DOCTOR WHO “The Day of the Doctor” Teaser

Well, it’s not quite an actual trailer, but this specially-shot, minute-long teaser for “The Day of the Doctor,” the 50th Anniversary special of Doctor Who, is pretty damned cool. It features current Doctor Matt Smith narrating whilst 3D images of the various former Doctors and companions zoom by until finally reaching Smith who’s on the top of a Hoodoo somewhere. That’s right, a Hoodoo.

It’s a very cool 61 seconds that again insists upon us taking the time to #SaveTheDay, even if it really tells us nothing about the special itself. I’m super okay with that, actually. I don’t want to know too much (or anything) going in beyond that which we’ve already seen. Unrelated: Do you think it’s weird we haven’t seen any promotional stills of Billie Piper? Like, at all. The ones they released last week were of Smith, Tennant, Hurt, Coleman, and Jemma Redgrave, and that one script-reading photo had Smith, Tennant, Coleman, and Joanna Page. Huh, interesting.

Anyway, “The Day of the Doctor” will be on your screens November 23rd on BBC America.

  4. -Di. says:

    I’ll miss Matt Smith as the Doctor!!

    Someone took the time to break down the trailer. Here it is. It’s pretty cool!!

  5. DJ Kento says:

    Absolutely in love with this trailer. I really can’t wait for the special. I’ll be in the theater with my 3D glasses on ready to go… Fez on the top of my head, popcorn in my lap.

  6. Kristoffer says:

    with so much stuff that encompasses the show you would struggle to reference everything, so it’s understandable some things are missed out.

    Looks like this is going to be a ripper of a good fun.

  7. Stacy says:

    I find it weird that they show “Billie Piper” from behind. Where are the Ponds? I see all the Easter Eggs, but hmm.. This is strange, but good!

  8. Chris says:

    Love all the Easter Eggs in it
    Fez, Jelly beans, K9, Clara’s leaf, cricket ball, Paul McGann, The brainy specs, The Robots of Death, Cyberman, Even the third doctor’s car Bessie.

  9. I can’t wait.. This is going to be AMA….wait for it…ZING!

    still feel depressed about my Raggedy Man leaving…..

    I appreciate the use of the word “Hoodoo”!

    Also, is it weird that I saw this and my first thought was, “Oh thats a fun save the date. I should suggest this to the fiance for possible goofy wedding ‘Save the Dates’ to digitally send to potential guests?”

    I think I just answered my own question.

  11. Alona Morning says:

    I’ve been wondering the exact same thing about Billie Piper not showing up in any of the promotional materials! Something is going on and I can’t wait to find out what it is!

  12. Matthew says:

    Brilliant, ticked all the boxes. First and foremost spoiler free, second call out to every Doctor, third K9 and Sarah Jane. Brilliance, can’t wait to see this! Hope it’s in 3D over here in Canada.
