Beware! There be minor spoilers ahead!
Honestly, don’t worry too much. A latest batch of photos has surfaced online and features what some people may call spoilers – but really, there’s very little that hasn’t already been at least strongly hinted at. So those who don’t want to know anything about The Day of the Doctor, look away now.
The majority of the photos star (presumably) the main enemy of the 50th anniversary special, the Daleks, in various states of disarray. One partly-exploded Dalek – frozen in time? – looks awesome, as does the army of three Daleks against a backdrop emblazoned with Gallifreyan symbols.
There’s also a creepy Zygon, seemingly reading the daily newspaper.
Impressively, not many spoilers have crept out about the 75-minute episode, which will screen next month. But one thing Matt Smith has let slip out is:
“Paintings. That’s all I’m saying.”
One of the photos certainly seems to back this up: a picture of Tenth Doctor, David Tennant, surely accompanied with the text from another photo:
“Placed into the care of my Government and future Governments to come, Until such a time as the Under Gallery is endangered, when it shall be presented to The Doctor.”
The Tenth and Eleventh Doctors are confirmed as appearing in The Day of the Doctor, but it’s rumoured that Doctor Five and Eight (Peter Davison and Paul McGann, respectively) will also make cameos. Davison has even stated that he’s got a copy of the script with his name embossed on it… and, typically, only cast appearing in the episode get that!
Anyone else getting really excited now?
