This fall will mark the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who and to celebrate the BBC is releasing a special episode to commemorate the occasion. If you weren’t excited enough already, the BBC has now released a poster for the special episode that features Matt Smith and David Tennant!

“’The Day of the Doctor’ is nearly here!” says Smith. “Hope you all enjoy. There’s lots more coming your way, as the countdown to the 50th begins now.”

“50 years has turned Doctor Who from a television show into a cultural landmark,” says Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer. “Personally I can’t wait to see what it becomes after a hundred.”

    If what it’s rumored to be about it true, I wish they would’ve tried to get McGann into. There are some pics of the audio serials that got me super pumped, but then let back down when I found out what they were from.

    I wish they would spend more time on this story arc than they will probably end up doing, but I can’t complain too much because I haven’t seen it yet.

    November needs to hurry up.

      From what I understand, McGann stated in an interview earlier in the year that he’d still be willing to do a last minute scene if they asked. I was really hoping they’d have tried to include him after that to at least give him one more on-screen appearance as The Doctor (not including flashbacks to scenes from the TV movie or the scene where someone dressed as him ran past Clara).

      I’m still not finished hoping we’ll see him one more time. After all, he met his past selves in his novel adventures, and there is a theory that was hinted at in the scene where both 2nd and 8th Doctors ran past Clara, so maybe one of the later Doctors will eventually cross paths with him in a similar manner.

    I wish Eccleston would show up as a surprise.

    I know it’s not going to happen, and I’m still looking forward to it, but come on get the rest of the Doctors for even a cameo.

    The only part of this I’m even a little miffed at is Billie Piper. Her two season were fine. Let her be. Please. The constant coming back just got a little annoying. She has a Doctor all to herself now. I;m all for bringing people back, but let’s give someone else a chance to be back. regardless, I will prolly still love this and i can’t wait to see what happens. (Rose had better be darn good)

    I am very excited for this. My big question is whether John Hurt is the Eighth Doctor or another we have yet to see.

      If you really want to know, there are a few sites that have some interviews with Hurt where he apparently unintentionally gave it away. I don’t really want to say in case you’d rather be surprised, but it is something that I was angry with at first, but then I later came to think works perfectly, if you consider the wording of the scene at the end of “The Name of the Doctor”.

        I prefer to be like Professor Song with her diary. I will review that ending. I haven’t seen it since it aired. I am currently going through all of the seasons in the 2000’s with my children in order to get ready for the change.
        My children are 5, 5, and 4 and know more about the Doctor than most people I know.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
