We’re just over a month away from the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary episode, and while this teaser doesn’t give us any footage from “The Day of the Doctor,” it does celebrate the history of Doctor Who.
This specially-shot teaser trailer for the episode certainly plays up the idea of the Doctor’s entire history leading up to one particular point in time: “The Day of the Doctor.” Showcasing old favorites like Willam Hartnell and Tom Baker with retouching to make them high definition, the trailer shows all of the Doctors so far (though some are tricky to spot) and references the “impossible day” that will come in the special episode. Perhaps this impossibility is the Doctor meeting himself, though for something that’s not so supposed to happen at all this does occur quite a lot.
Clara also makes an important appearance in the trailer, once again tying this episode to her actions in the season 7 finale, and there’s a glimpse of Rose Tyler around the same time that the Ninth Doctor comes into view, which is quite appropriate. Billie Piper will reprise her role as the first companion of the new series in the special episode, and we suspect that there might be a few surprises in store that the BBC has managed to keep under wraps so far.
The program will be simulcast in the U.S. and UK and 75 countries on November 23.
