Doctor Who: The Day Of The Doctor

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.

Written by Steven Moffat

Directed by Nick Hurran

Executive produced by Steven Moffat and Faith Penhale

Produced by Marcus Wilson

Stars: Matt Smith, David Tennant and Jenna Coleman with Billie Piper and John Hurt

    Really!? Where did you get this from? If this is true then I’m even more excited; as I was working on the basis that we had discovered he was the 8.5 doctor, and the excitement and mystery had worn off…
    but this changes everything!!! 😀

    Steven moffat has ruled out an 8.5 doctor.

    In the run up to the 50th Anniversary, I’ve decided that this Saturday I’m going to watch ‘Dr.Who & the Daleks’, followed by ‘Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.’, and then watch 1 story for each Doctor, counting down from 11 to 1 –

    11th Nov – The Doctor’s Wife
    12th Nov – Planet of the Ood
    13th Nov – Boom Town
    14th Nov – The Movie
    15th Nov – Remembrance of the Daleks
    18th Nov – The Mark of the Rani
    19th Nov – Earthshock
    20th Nov – Genesis of the Daleks
    21st Nov – Carnival of Monsters
    22nd Nov – The Tomb of the Cybermen
    23rd Nov – An Unearthly Child

    Anyone else planning to do a similar countdown of their own ? 🙂

    As the consensus is that this is about the time war, then I guess this means timelords (Timothy Dalton et. al) or HOPEFULLY Derek Jacobi playing the Master before he used the Chameleon Arch 🙂

    Anyway, the possibilities are endless….

    The doctor always new this day would come the john hurts doctor may have done something to the time lock whilest he was in the time war to let them go back to it , anyway we know it’s not entirely impossible (dalek caan) and also Clara went throught the doctors time stream although its time locked the time war is still in the doctors past which means Clara could still enter it , it maybe possible dalek caan somehow got into the doctors time steam as he could predicted the future or something like that maybe dalek caan fell into his own time stream as he was in the time war (before escaping into the void ship) and so maybe he saw his own future but it was too much and drove him in sane? , there’s definitely a VERY big secret about the time war!

    the paintings are of all the doctors and they come
    alive, the war is the time war.

    I’m guessing the “murderous Elizabethan plot” is where the zygons come in – since that’s where they were seen in the pics of them 🙂

    i think john hurt is the valeyard and blew up the tardis

  • Dalek sec

    Usually it’s all about who’s the best doctor or disagreeing on whether Classic who is better than New Who and visa versa. This flaming will be the downfall to humanity. And you shall bow down to your masters. Daleks shall rein supreme!!!

  • Dalek Sec

    November 5th, 2013 - 7:48am

    John Hurt could be the valeyard or something. Anyway besides Elizabethan England and a mysterious painting, this plot doesn’t really give us much. Nevertheless the 50th is looking pretty good. I hope to see a lot of Daleks in here.

    this sounds brilliant. i can not wait!

    He may kill himself for hes rage and anger and destroying hes home

  • RYCBAR123

    November 4th, 2013 - 9:39pm

    Maybe the painting is even a secret Van Gogh one that he imagined after he and Amy left? Who knows! :3

  • RYCBAR123

    November 4th, 2013 - 9:36pm

    An ancient battle in space, eh? I’m guessing Time War? :3 as for the modern and Elizabethan ones… No idea! I wonder if they’re all going to be linked to The Doctor’s past, like a secret painting of the Time War comes to life in 2013, an alien race start murdering people in Elizabethan times, but they’re actually abducting them and leaving behind fake bodies. And the abductees are used as meat shields in the Time War! Completely wild guessing here, but who knows?! However it plays out, it”s gonna be molto bene, fantastic, brilliant, good and cool!

    I hadn’t thought of that, and I thought I had paid attention, turns out I’m a little slow!!!

  • ROCKSTAR

    I can t wait any longer !

  • Dalek The Supreme

    November 4th, 2013 - 7:51pm

    Here, the Christmas special, I don’t particularly mind which, as long as they get an appearance in before the 11th Doctor regenerates.

  • Dalek The Supreme

    November 4th, 2013 - 7:44pm

    It seems highly likely, but Moffat is known for his unpredictability. However, it seems ever more likely it’s the Time War with each and every spoiler. We’ve been waiting since 2005 to see this event, and now we will!

  • the 13th doctor

    November 4th, 2013 - 7:42pm

    I would like to see them back since this looks to be the conclusion of their story arc 🙂 and cybermen are rumoured to be in the christmas special 🙂

  • JOR EL

    November 4th, 2013 - 7:31pm

    Sounds brilliant! Three different arcs at once? Now that’s something new!!!

  • the 13th doctor

    November 4th, 2013 - 7:14pm

    I was just talking about that further down and I agree with you there! I wonder how the time war will be brought in though, as it is supposed to be over and time locked?

  • the astronaut of death

    November 4th, 2013 - 6:50pm

    don’t think so but they might be in the xmas special
