The Day of the Doctor

The BBC have at last revealed the transmission time for the Anniversary Special.  The Day of the Doctor will premiere on BBC One at 7.50pm GMT on the 23rd November, 2013.

The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure yet in this Fiftieth Anniversary special. In 2013, something sinister and terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; back in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in deep space an ancient battle reaches its final devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him, and the only way to fix it is for him to get help from himself!

Starring Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman, David Tennant with John Hurt and Billie Piper. The Special features appearances from the Zygons and the Daleks.  

Not much else is known about the Anniversary Special as it's been very carefully kept under wraps until transmission, but we do know that the ancient battle mentioned in the synopsis is likely to be the Time War!

So will we get to see any of the Doctor's from the shows original television run? Will the dastardly Daleks triumph over the Doctor by destroying his home planet Gallifrey?  Or will the Doctor himself cause Gallifrey's destruction?

Not long to go now as we countdown the Days to the Anniversary.
