For Doctor Who fans, the day has come and gone; The Day of the Doctor, of course. For those of us who are fans, this leaves a gap as we’re forced to wait for the upcoming Christmas special next month. The wait doesn’t have to be entirely Wholess though. I’ve rounded up some videos that surrounded the Whovian 50th anniversary special to share with you. A warning to those who indulge; in the words of Professor River Song, “Spoilers.”
Doctor Who 2013 Christmas Special
First up, there is of course the first TV teaser for the Christmas special.
The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot
Next we have this short (half-hour) film by Peter Davison, well known to series fans as the Fifth Doctor. This is the story of several of the left-out and put-out classic era Doctors in their efforts to get into the 50th anniversary special, and it’s well worth a watch just for the impressive cameo appearances alone.
The Night of the Doctor
This last has been widely circulated, so many of you may have seen it. It’s a 6 minute mini-episode prequel to The Day of the Doctor entitled The Night of the Doctor, and features Paul McGann on screen as the 8th Doctor for only the second time. It is a brilliantly compact short story that leads into the anniversary special really well. If you managed to miss it, it is a must-see.
The Last Day
The Last Day is another short prequel episode set on Gallifrey itself, immediately before the Dalek invasion. It’s short and powerful, and it got a lot less attention than The Night of the Doctor did.
