Apparently a full trailer has been shown at SDCC. I wonder we'll get to see it!

In the mean time, here's some Time-War-looking first photos from the 50th. Very Happy







I wasn't originally looking forward to seeing the Daleks again... But after seeing these pics, I'm actually a little more excited!

It's the 50th Anniversary.

I'd have been sad if they weren't included at least a little. Let's face it, it's thanks to the angry pepperpots that the show really took off.

I know the Daleks should be in the 50th, but I'm just so bored of them now... The NuWho era has overused them.

When you think that by the time they will be in this special, it will have been over a year since they were on. And they only had a cameo in the 20th special.

I think it's less that NuWho has overused them and more then they are always seemingly wiped out of existence only to spring back in more and more convoluted methods. Victory of the Daleks will be a favorite of mine solely because it broke this cycle and made the Daleks a reoccurring threat again.

I'm much happier with the Daleks when you don't have to devote half an episode to explaining why they're back again.

There's a theory going around that Smith could regenerate in the 50th special rather than the Christmas special. I hope so, personally, because it means we'd get a full Capaldi episode this year! Very Happy

DONT READ IF YOU DONT WANT "SPOILERS"

What can we tell from some meticulous analysis/guessing? Well, the eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) seems to use better conditioner than the tenth (David Tennant).

More importantly, if we zoom in, it looks like we’re finally going to see the legendary Time War between the Time Lords and the Daleks. Two of the tin pot space dictators are exploding in the foreground [1], while symbols written in the Timelord’s language [2] hover in the back (they’re the circular patterns that look like a classy Spirograph.)



The Time War happened off-screen, between the 1996 movie starring Paul McGann and the relaunch of the TV series with Christopher Eccleston. The battle wiped out both the Timelord planet of Gallifrey and the entire Dalek army, and the Doctor was forced to commit some terrible atrocity to end the bloodshed. The fact that John Hurt [3] is striding away from the carnage like Bruce Willis in Die Hard heavily implies he is the previously unknown, war criminal version of the Doctor from this period.

It looks like other long-running storylines will finally be resolved. The front of the Tardis [4] seems to be bouncing away from the explosion like the van doors in The Italian Job. This suggests we’ll find out why the Tardis self-destructed (taking the universe with it) on Rory and Amy Pond’s wedding day at the end of series five. Writer Steven Moffat never bothered to explain this at the time, leaving fans to wonder if the Doctor filled the Tardis with diesel instead of unleaded.

Also, the words “Bad Wolf” [5] have more significance than your average piece of graffiti scrawled on a toilet wall. At the end of the first series of new-Who, Rose Tyler became some sort of temporal goddess, and spread the words across time as a warning to herself. (Honestly, this made sense at the time.) Billie Piper is returning with David Tennant for the 50th, but could the seeds of this story really have been planted so long ago?

And finally, here’s an ultra-geeky detail you might have missed. See the sonic screwdriver in John Hurt’s hand? See how it’s glowing red [6]? We’ve seen a red sonic screwdriver before. It belonged to River Song, the Doctor’s wife.

The first time the Doctor met River was in a planet-sized library. She died almost immediately, but was saved by the ‘red settings’ on a special screwdriver the Doctor had given her just beforehand. Could be nothing more than a photo filter, could be the most important coincidence in the history of the universe. We'll find out on Saturday 23 November.

No more then Genesis of the Daleks is the opening shot of the Last Great Time War. It's a story being retroactively utilized.

What is in Hurt's bandolier? Is that his Sonic Screwdriver?

I would guess it could be. It looks almost like the end of a classic sonic.

One thing about that shot of the three of them (Beyond the fact I wish Eccelston was there):

It really showcases why Matt got the part. Despite being the youngest person in the room, he and Hurt have the same gaze to their eyes - the same weight of age. David's just got this "I'm the Doctor Again!" brightness.

Wow, you are right. Matt looks so tired, like he has the weight of the universe on his shoulders....

I was] a bit gutted [not to be asked], but [the older Doctors] are not in it. There's all kinds of rumours... doing the rounds. One gets tired of trying to refute things on Twitter and the like, but take it from me - I'm not in it. The thing about Doctor Who is... if not now, then maybe some other time. That's the beauty of it - we can always come back." (Paul McGann)

I cannot wait to see the simulcast on the big screen at our 50th Anniversary celebration party. Also very excited to get a hold of the Day of the Doctor posters coming in this week (woohoo!)

Finally, an ACTUAL trailer for the 50th anniversary will air on Saturday at 8pm GMT on BBC1. It's unbelievable that they've left it until now. Here's the article: http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/the-day-of-the-doctor-trailer-saturday-54038.htm

Also, new pics: http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/the-day-of-the-doctor-new-pics-2-54755.htm

Yeah, but between this and the SDCC trailer...hype's never been bigger. Deny the fans, build the interest. Because honestly, how many Whovians and new Whovians are chomping at the bit to get a glimpse and going all over social media about it.

It's the best Free Press the Beeb's ever gotten.
