Doctor Who is legendary as a long-running sci-fi series, and the show has all the convoluted continuity you’d expect from a show about to celebrate its 50th anniversary. That special day will be commemorated next week with a new special episode, called The Day of the Doctor. But it is preceded today by The Night of the Doctor, a six-minute short that sets up a very important part of the storyline.

Even if you don’t know Doctor Who this is a neat short. If you do know the show — I mean if you really know and follow the series, going back years — this will act as total continuity porn, because it ties up a long-running mystery embedded between incarnations of the series. Watch it below, and stick around for a thorough explanation of just what the hell is going on here. Read More »

“I’ve had many faces, many lives,” says Matt Smith’s Doctor at the beginning of the new trailer for the Doctor Who anniversary special The Day of the Doctor, “but there’s one I’ve tried very hard to forget.” That one, this trailer suggests, is played by John Hurt, who appeared at the end of ‘Name of the Doctor,’ the final episode of the show’s most recent season.

This trailer for the show’s 50th anniversary special is huge, with a lot of effects and a scope that seems worthy of the Doctor’s birthday. In addition to Smith, we’ll see Jenna Coleman, David Tennant, Billie Piper and quite a bit of John Hurt. This is also among Smith’s final episodes in the role, as Peter Capaldi will take over as the twelfth Doctor after the 2013 Christmas Special.
