The Night of the Doctor: 50th Anniversary Mini-Episode!

A prequel to next weekend's 50th anniversary special, "The Day of the Doctor", has been broadcast!  Called "The Night of the Doctor", it shows a familiar face transitioning into something -- or rather, someone -- he'd rather spend the remainder of his lives forgetting about.

"Day of the Doctor" Mini-Episode Confirmed

According to, we may get to see a mini-episode teaser in the run-up to this month's fiftieth anniversary episode of Doctor Who, "The Day of the Doctor".
While we knew we were going to get an initial Day of the Doctor treat at the upcoming Children in Need event, we now have a little more inclination as to what we might be seeing. According to information on the BBFC web site, two different minisodes have been classified and attached to the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release of the 50th anniversary special: The Last Day and The Night of the Doctor.

The Last Day is slated to run just shy of 4 minutes and has no additional information attached to the description (although, Time War anyone?). The Night of the Doctor is set to run for almost 7 minutes and features David Tennant and Matt Smith (Note: at the time of writing, the BBFC page for this mini-sode has gone dark… Coincidence? I think not! Head to Who-natic to see the page before it was pulled). It’s anyone’s guess at this point as to what the minisodes will actually contain, but with only 11 days until Children in Need and 19 until the 50th, the wait is almost over!

'Day of the Doctor' to Screen in American Movie Theaters!

I'm typing on my aunt's computer this afternoon while I'm over here washing laundry.  With any luck, my next paycheck (two weeks from today) will be enough for me to get a new power supply unit for my computer.  The old one is 400-watt and probably gave out finally trying to power my monster graphics card.  I really, really don't want the problem to be anything other than simply needing a new power unit.  If something broke in the C-drive, then my computer is well and truly dead.  UGH.

Anyway, it seems that the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who, "The Day of the Doctor", is screening in select movie theaters stateside.
“Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor” will screen in select movie theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta and Minneapolis Nov. 23 in RealD 3D, coinciding with a worldwide simulcast of the special in 75 countries, including the U.S.

Yes, this event is going to be that big.  I just hope I'm able to see this when it airs.  SQUEEEE!
