Just What the Doctor Who Ordered: Fresh Photos

Get More: Photo Gallery

With Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary special now less than a week away, BBC America has dropped a buncha new photos from the much-anticipated TV event.

Exactly how many of these are brand-new photos from the Steven Moffat-penned Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor, I admittedly cannot tell. (I chose getting them to you over math.) But there are many, some featuring guest stars John Hurt and Billie Piper, plus David Tennant aka the Tenth Doctor.

The logline for the milestone outing: “In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.”

Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor will be globally (universally?) simulcast next Saturday, Nov. 23, at 2:50 pm ET, with an embellished encore airing at 7 pm that evening.

  • The coat John Hurt wears as the War Doctor (8.5?) reminds me a lot of the leather coat Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor wears. Maybe he had just regenerated at the start of the series?

    • I don’t think he had just regenerated before the start of the series, because there are sightings of nine in past points in time. The war doctor is the doctor that forced on him from the sisterhood of karn, and wanted to forget it.

    • Check out “The Night of the Doctor” short. The coat resemblance might make more sense!

  • I’m so freaking excited about this! I can watch it Saturday and then I get to see it in 3D at the theater Monday night!! Wishing they could do that with every episode…3D on a big movie screen LOL

    • Your friend’s sister does but your friend doesn’t? Her sister is doing some miraculous internet job that rakes her in a small fortune each month and yet your friend herself hasn’t decided to do it too? How dumb is your friend, huh? Gonna be kicking her own imaginary ass in the future, I’ll bet!

  • I’ve been binge-watching all the seasons of new-Doctor Who. I can’t wait for Saturday. A little part of me hopes that they bring back some more of the past doctors and companions. I know that they’ve all said that they’re not in it, but I hope that’s just so we, the faithful viewers, will be surprised.

  • I’d much rather have Paul McGann as the Doctor! Seeing him again made the Doctors after him look like amateurs.

  • How will the encore airing be “embellished”?
