BBC is preparing the world for the simultaneous broadcast of “Day of the Doctor“, a special episode of Doctor Who marking fifty years since the first episode aired in November 23, 1963. The Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) are still stuck in the Doctor’s timeline, and the only way out is to open the lock on the Doctor’s darkest day, The Time War. David Tennant (The Tenth Doctor) and John Hurt (The War Doctor) appear alongside Rose Tyler (Billie Piper). Two trailers have been released, with a microsite outlining venues for watching the episode in 3D on the big screen. Content is being unlocked on the Doctor Who Save The Day site, doctorwhosavetheday.com, in response to social media using the hashtag #SavetheDay.
BBC’s Doctor Who Facebook Page is counting down to November 23 over 11 days with a series of photographs featuring past incarnations of Doctor Who, and infographics featuring the number 11.
