Video: “The Day of the Doctor” Preview

Want to see more from “The Day of the Doctor?” If not, we totally understand–we’re so close now!  However, if you crave more check out the slightly spoilery clip below.


VIDEO: The Day of the Doctor–50 Year Trailer

Here’s one of many moments we’ve been waiting for–a trailer for the 50th Anniversary Special!  While there is no actual footage from the episode, it does give a great look back at previous Doctors and is visually pleasing, in my opinion!


David Tennant on Filming the 50th Anniversary Special

David Tennant recently chatted with EW about the upcoming Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special, where he dispelled rumors that there was some tension between him and his Who successor, Matt Smith.


“I suppose you’d expect me to say we’re new best friends and I love him like a brother,” the Scottish actor tells EW. “But that is sort of how it was. I had a fantastic time and that wouldn’t necessarily have been the case. I’m coming back onto a show that’s effectively somebody else’s show and used to be mine and that’s potentially quite a weird situation to be in. Going back to something I knew so well and had such fun memories of might have backfired. It’s a quite rare set of circumstances: Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig don’t get to play James Bond next to each other. But actually it felt familiar enough that it was like coming home and working with Matt proved to be a real joy. I hope I’m speaking for him when I say we really enjoyed bouncing of each other and playing sort of two aspects of the same character. It was everything that I hoped it might be and nothing that I feared it could be.”

Steven Moffat Discusses Finding the Next Doctor

Entertainment Weekly recently sat down with Steven Moffat where he chats about finding the 12th Doctor.

 So how goes the search for the next Doctor? 

“Well, it’s always just terrifying,” says Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat, who recruited Smith to replace his predecessor, David Tennant, back in late 2008. “If you’re a Doctor Who fan, as I have been all my life, you’ve been doing fantasy casting for this part for as long as you can remember. But when you’re suddenly faced with the reality that you are going to sit there and you are going to make that decision it does feel absolutely chilling. There’s a very big range of people who could play it and different ways you could go with it. We must get this right. One false move and the show’s over.”

And for those of us who are waiting not-so-patiently to find out who the new Doctor will be, Moffat assures us that we won’t have to wait too long after casting has been finalized:

When do you hope to announce the identity of the new Doctor?

“Unless we have an insane plan, we’ll announce a new Doctor within days of finalizing the new Doctor. Because it’s very very hard to keep any kind of a secret. The last time, when we chose Matt, we had to hold over on that one, because there was a Christmas Doctor Whospecial called “The Next Doctor” for which Russell (T. Davies, formerDoctor Who showrunner) was playing the game of pretending it was going to be David Morrissey. So we couldn’t deflate that. [Laughs]. But I think we’ll go public pretty fast.”
