Celebrate The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!

The Day of the Doctor Official Synopsis!

The 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor, airs this month. (I know! This month!)

Starring Matt Smith and David Tennant as Doctors Eleven and Ten, Jenna Coleman as Clara, Billie Piper as Rose and John Hurt as… someone, here’s the official synopsis:

The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th anniversary special.


In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.


Written by Steven Moffat


Directed by Nick Hurran


Executive produced by Steven Moffat and Faith Penhale


Produced by Marcus Wilson

It certainly ties in with some of the hints we’ve heard (though I won’t detail them here, in case spoilerphobes never trust me again – so if you want to find out, search Kasterborous!). Hurran’s a stunning director, having helmed beautiful episodes like The Girl Who Waited and The Angels Take Manhattan.

Anyone else getting really excited now?!


When he’s not watching television, reading books ‘n’ Marvel comics, listening to The Killers, and obsessing over script ideas, Philip Bates (Kasterborous' former Editor) pretends to be a freelance writer. He enjoys collecting everything. He is the co-founder of The Doctor Who Companion: http://thedoctorwhocompanion.com/
