Paul McGann returns as The Doctor

As an avid Doctor Who fan the 23rd of November is a date that the whovian world and I are getting very excited about with the 50th Anniversary episode debuting worldwide.

Whilst we wait for The Day of the Doctor the BBC have been treating the fans to a number of treats including sneak peaks, trailers, documentaries but the fun has only just begun.

Since the series 7 finale the world of Doctor Who fans have been asking one question, “Who is John Hurt playing?”, the mysterious character introduced in the last few seconds of the finale episode as the Doctor. But which Doctor? Now we have the answer..

The BBC have release a mini-episode which acts as a prequel to The Day of the Doctor called The Night of the Doctor. The one off special not only answers the question everyone has been asking for so many months now, ending the speculation but also sees Paul McGann reprise the role of the 8th Doctor for the first time on screen since the 1996 TV movie.

Without giving up too many spoilers The Night of the Doctor is full >of nods to Doctor Who fans, reintroducing The Sisterhood of Karn from the 1976 serial The Brain of Morbius and features references to the eighth Doctor’s adventures in Big Finish’s series of audio plays.

McGann famously claimed that he was not a part of Doctor Who’s 50th celebrations, claiming that he was “gutted” not to be invited back to the series, possibly to throw people off the scent which is something show-runner Moffat is famous for.

The Day of the Doctor, the long awaited 50th Anniversary feature length special will debut on Saturday, November 23 at 7.50pm on BBC One. It will also be simulcast globally and screened in cinemas worldwide.
