The Day of the Doctor – Extended Full Trailer

Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor – The Trailer

Saturday 23 November 7.50pm

The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th anniversary special.

In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

Anyone spot the Daleks within the ships, looks like it has a black dome…

    Is anyone else thinking how Elizabeth 1st is in this and the painting of Gallifrey was accompanied by the phrase “Elisabeths credentials”

    Me and my brother sort of came up with a John Hurt theory.

    Moffat said to count the regenerations.
    We saw 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 10-11…
    But not 8-9… What if the New Who Doctor is a completely different person? What if the New Doctor isn’t the Original Doctor? Maybe he’s a completely different Timelord?

    Then we saw that new minisode. We saw 8-8.5/The War Doctor. But still not 8-9. So… What if?

    As I said, this is just a theory, but it seems okay? 🙂

    I bet the day of the doctor will just be a new series celebration with minor easter eggs rather than a 50 years celebration


    November 14th, 2013 - 7:22pm

    Looks good but i hope Steven Moffat and John Hurt don’t mess it up

    this is my john hurt theory

    on gallifrey there is an organisation of time lords who want to work against rasslon and the other time lords

    so they make a weapon time lord

    who is capable of killing the time lords . but to this they need a great and power full time lord so they call the doctor (magan) and they tell him what the time lords are panning and the doctor agrees to be a weapon so they kill the doctor and he regenerated but they tamper with the regeneration and he turns into john hurt
    and this doctor was created to kill gallifrey that is all this doctor want to do is kill all the time lords and daleks so the john hurt doctor goes to destroy gallifrey and so he dose .using the moment he destroyed the time lords ,the daleks, the time warm, and gallifrey. but this event causes him to regenerated he now regenerates into the 9th doctor and the 9th doctor is thrilled with guilty in what he had done so he decides to forget that regeneration and never remember it until now…..

    omg cant wait counting the days lol
    cant wait to c David Tennant back in action and rose BTW is any other doctor going to be in the 50th or is is just David and Matt
    and how does rose get back from the parallel universe (Pete’s world)

    • Anonymous

      November 12th, 2013 - 6:39pm

      Well its Matt, David and Hurt coz Hurt is the Forgotten Incarnion of the Doctor. Rose doesn’t go back to Pete’s World its when she travels with the Tenth Doctor.


    November 12th, 2013 - 7:22am

    Case no one has heard, yesterday’s Sun newspaper said that Steven Moffat has come up with an storyline for the Christmas Special which will will [or might see] the Doctor being given a complete new life cycle of regenerations [yes, I know the Time Lord’s are dead, so how can he possibly get a complete new life cycle ? I don’t know, just have to wait and see] so that Doctor Who can continue for another 50 years, right up to the shows 100th Anniversary on Saturday 23rd November 2063.

    Just thought I’d share this news, case some of you don’t read the Sun 😉

    • 100000BC

      November 12th, 2013 - 5:33pm

      But I thought Steven Moffat wanted the new Doctor to be the last so there was a sense of mortality and that’s why he added the Hurt Doctor in.


      November 12th, 2013 - 5:39pm

      What made you think that bud ?.

    • impossible girl, lol

      November 12th, 2013 - 6:04pm

      some how a dont think so soz
      but that is just to long people will give up on the show

      Not necessarily…

    • The 13th Doctor

      November 13th, 2013 - 4:08pm

      Doctor who’s lasted 50 years against all the odds; why not 50 more?
      There may be hiatuses but it will never die!
      😉 😛 😀


      November 13th, 2013 - 5:19pm

      The 13th Doctor – AMEN TO THAT BRO !!! 😉 😀 🙂

    I hope the 11th Doctor has a moment with Rose.


      November 12th, 2013 - 8:53am

      I’m sure he will, thou, I think seeing Rose after all this time might upset the Doctor, seeing as loved her so much. True, he only traveled with her in his 9th and 10th incarnations, but his still the same man she once traveled with in the past.

    • Sandra

      November 12th, 2013 - 12:52pm

      Don’t forget, she lives with the 1/2 doctor in Pete’s world! (lucky girl)


      November 12th, 2013 - 2:41pm

      Sandra – True, but it’s not the series 4 version of Rose with the clone Doctor, it’s THE 10th Doctor and Rose from series 2.

    • Doctor Stu

      November 12th, 2013 - 5:19pm

      But no one actually knows that yet

    • Anonymous

      November 12th, 2013 - 6:43pm

      What do you mean Doctor Stu? Moffat clearly said it was the 10th Doctor and Rose from Series 2

    • Doctor Stu

      November 12th, 2013 - 7:14pm

      Oh right then, sorry I didn’t know that.

      when did moffat say that

      and if he did rule one moffat lies

    • Sandra

      November 13th, 2013 - 2:00pm

      If she’s the 10th Doctor’s Rose, then why are her eyes glowing as if she has the Time Vortex in her? The 9th Doctor kissed that right out of her and put it back into the Tardis.


    November 11th, 2013 - 9:21pm

    i think hurt is the doctor that ended the time war
    and i think rose is the time vortex personified, telling hurt “this time is fixed, you must do this…” so she is the time vortex in human form.

      November 12th, 2013 - 1:41pm

      I wouldn’t be surprised if your right!

  • matt9982

    November 11th, 2013 - 5:05pm

    Maybe the Time War is Unlocked and the Doctors (Hurt, Tennant and Smith) are called upon by the Time Lords to End the war or help. Also Rose could be a guide sent by the Time Lords to help them.

    • Andre Pacheco

      November 11th, 2013 - 7:35pm

      but we have seen rose come from london

    • 100000BC

      November 11th, 2013 - 7:37pm

      What matt9982 means is that Rose might not be the real Rose.

    • matt9982

      November 11th, 2013 - 9:39pm

      Yeah, or some kind of entity

    • Scott’s TARDIS

      November 12th, 2013 - 7:48am

      Perhaps Rose is normal but the Time Lords possess her every once on a while to give the Doctor’s updates.

    • TheExtremeBlueTARDIS

      November 12th, 2013 - 4:35pm

      Scott’s TARDIS, perhaps something like The Oracle in the old myths, that stayed inside a person’s body and every now and then give out prophecies. Ross could be something similar to that.

  • the astronaut of death

    November 11th, 2013 - 7:03am

    if you stop the extended trailer 00:21

    the man and the far right don’t you think he looks a bit like magan with short hair

    • Anonymous

      November 11th, 2013 - 3:44pm

      Yeah I saw that but Paul did say he wasn’t going to be in it

    • tardis mike

      November 11th, 2013 - 4:02pm

      0.21 far right – inside box – DAVROS!!!!!


      November 11th, 2013 - 4:26pm

      Tardis Mike – I’m not sure that is Davros [thou I do hope we will see him during the Time War scenes in this story].

      Plus, given the size of the box, it don’t look big enough to give Davros to fit his chair inside it, so if it was Davros, then it would appear to me that his been removed from his chair and placed inside the box, which would be bad, as he needs his chair to survive.

      Plus, it looks more like the original Davros from 1975’s ‘Genesis of the Daleks’ rather then the 2008 version.

    • matt9982

      November 11th, 2013 - 9:40pm

      Maybe its a model?

  • im no longer not going to be here

      peter Davidson is suppose to be involved

    • 100000BC

      November 10th, 2013 - 7:46pm

      If you look closely in the trailer you’ll find loads of classic stuff; if you’re not happy try Big Finish’s “The Light at the End”. It would be very hard to get the classic Doctors looking like they did during their respective eras; more than just a wig and the costume.

      What? You say that this is not a celebration on Classic – Who, yet this trailer of a minute and a half is littered with classic references.
