Full Trailers For The Day Of The Doctor
The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary is almost here

The BBC had hoped to wait until this Saturday night to premiere the two new, full trailers for 50th anniversary Doctor Who episode The Day Of The Doctor, but the vagaries of internet leakage meant things had to be moved up. So the trailer is officially online for everyone to see (with the second at the bottom of the page). 

From the looks of this footage, show overlord Steven Moffat has gone for epic, with a proper look at the Time War between the Daleks and the Time Lords that has cast a shadow across the entire run of the series since it returned in 2005. It also appears to indicate that – spoilers! – John Hurt’s mystery Doctor comes from that period, and fits in between Paul McGann’s Eighth and Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth, thereby screwing up the numbering system something rotten.

Also fun are some brief glimpses of the Tenth (David Tennant) and Eleventh (Matt Smith)’s Doctors together, plus brief snippets of UNIT war rooms, the Zygons, Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) appearing to go all Bad Wolf-y again and someone riding a horse out of the TARDIS. Because horses are cool, we suppose.

It all looks like it could be fun, but will it be too OTT even for Moffat’s run on the series? Well, it is the 50th anniversary, so you knew they were going to go bonkers with it.

American readers will be pleased to know that BBC America plans to simulcast the show at 2:50pm ET/11:50am PT on November 23 (lined up with the Beeb’s 7:50pm screening) to cut down on piracy.

The Mark Gatiss-penned drama about the birth of Who as a series, An Adventure In Space And Time, is set for 9pm on Friday November 22 in America-land. For more on both the origin drama and the 50th anniversary special, land your TARDIS at any good newsagent or pick up the digital version of the new Empire. Allons-y!
