The Day of the Doctor

At last, the BBC have released the first (and second) official trailer for The Day of the Doctor, the 50th anniversary movie-length episode of Doctor Who. Set to be released around the world on 23 November, simulcast on television and selected cinema screens, it will be the 799th episode of the long-running British sci-fi drama since its debut on the same day in 1963.

Written by show-runner Steven Moffat,  and directed by Nick Hurran, the show will feature the historic meeting of the Tenth (David Tennant) and Eleventh (Matt Smith) Doctors, along with a mysterious “forgotten” incarnation played by John Hurt. The episode will also star Jenna Coleman, Billie Piper, Jemma Redgrave, Joanna Page and Ingrid Oliver.

Enough prattle. You’re looking for the Doctor? You’ve certainly come to the right place.
