@Acura_Max: Looks great. I'm dying to see a trailer.
@AnimeDefender: I believe it's a special episode.
It has just been announced that the episode will be broadcast simultaneously in 75 countries around the world at the same time for the first time ever.
Steven Moffat, Showrunner for Doctor Who and Executive Producer of the 50th Anniversary episode adds: “The Doctor has always been a time traveller - now he's travelling time zones. On the 23rd of November, it won't be the bad guys conquering the Earth - everywhere it will be The Day of the Doctor!”
There's a rumor going around that the lost 106 classic episodes of Doctor Who have been recovered. Here's a bit of background info. Back then the BBC used to erase tapes for space-saving and economic purposes. Because of that 106 of 253 episodes from the first six years of the series are missing. Mirror, a tabloid magazine, has reportedly found evidence that copies of the episodes are in Ethiopian TV and Radio Agency. BBC is reportedly in talks to recover the tapes. This sounds like great news. If this is real, I can imagine a remastered edition of the series being released. I would kill to see that.
This is more like it. It has been confirmed that 11 lost episodes of the classic Doctor Who episodes have been found in a Nigerian TV station’s store room. The 11 episodes are from the 1960's and depict two stories:
The episodes have been remastered and you buy them now on itunes.
“Every single avenue seemed to have been exhausted” said Doctor Who writer Mark Gatiss of the hunt for the tapes. “But every now and then something turns up. To have two virtually complete stories out of the blue is absolutely incredible.
“It’s the Yeti on the underground, it’s the quintessential Doctor Who story – it’s the most British thing you could ever imagine.”
The first images of the 50th anniversary special have appeared.
@KingOfAsh: You're not the only one. I felt that his series had some very interesting concepts. Like The End of the World for example. It's too bad he isn't in the 50th anniversary episode. I'm guessing he was too busy doing Thor: Dark World.
@SamJaz: I'm hyped!
I am HYPED for November. Its been too long since i watched doctor Who. I really hope they eliminate Matt smith in this special and not a few episodes after. It would be a most epic end to the 11th doctor. The images make it look like the three doctors are cooperating. I always thought the old doctor who would be the villain in this special (Gosh, an evil doctor, how would that even work?).
If the old guy isn't the villain you have to wonder what sort of threat would require the appearance of three doctors; or rather what sort of threat could survive three doctors.
This is going to be the best Christmas special ever. I agree that Eccleston doesn't get his due credit. No one ever even mentions him in doctor who discussions; and technically he was the first doctor of the new generation.
