The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th anniversary special. 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.

minivinnie asked: What should I do? I have tickets to the Day of the Doctor screening on Monday, November 25th, but I also have BBC America to watch it on Saturday. Should I see it live with everyone else and just have a heighted experience of it in 3D on Monday OR should I lock myself in a room from Saturday to Monday trying to avoid spoilers to see it for the first time in theaters Monday?
We’re doing the “Watch Several Times on Saturday AND Then Again on Monday” option because why not?

William Hartnell once said: “If I live to be 90, a little of the magic of Doctor Who will still cling to me.” I don’t know what it is, but there is something in the fibre of the programme that is rather magical. Although Sherlock Holmes is in its DNA, and HG Wells is a source, what’s fantastic about the show is that it is a TV original, not an adaptation. It is one of the greatest single ideas that television has produced.
There’s something rather wonderful about the creation of Doctor Who, something very smoky and Novemberish. I imagine people on buses with wet raincoats, that kind of Britain. And going through it like a typhoon are two young people, Verity Lambert and Waris Hussein, with fantastic ideas, and an older man, William Hartnell, who sort of becomes young by association.
irishwolfling asked: I just watched The Science of Doctor Who (with professor Brian Cox) on BBC 1, and it was amazing! Will the American/international Whovians get a chance to watch it?

Written by Mark Gatiss, An Adventure in Space and Time features David Bradley as Hartnell, the first actor to play the Doctor in 1963.
Jessica Carney, who was six when her grandfather took the role, said he would have been “thrilled” by the show.
She was clearly overcome with emotion after a screening in London on Tuesday.
Some fans had queued up for hours for return tickets to the preview, held at BFI Southbank, which was attended by a number of former Doctor Who stars.
Afterwards, Carney thanked Bradley “for playing my grandfather so wonderfully”.
An Adventure in Space and Time is set in the first half of the 1960s and focuses on the people who created the sci-fi show, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next week.
