Watched Doctor Who’s Anniversary At Home? You Missed This! [VIDEO]

How did you enjoy The Day of the Doctor? Did you snuggle up at home with convenience food and alcohol, or did you venture out into the cold to enjoy the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special at the cinema?

If you opted for the latter, you will have struck gold with these excellent warnings and guidance films in which Commander Strax and the Eleventh Doctor guide you (separately) on cinema etiquette and wearing Real 3D glasses.

(Yes, we know it’s a bit wonky. And subtitled too. Frankly, we weren’t expecting to have to share them like this. We’re sad these clips didn’t make it onto the new DVD or Blu-ray of The Day of the Doctor…)

    Glad to see the advice about not filming the show worked…’Puny Human Scum! Sontarans rarely smile, except at the death throws of popcorn!’

    I’m sorry The Fiveish Doctors Reboot didn’t get onto the blu-ray but yes the Strax segment was superb especially popcorn and the “tiny screams”

    That was great!

  4. That was cool! Why can’t it be a DVD extra?
    Also, I may never eat popcorn again! ! Tiny screams!!!

    I thought the “budget cut” line was the perfect Doctor Who in joke…………
