BBC Confirms The Day Of The Doctor Scheduling

How will you be enjoying The Day Of The Doctor? If you’re watching it on TV rather than at the cinema, you’ll be happy to learn that the BBC has confirmed the time slot!

Prepare your costumes, snacks and drinks for a 7.50pm kick off on BBC One on 23 November at with the adventure concluding at 9.05pm!

The 75 minute episode promises to answer a few questions raised in Doctor Who over the past few years, as well – if the trailers are anything to go by – take us into the Time War!

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.

So, that’s 7.50pm on November 23rd. What else could you possibly be doing?

    Wait, so there’s a different time for the cinema? But I thought it was being simulcast? So shouldn’t the cinema timings be the same?

    • cinemas start 7.45, apparently…

        Some are saying even earlier. That’s because cinemas usually have varying amount of advertisements and trailers to show. I’m in Canada but I attended a movie in Cardiff, Wales once where midway through the adverts they ran a charity appeal and then spent 10 minutes collecting donations from the audience before the movie actually began.
