Everyone here? Has everyone picked their jaws up yet, following the Saturday special of Doctor Who, The day of the Doctor? Good, good. That’s the penultimate appearance of current Doctor Matt Smith, who will be leaving the show next month during the Christmas special, making way for Peter Capaldi to take over. Capaldi might also just be the final Doctor as well.
So what’s the name of this special then? Brace yourself for…The time of the Doctor.
Missed the Extras post yesterday? That’s probably why Kervyn is crying right now, as he slipped the teaser trailer for The time of the Doctor inside there. Here’s the embed for the trailer, as well as a scene by scene breakdown.
“This planet. What’s it called?” Smith asks. “Trenzalore”, says a mysterious lady.
At which point we cut to some Daleks wobbling in out of the mist.
A new and improved Cyberman, which is where I hope to see my favourite Who monster get some Canary Wharf revenge on the Skaro gang.
A member of the Silence, but we’ll forget about him when we scroll down.
And some Weeping Angels, out for a stroll.
And a bell shall toll, which has always been a signal for regeneration in Doctor Who.
There’s no word yet if this special will be on the local BBC channel like Day of the Doctor was, but I’ll update as soon as I hear from them. The time of the Doctor broadcasts on Christmas Day, and stars Matt Smith for one last time.
