Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Trailer Online
Save the day...

19 October 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: BBC

It’s not surprising to see the BBC keeping the hoopla heavy for Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary celebration, given how successful it has been around the world, as well as at home. The channel used new drama Atlantis as the launchpad for a trailer focusing on the character’s history and teasing what’s to come with the November 23 episode. Take a look and see what classic/Nu-Who elements you can spot. 

The special – which will be broadcast simultaneously in several countries to try to stamp out downloading – finds Matt Smith’s Eleventh incarnation coming face to face with David Tennant’s beloved Tenth. Also on deck is the mysterious Doctor played by John Hurt, who we met at the end of The Name Of The Doctor.

There’s plenty to enjoy in the trailer, even if it doesn’t show any footage from the special episode itself (a refreshing change and a policy we’d be happy to see continue until transmission, because, as River Song might say, “spoilers!”) And to mark the episode, there's also a new poster featuring all eleven (at least the canon characters) doctors so far, which was dubbed by Graham Linehan on Twitter as a Whoman Centipede... 

With lots of special programming dedicated to the Doctor, it’s all leading up to this year’s Christmas episode, which will see Smith hand in his TARDIS key and regenerate into Peter Capaldi.
