Blogtor Who has uploaded a BBC Radio advertisement for The Day of the Doctor to YouTube. Please note that Blogtor Who has added images to the otherwise non-visual audio only advertisement.
It didn’t take long after the BBC’s release of the two Day of the Doctor trailers for screen shots to be posted and analysis to begin on the “hints” contained within. Doctor Who TV has posted an extensive collection of screen caps with some commentary, whilst the Den of Greek has published “So what have we learned from the Doctor Who trailers? Both are worth looking at. The Mirror has quite an extensive run down of the trailer here and WhatCulture! has published “Doctor Who: 10 Most Game-Changing Moments In Day Of The Doctor Trailer” here.
Is this Gallifrey?
Whether the episode concerns the Time War and if the Time Lords appear are amongst the first questions raised. The presence of Dalek ships and the apparent shots of Gallifrey certainly hint at this. Similarly, the exact nature of John Hurt’s Doctor and whether Rose Tyler is in her Bad Wolf persona are issues that have arisen. Although no Classic Series Doctors were spied in the trailers, photos of former companions were shown.
Are these people the Time Lords?
Doctor Who 24/7 has posted six behind the scenes photographs from The Day of the Doctor on Twitter.
Following the release earlier today of a 40 second trailer for the 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor, an extended 1 minute and 20 second trailer has been posted on the BBC’s Doctor Who website. The Doctor Who Mind Robber understands that the extended trailer was broadcast on BBC One tonight.

The Doctor Who TV website has posted details on the 7 minute Doctor Who Mini Episode, The Night of the Doctor. The UK’s Freeview television listings indicate that the episode will go live on the BBC’s Red Button service from 16 November. Presumably it will be available from the BBC’s Doctor Who website at the same time. The Freeview listing describes the Mini Episode as:
The 50th Anniversary features Matt Smith, David Tennant and a mysterious incarnation played by John Hurt. Only one appears in this mini episode, The Night Of The Doctor. But which?
