BBC has unveiled a 50th anniversary trailer for its upcoming Doctor Who special. It features all of the Doctor’s incarnations (and a selection of his friends and foes). Fans will be able to enjoy many familiar faces in this one-minute look at the classic television series.
BBC has definitely lined up one hell of a tribute to commemorate the anniversary. On November 23rd, BBC One will air The Day Of The Doctor, a 75-minute movie starring exiting Time Lord Matt Smith, as well as Doctor Who No. 10 David Tennant, along with John Hurt, Jenna Coleman and Billie Piper. It will also air in the U.S. on BBC America that same night.

Thanks to Deadline:
…a separate film, An Adventure In Space And Time, which stars David Bradley as William Hartnell, who played the first Doctor in 1963. Brian Cox, Jessica Raine and Sacha Dhawan also feature. That special will air on BBC Two which is also playing host to a one-hour look at the science behind the show, as well as an examination of the Time Lord’s cultural significance in Me, You And Doctor Who. BBC Three is running a countdown to the top Doctor Who monster of all time and, for folks less familiar with the show, will air Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide. Over on BBC Four, the first four episodes of the original series will be shown in a restored format. The BBC is also aiming to pique kids’ interest with specials on CBBC and a contest on Blue Peter to give viewers aged 6-14 the chance to design a new gadget that will become part of the series. There are also Doctor Who-themed programs planned across all of BBC radio in November…
