Doctor Who

The Day of the Doctor is rapidly approaching and here’s a new trailer to get you psyched up! Let’s watch!

What I’m gathering from this that Doctors 10 and 11 are facing off against John Hurt’s unnumbered doctor? Matt Smith has some knowledge of what’s going on but David Tennant does not? Rose is there, but is with John Hurt? Maybe as an echo in his mind?

There’s just enough going on in this trailer that I’m pretty excited to see it. It’ll also be nice to see David Tennant back, not because I think he was better than Matt Smith (I personally hold them in equal esteem) but because I think it’ll be fun to see their doctors interact.

The Day of the Doctor is the 23rd of November around the world, BBC is broadcasting it at the same time everywhere so the time will very depending where you are.

    I flashed back to The End of Time. “The Doctor still possesses the Moment and he’ll use it to destroy Daleks and Time Lords alike.”

    Now we hear Rose (shiny eyes make me think we’re dealing with the Bad Wolf entity again) tell the Doctor that “the moment is coming.”

    I can’t help but wonder if that was a figure of speech, or if it references The Moment mentioned in The End of Time.

      There is a fairly gratuitous shot of what appears to be a Gallifrean city so that seems like a safe bet. Plus, that would mean that John Hurt is the actual 9th doctor, making Christopher Ecceleston the 10th, David Tennant the 11th and Matt Smith the 12th, which would also make things interesting since it’s previously established that a time lord only gets 12 regenerations.

      That number is in dispute but it would make for some interesting storytelling come the time that Peter Capaldi, the next doctor, decides to give up the role.

        I’m sure there’d be some wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey reason they could keep the cash cow alive.

          Or an accounting reason.
