“Written by lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, Doctor Who: The Day of The Doctor sees the Doctors (Matt Smith and David Tennant) embark on their greatest adventure across space and time.

Doctor Who, 50th Anniversary Special, “The Day of the Doctor”
Written by Steven Moffat
Directed by Nick Hurran
Aired Saturday, Nov. 23rd on BBC America
Doctor Who may be an international phenomenon, but when it comes to specials, particularly multi-Doctor specials, it doesn’t have the best track record. The Three Doctors (1972-73) , which kicked off the 10th season of the show, is fun, but lacks any significant emotional punch. The Five Doctors (1983), the 20th anniversary special, is a bit of a lark but it not only fails to live up to its title (the Fourth Doctor only barely appears, in one looped clip), it wastes most of its special guest stars. Then there’s The Two Doctors (1985), which doesn’t carry the extra burden of being an anniversary special but still fails to leave much of an impression, despite being an entertaining outing. Throw in the modern series’ spotty »

After an extensive build-up, and hashtag madness from the BBC, we finally all got to see the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who special on Saturday night and my oh my, what a thing of beauty. I think we found a moment to treasure and the BBC also managed to break a world record for the most-watched TV Show across the world at the same time, which is pretty darn impressive.
In London, we were also treated to the 50th Anniversary celebration at the ExCel in London. Alongside sets, costumes and exclusive new dedicated merchandise for all, there were a number of panels with everyone that mattered. We were also lucky enough to attend the 11th Doctor panel with Steven Moffat, Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman and director Nick Hurran as they were finally allowed to talk about ‘Day Of The Doctor‘ – click here for that report!

It was the episode that we all knew couldn't possibly live up to expectations. And it didn't – it exceeded them. Here's a definitive roundup of everything that happened
Spoiler alert: this is a detailed look at the 50th-anniversary special episode of Doctor Who, The Day of the Doctor. Don't read on if you haven't seen it.
'We've got enough warriors, and any old idiot can be a hero. Do what you've always done. Be a Doctor.'
As three Doctors stand in that mysterious barn in the desert, Tennant's 10 and Smith's 11 reassure Hurt's "war Doctor", on the verge of committing xenocide, that he really is worthy of the name and the numbering that comes with it. "You were the Doctor on the day it wasn't possible to get it right."
You do wonder if Steven Moffat wasn't channelling something of his own insecurities with that line. The waves of hype »

Doctor Who fans have been spoilt rotten this weekend, and over the past week and although there were inklings of apprehension alongside the excitement, the truth has come out and it’s been universally agreed (read our review here) that Saturday night’s 50th Anniversary episode was an equally epic and a fitting accolade to all things Who.
Today Thn attended the celebration of all things Doctor Who at the ExCel in London, organised by the glorious BBC. The halls were filled with everything that’s made the longest running Sci-fi show become such a part of our culture. As well as talks in the main theatre, which we’ll come back to, there were endless behind-the-scenes people in attendance to show you how the monsters were made, how the visual effects worked, a make-up and wardrobe trailer, costumes from companions, the Doctor’s various outfits, sets (including an awesome Tardis photo console), props, »

Steven Moffat often infuriates classic Doctor Who fans, his disregard for the laws of time and the stories that have made Doctor Who so special often has them complaining constantly, I’ll admit I find myself looking at the weaknesses in the latest Doctor Who and wondering just why he appears to not care about a character I care so much about. This could be the case with The Day of the Doctor, but if you forget who we have been told time should be, and relax with our view of what we want Doctor Who to be there is something brilliant about the episode and of course the conclusion makes us forget any weakness it had anyway so who cares?

It’s not often you get to describe an event as being fifty years in the making. even less so do you get to mean it. Three Doctors in three timelines converge to give them all a chance to change a terrible moment in their collective past.
The Day of the Doctor
Directed by Nick Hurran
The Doctor is in the present, in his most recent incarnation, picking up Clara, when he gets picked up himself, by Unit, to investigate a mystery at the National Museum. Meanwhile (well, I say meanwhile…) in his previous incarnation, he’s investigating a mystery in Elizabethan Britain, an attack by the Zygons that could lead all the way to the Queen herself. And in another part of the Universe entirely, The War Doctor is making a decision that will put the lives of countless innocents in his hands, a choice that »

The day is finally upon us. The Day Of The Doctor, the Anniversary Special which celebrates a half century of adventures on screen (as well as off) with a time travelling alien and his magic time and space machine. It’s a rare feat for a television show to reach fifty years old and still have all the power to thrill, enrapture and entertain audiences in the same way it has done since the very beginning. There’s the fear that such a celebratory episode would solely bathe in nostalgia, resulting in an episode that only the hard-core followers of the show will be able to truly appreciate. Making such an episode is a challenge worthy of the Doctor himself.
We needn’t have feared though. The Day Of The Doctor is the perfect example of how to do an excellent anniversary special. »

This article contains spoilers. Lots of them.
The Day Of The Doctor
The last time a special anniversary episode of Doctor Who was screened on the show's birthday, we got the Sylvester McCoy-headlined Silver Nemesis. With no disrespect to the Seventh Doctor's battle with the Cyberman - nor to Ace and her catapult - The Day Of The Doctor was in a different class. Back in 1988, the show was struggling, suffering in plain sight despite one or two excellent stories. In 2013, Steven Moffat promised us a story that would change the Doctor forever. And that's pretty much what we got.

From the off, it was clear that this had labour of love stamped throughout it, »
Almost unbelievably, we are down to three days left before the worldwide simulcast of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special episode, Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor. Come on, Saturday! Of course I am not in the least minding that BBC America has pre-empted countless episodes of Kitchen Nightmares and Top Gear in favor of All Who, All the Time all this week. What a treat!
Today we have of course a picture of the Third Doctor, Jon Pertwee, reminding us of how many days are left until the anniversary. Thank you, sir. We also have an interesting cover picture from the Doctor Who Facebook page. Chilling, really, when you consider the second prequel minisode webisode we posted earlier today, The Last Day.
But back to the happiness. We also have a press release about the contents of the Day of the Doctor DVD and Blu-ray package, available on Tuesday, »

A new preview for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special has been unveiled.
The snippet from 'The Day of the Doctor' aired as part of the BBC's annual charity fundraiser Children in Need.
However, the fez-stealing Time Lord soon becomes distracted after spotting a mysterious portal in one corner of the room.
After claiming he "remembers" what he has to do, the Doctor jumps through the portal, lands in a forest and appears to come face-to-face with his previous incarnation (the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant).
Photos from the Nick Hurran-directed episode were first released on Wednesday (November 13).
The full 75-minute special, written by showrunner Steven Moffat, will air on Saturday, November 23 at 7.50pm on BBC One, and will be simulcast globally as well. »
The Night of the Doctor' Mini Episode is here The Bringer of Darkness, the Oncoming Storm, the Doctor, the Warrior - A Time Lord! The 50th Anniversary features Matt Smith, David Tennant and a mysterious incarnation played by John Hurt. Only one appears in the mini episode, The Night of the Doctor. But which? So it seems the previous Doctor actors were lying about any returns and keeping some secrets as with this Paul McGann returns as the Eighth Doctor (who only ever appeared in the 1996 TV Movie, apart from audio series). Also concluded from this prequel, it can be seen that John Hurt's new character will be called 'The War Doctor'. Doctor Who will return with the 50th Anniversary Special on November 23rd, filmed in 3D. It will be directed by Nick Hurran ('Asylum of the Daleks', 'The Girl Who Waited') and written by showrunner Steven Moffat. 'The »

Whilst they don't feature anything That spectacular, BBC have decided to tease us until the trailer release this Saturday giving us an inside look at Doctor Who's biggest event; the 50th Anniversary Special titled "Day Of The Doctor". Theatrical 3D release tickets just recently went on sale across the world, did you get yours yet? The Doctor Who anniversary special has been written by showrunner Steven Moffat and directed by Nick Hurran. It features John Hurt, David Tennant and Matt Smith in the title role, with Jenna Louise-Coleman reprising her role as 11th Doctor's companion Clara. The 50th Anniversary is said to be a "one-off", so there may not be any major consequences going into the Christmas special; Matt Smith's final episode as The Doctor which features his regeneration into the next Doctor, played by The Thick Of It's Peter Capaldi. That's enough rambling for me, so »

“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.”
That’s all the BBC has given us this afternoon, but with this and the news the of the up and coming trailer/minisode called 'The Last Day' we can safely say that the build up to the Doctor’s 50th Anniversary Special has begun.
