to come, but now it's time for a first look! The official one-sheet poster for the landmark 'Doctor Who' event uniting Matt Smith with David Tennant and John Hurt has arrived, so take a look at the good Doctors together!
Now that 'Doctor Who' has selected Peter Capaldi to take over for Matt Smith in late 2013, fan focus shifts back to the impending 50th anniversary special extravaganza, uniting Smith's 11th Doctor with David Tennant's 10th and John Hurt's mysterious incarnation. The BBC has now begun preparing fans for the big reunion by revealing both the episode's title and extended length, while a mysterious protest of past 'Doctor Who' stars might point the way to bigger surprises in store.
As any 'Doctor Who' fan following the series well knows by now, the 2013 Christmas special will see fan-beloved Matt Smith departing the role in favor of 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi but how long will Who-vians have to wait until the proper season 8 premiere? Pull up a comfy spot in the TARDIS, it may be awhile...
The moment 'Doctor Who' fans learned that Matt Smith would leave behind the iconic role at the end of 2013, the race began to see who would pick up the Sonic Screwdriver. That race finally came to a finish today, as actor Peter Capaldi was announced as the Twelfth Doctor! Capaldi had been considered a lock for the past few weeks, but what do we think about the new announcement?
Ever since Matt Smith announced his retirement from 'Doctor Who' at the end of the year, fans of the longrunning BBC sci-fi series have patiently awaited news of his replacement, especially given swirling rumors about unconventional casting choices. That day may have finally come, as reports emerge that the 12th 'Doctor Who' will be announced with a live special this coming weekend!
For as exciting as 'Doctor Who''s recent Comic-Con 2013 panel proved, with its exclusive release of the upcoming 50th anniversary trailer, we couldn't help but feel a bit let down by the lack of any news on Matt Smith's inevitable replacement. And while casting for the twelfth Doctor remains ongoing, how would you like to read the audition scripts each potential Doctor reads in casting?
