The ruins of the Time Lord Citadel on Gallifrey

Nick Briggs on 50th: Explosive!

Are we on the verge of getting to see the oft’ referred to Time War?

The ruins of the Time Lord Citadel on Gallifrey

Speaking to ZoneOneRadio, the Voice of the Daleks himself, Nicholas Briggs, indicated that we’re in for a very explosive 50th Anniversary special!

“There were some big, big explosions. The biggest explosions I’ve ever seen on Doctor Who when they were shooting the bits with the Daleks. And I suddenly got a feeling of what it might be like to be in a warzone!”

Given the bits and pieces we’ve been shown about the upcoming special, it certainly seems everyone’s favorite villain is in a bit of trouble! The big question raised is what sort of trouble are the Daleks in? Rumors surrounding just who John Hurt’s Doctor is has led to speculation that he may actually be the Doctor that ended the Time War.

If those rumors prove true, could we be seeing a major Time War battle with the Daleks in the 50th? Or are we seeing Dalek devastation at the hands of the Zygons or the “trinity” of Doctors?

Maybe an official trailer could help shed some light…


“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.
