  • the astronaut of death

    October 20th, 2013 - 12:03pm

    did anyone see part of the classic console in the junk yard

    • booboo

      October 20th, 2013 - 12:05pm

      yes just poking out on the left

    Can someone please tell me where rose is? I can hear her day “Doctah” after matt says “in the name of the doctor”. Is she standing in red next to an ood and an auton?

    • TheRedCreeperTRC

      October 20th, 2013 - 12:19pm

      she’s next to Nr. 8 nearr the end, i think

    • Steampunk Doctor

      October 20th, 2013 - 3:51pm

      In front of the Ood

    anyone else noctice the reflection of susan when clara is looking at the globe?

    • Some bloke

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:43am

      that wasn’t susan, that was sarah’s reflection

  • Sam (UDWF1)

    October 20th, 2013 - 10:17am

    I’m glad the policeman made an appearance. The unsung hero of Doctor Who, he is.

    • RYCBAR123

      October 20th, 2013 - 11:21am

      I think I’m missing something here from not having seen many of the classics, nine and a bit of ten. Can you explain the policeman? πŸ™‚

    • booboo

      October 20th, 2013 - 12:08pm

      he was in the very first moments of An Unearthly Child out side the junk yard

    • the astronaut of death

      October 20th, 2013 - 12:21pm

      he is suppose to be in the 50th

    • RYCBAR123

      October 20th, 2013 - 3:26pm

      Oh, okay thanks πŸ™‚ Hopefully I can see some more of the classics soon though πŸ™‚

  • Mister

    October 20th, 2013 - 10:07am

    WOAH! That’s amzing. It’s so fun spotting all the doctors. I could watch it for hours!

    • Mister

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:10am

      Tom Baker and his Jelly Babies!

  • timelord327

    October 20th, 2013 - 9:10am

    i hope they use that music as the 50th aniversarys theme!

    • The Big Blue Box

      October 20th, 2013 - 9:51am

      Yes, I wondered if they will, I hope so too as it is an amazing piece!

  • Daleksupremefan

    October 20th, 2013 - 9:04am

    cannot get enough of watching it. Really brilliant and a good way to celebrate all of the doctors. Well done BBC i knew you would not let us down. Bring on the 23rd of November and The Day Of The Doctor.

  • Matt Smithy

    October 20th, 2013 - 8:20am

    I wonder why pieces of the key to time are floating round Matt’s head… maybe it has some role to play?

    • Some bloke

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:41am

      No, it has nothing to do with the day of the doctor. If you noticed, throughout the ENTIRE trailer there were little things from the past, like bessie, and miniature robot yeti figures, and sonic screwdrivers from all and tardis keys from all and all the monsters etc.

    • 100000BC

      October 20th, 2013 - 1:55pm

      The Key to time featured near to the beginning too, but in case you didn’t notice, also floating round Matt’s head is Davison’s cricket ball and a number of TARDIS keys and sonics, and a laser screwdriver, etc. Most of these also featured earlier on in the trailer.

  • the astronaut of death

    October 20th, 2013 - 7:59am

    doctor who trailer one of the most popular things on youtbe presently

  • the astronaut of death

    October 20th, 2013 - 7:54am

    I would love to go to that planet

  • Dalek 105

    October 20th, 2013 - 7:28am


    • Adam

      October 20th, 2013 - 7:40am

      Has anyone missed John hurt in front of tennant? πŸ™‚

    • the astronaut of death

      October 20th, 2013 - 7:54am

      I notised the figure but did not realise It was hurt

    • 100000BC

      October 20th, 2013 - 1:52pm

      I’m not sure it is Hurt. It would make logical sense seeing as though he is the one character that is in plain view but not obvious who it is but it doesn’t look like him.


    October 20th, 2013 - 7:23am


    I hope that version of the Doctor Who theme will be used when Peter Capaldi is officially the Doctor on screen, I like it so much !!!!!!! πŸ˜€

  • Hector Sandler

    October 20th, 2013 - 1:57am

    Well it always great to me pity it ashame to see Matt Smith go. I like them all since the series revived & return.

  • Some bloke

    October 20th, 2013 - 12:04am

    That was awful! I mean it was ok, but I’ve seen better fan stuff on youtube! And Matt’s wig lookes awful too! If that’s what it looks like in an advert, god knows what it’s going to look like in the christmas special πŸ™ Really disappointed with that!

    • Jamie

      October 20th, 2013 - 12:15am

      Better fan stuff on youtube? Really?

    • Some bloke

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:33am

      Ok sorry, I take it ALL back, I’ve probably watched it about ten times now, and I have to say I like it! and yes Jamie, there is some stuff which could be considered ‘as good’ or ‘better’ than this πŸ™‚

  • ZygonTerror

    October 19th, 2013 - 11:45pm

    Sea Devils are also behind Sarah Jane.


    October 19th, 2013 - 11:31pm

    no i missed it at twenty past but after just watching looks great!

  • Sebatron

    October 19th, 2013 - 11:13pm

    This is INCREDIBLE!
    I cannot wait!

    • doctor who 10

      October 20th, 2013 - 2:25am

      me neither

  • Chris

    October 19th, 2013 - 11:06pm

    It looks like there may be a face carved in the rock 11 is standing on.

    • Tardis’nt

      October 20th, 2013 - 12:33am

      no, just gallifreyan text

    • 100000BC

      October 20th, 2013 - 1:47pm

      Above the gallifreyan text, yes I saw that too…

  • Tardis’nt

    October 19th, 2013 - 11:03pm

    below k9, on an iron gurdurr it says ‘no more’ this could be important???…

    • Tardis’nt

      October 19th, 2013 - 11:05pm

      I also saw Clara’s leaf and the paradigm supreme.

  • Nelsonator

    October 19th, 2013 - 10:59pm

    While I was watching the trailer, did anyone see a Sea Devil behind Sarah Jane and maybe if I did, another old dalek from the 60’s.

  • Tardis’nt

    October 19th, 2013 - 10:59pm

    Not sure if anyone has seen the arm of a new cyberman yet

  • Imaginethatnodoor

    October 19th, 2013 - 10:54pm

    Wish we’d get a bit more troughton

  • The Master

    October 19th, 2013 - 10:52pm

    I see nobody has mentioned the Laser Screwdriver. That’s right, it’s in there.

  • AlphaOmega

    October 19th, 2013 - 10:11pm

      And Sarah’s owl!!!!!!

  • The TARDIS

    October 19th, 2013 - 9:46pm

    Annoying how it focuses on David and Matt. Great fun re watching it to find all of the hidden Who things. I also find it better without Matt’s irritating (no offence but I find it a bit melodramatic) narration.

  • Steampunk Doctor

    October 19th, 2013 - 9:41pm

    I wish David Tennant was actually in it though , not just a picture :l Otherwise it is so cool.

  • The TARDIS

    October 19th, 2013 - 9:38pm

    Just a shame that the anniversary episode won’t look like this…

    • Chris

      October 19th, 2013 - 11:05pm

      Right, and you know this because????

    • The TARDIS

      October 20th, 2013 - 7:54am

      Because Moffat has said that it won’t feature classic Doctors. It will look forward not back apparently. I’d love the episode to be like this, but sadly not.

    • doctor4131

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:31am

      moffat has already said he has been lying for months, in the same interveiw that your talking about he even said he hasent stopped just yet

    • thedaleksdeath

      October 20th, 2013 - 11:07am

      Of course his gonna lie! It’s the 50th his obviously going to lie!

    • The TARDIS

      October 20th, 2013 - 12:24pm

      Or he may be trying to stop us being disappointed with a lack of references? If I were him I’d be hyping up all of the references massively! That’d excite me more than anything.

  • 11matt

    October 19th, 2013 - 9:38pm

    so cool

  • Doctor 909

    October 19th, 2013 - 9:37pm

    Looks fantastic! Can’t wait for a trailer with 50th anniversary footage! Well done BBC for such a fantastic trailer!
