In celebration of the announcement that ▓▓▓▓▓ ▓▓▓▓▓▓▓ will portray the Twelfth Doctor (some people still consider this a spoiler), our friends at the iTuneses (plural) are making the Series 4 episode The Fires of Pompeii available as a free download for a limited time only.
Aside from being notable for the appearance of one Mr. ▓▓▓▓▓▓▓, The Fires of Pompeii also features future companion Karen Gillan, Phil Davis of Sherlock: A Study In Pink fame, and the source of the one gif that summed up Ten and Donna’s entire relationship:

Have you seen the special clip of Matt Smith and David Tennant? Watch it here.
The 50th Anniversary episode premieres November 23, 2013 unless you live in a country that writes its date as ‘23 November 2013’ which probably means that you’re watching Eurovision right now…
…and aren’t reading this post. Either way, we’ll have details about the Doctor Who 50th soon.
(ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧ HAVE A GREAT DAY! ✧･ﾟ:*✧･ﾟ:*ヽ(◕ヮ◕ヽ)
This is it! The episode we’ve all been waiting for and our last Saturday livetumblring announcement of the season. It seems so soon and yet we’ve been through so much (and we’re only speaking of the past week!)
In less than 10 minutes, the UK will see the season finale of Doctor Who Series 7: The Name of the Doctor.
Six hours later, the US and Canada will have their debut and then Australia about 10 hours after that.
We will be livetumblring tonight’s 8pm ET BBC America Premiere of The Name of the Doctor.
If you haven’t been here for a livetumblring before, it’s where we blog moments from the episode just as they’re happening on the broadcast.
And we’re sorry. We’re so sorry but because we’re livetumblring in real time — there is no way for us to avoid posting spoilers.
If you’re going to be liveposting any of these broadcasts be sure to let your followers know (and tag your posts as spoilers!)
We’ll be using the tags ‘spoilers’ ‘dw spoilers’ and ‘The Name of the Doctor’. If you can’t watch the episode until later this weekend, you can avoid spoilers by installing Tumblr Savior for your browser. Trust us: you’ll be happy you did.
If you’re using the Tumblr mobile app or if the Tumblr Savior stuff is too much to deal with, consider unfollowing us and then refollowing us after you watch the episode.
After Doctor Who, there will be a new episode of Orphan Black on BBC America and Space Channel at 9p EDT, and at 10p on BBC America, it’s a new episode of The Nerdist.
If all goes well, if all goes according to plan, we’ll have something special to post after the broadcast aside from the behind the scenes videos and storyboards and production galleries…
… and of course, we’re talking about the new clip featuring the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors!!!!!!!
In the meantime, it’s Doctor Who Day which means that we’re reblogging your Season Finale setup pics from the Doctor Who Day tag. What are you wearing? What are you eating? Who are you with? We want to know.
There’s still also time for you to get your autograph in for our wall at the Doctor Who Tumblr office at BBC America... Make us a fan sign, some fan art, a selfie with your Tumblr url. Post it to your blog. Submit it through this form. We’re collecting all of them to make a poster out of it for everyone to see whenever they come through the New York office of BBC America — Doctor Who cast, crew, writers, the BBC America staff, and us. You are special and amazing and we want people to know this.
So that’s it! Today is a big day. Message us if you have questions. In the meantime, we’re going to get going!
We understand that a small number of US fans have received in error their DVD edition of Series 7 Part 2 early. We respectfully ask those fans not to divulge information or post content publicly so that fellow fans who have yet to see the episodes do not have their viewing pleasure ruined.
If everyone keeps the secrets safe until next Saturday we will release a special new clip featuring material of the Tenth AND Eleventh Doctor!
Tumblr PSA reminder: We’re liveblogging Doctor Who in an hour. Plan accordingly.
If you’ll be joining us in liveblogging the episode, we suggest that warn your followers as well.
This is your Saturday announcement that we will be livetumblring tonight’s 8pm ET BBC America Premiere of Doctor Who: Nightmare in Silver.
For those of you who have never been to a livetumblring before, it’s where we post moments from the episode to the blog just as they’re happening on the broadcast.
And this may seem like a lot to deal with but because we’re livetumblring in real time — there is no way for us to avoid posting spoilers.
If you’re going to be liveposting be sure to tag your posts ‘spoilers’. We’ll be using the tags ‘spoilers’ ‘dw spoilers’ and ‘Nightmare in Silver’.If you can’t watch the episode until later this weekend, you can avoid spoilers by installing Tumblr Savior for your browser.
If you’re using the Tumblr mobile app or if the Tumblr Savior stuff seems alien to you, you should consider refollowing us after unfollowing us until after you watch the episode.
After the episode, stay tuned for a new episode of Orphan Black on BBC America and Space Channel at 9p EDT. Tatiana Maslany is kind of amazing in it. We’re kind of obsessed with her. So is Emma Roberts.
And at 10p on BBC America, it’s Space Week on The Nerdist so Chris Hardwick’s guests include astronaut Buzz Aldrin(!) and
cute Mars Rover Mohawk guyNASA Systems Engineer Bobak Ferdowsi(!).
Meanwhile, we will be posting behind the scenes clips and production galleries of today’s show along with the prequel to next week’s season finale, The Name of The Doctor.
Make us a fan sign, some fan art, a selfie with your Tumblr url. Post it to your blog. Submit it through this form.

WITH ALL OF YOUR GIFS AND ART AND COSPLAY AND EVERYTHING — YOU ARE THE STARS OF THE DOCTOR WHO TUMBLR.
So yeah. (This post feels really long today.) We’re going to go try to avoid our dashboard for the next few hours while the UK gets through their broadcast of Nightmare of Silver. Have a good day and see you at 8/7c for tonight’s all new episode of Doctor Who!
In the meantime, we’re going to take @BBCDoctorWho up on their idea of making today Doctor Who Day. LET’S HAVE SOME FUN BY DOING FUN THINGS AND DOING FAN THINGS AND USING CAPS LOCK wHEneVeR wE LikE!!!
