Goofs

In the prison scene they discuss the sonic screwdrivers and figure they are all the same software but only updated versions. But the Eleventh doctors screwdriver and TARDIS gets destroyed, and the 'new' TARDIS creates a whole new different screwdriver, it should not be the same software but a completely new one.

The Ultimate fiftieth celebration.
23 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have just finished watching the doctor's fiftieth anniversary celebration 'The Day of the Doctor' and it is a wonderful tribute to the longest running sci-fi series in history.

The fiftieth anniversary is full of 'spoilers', see what I did there. So on the off chance you haven't see it yet, it is the team-up of the two most famous doctors since the reboot in 2005 and has them revisiting the 'moment that defined him' .

The TV show lasts one hour and fifteen minutes, a perfect length and is full of twists and turns and brilliant fan service and dialogue. It is a tribute to all the doctors from past, present and future and combines humour, emotion and brilliance in a fabulous concoction.

'The day of the doctor' is a television event that won't easily be forgotten and is the ultimate way to celebrate 50 years.
