DOCTOR WHO

The Day Of The Doctor – 50th Anniversary Title Confirmed!

The BBC has finally confirmed the title of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special – and what else could it be than The Day Of The Doctor?

DOCTOR WHO

Revealed as part of a general 50th anniversary announcement, the 75-minute long special is just one part of what’s coming. As Matt Smith says:

Hope you all enjoy. There’s lots more coming your way.

Alongside the special, we’ve also got the following to look forward to:

  • An Adventure in Space and Time by Mark Gatiss and starring David Bradley as William Hartnell.
  • A BBC Two lecture by Professor Brian Cox discussing the pseudo-science behind Doctor Who.
  • BBC Four is running a restored version of An Unearthly Child and the rest of the 100,000 BC serial that kicked off the show back in 1963.
  • BBC Two’s The Culture Show is to screen Me, You and Doctor Who, hosted by lifelong fan Matthew Sweet.
  • A 90-minute documentary on BBC Radio 2 asks Who Is The Doctor?
  • BBC Three will be home to several commissions, including Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide.

Says Danny Cohen, the Director BBC Television:

It’s an astonishing achievement for a drama to reach its 50th anniversary.

I’d like to thank every person – on both sides of the camera – who has been involved with its creative journey over so many years.

Meanwhile, the man in charge has this to say:

50 years has turned Doctor Who from a television show into a cultural landmark. Personally I can’t wait to see what it becomes after a hundred.

Who could argue with that?
