Doctor Who Magazine Special: The Year of the Doctor
Researched and compiled by the ever-reliable Andrew Pixley, this guide takes readers behind the scenes on arguably the most important year for Doctor Who so far. The 100-page special is chock-full of previously unpublished photos; day-to-day details from writing to casting announcement, filming to post-production; ratings; full cast and crew listings; and hundreds of fascinating facts.
The Year of the Doctor covers the 50th Anniversary Special The Day of the Doctor; the Eighth Doctor minisode The Night of the Doctor; Matt Smith’s final story The Time of Doctor; the drama based on the origins of Who, An Adventure in Space and Time; the hilarious The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot; Doctor Who at the Proms 2013; the Brian Cox lecture The Science of Doctor Who; BBC3′s Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide; CBBC’s Me, You and Doctor Who; Doctor Who Live: The Afterparty (which should be… interesting), and then some!
Actually, isn’t it odd that the 50th anniversary DVD and Blu-ray collections reportedly don’t include Me, You and Doctor Who?
This, sadly, is the last Special Edition to focus on the Matt Smith era of Doctor Who.
