The Night Of The Doctor Hits iPlayer Soon!

We’ve just learned that The Night Of The Doctor will be available on BBC iPlayer in less than an hour  and on the BBC YouTube channel shortly after!

The 50th anniversary minisode is currently considered to be some sort of prologue to the main event, The Day of the Doctor, and will also be made available for wider consumption via the Red Button on Saturday.

This marks the second surprise treat for fans from the BBC, following last weekend’s early release of the two promised trailers. We can only assume that the #savetheday campaign is going well!

Let the countdown begin :D
