Doctor Who 50th anniversary special: New trailer provides first look at episode footage

doctor-who-logoThe BBC have released the first 40-second trailer for Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor. It’s packed full of tantalising little clues as to what to expect, adding to the details which have already been made public. You can read my initial observations on the Metro website here.

4 Comments on Doctor Who 50th anniversary special: New trailer provides first look at episode footage

  1. Firstly: here be spoilers

    First impressions are it looks great, though the ending in particular is fuelling my theory that John Hurt is the Master. And I am immensely excited for Elizabeth I – is this going to be the start of her relationship with Ten as mentioned in The End of Time? (Yes, I’m a Doctor Who geek.) But very excited now for the 23rd!

    • We’ll have to see about Hurt, but remember that he was firmly introduced as the Doctor via an on-screen caption in the season 7 finale. Everything seems to point to him being the incarnation between the McGann and Eccleston Doctors, particularly given the trailer’s suggestion that we may be seeing events relating to the Time War.

      Good call on Elizabeth, although I think the first encounter between Doctor and QE1 was The Shakespeare Code?

      • The bit at the end of The Shakespeare Code when she shows up at the Globe, orders him to be arrested or executed (I forget her exact words) and he disappears into the Tardis is the Doctor’s first encounter with her, although she’s clearly met him before – I think Martha asks him what he did and he says “I don’t know, but I’m sure I’ll find out”. But it’s mentioned in The End of Time that he married her, and then in The Wedding of River Song he says he meant to elope with her but accidentally left her waiting.

        • Ah, thanks for jogging my memory! I remember the TARDIS dematerialising at the end of The Shakespeare Code with an arrow stuck in its door … 🙂
