SDCC 2013: Doctor Who 50th anniversary trailer description

doctorwho 3

BBC and Doctor Who headwriter Steven Moffat was kind enough to share with the audience at Comic-Con the 50th Anniversary trailer. He made us promise not to leak it but we could report what we did see, but no audio or video of it must be shown online. Sorry, guys.

They will be releasing it sometime soon.

The trailer begins with a similar feeling to the end of the last episode The Name of the Doctor where we see Smith walking in the TARDIS.

“I’ve had many faces. Many lives. I don’t admit to all of them. There’s one life I’ve tried… very hard to forget.”

Then we see the Doctor and Clara.

Then what looks like the Time War – Daleks flying “EXTERMINATE” and Time Lords. (So we know this special is to explain the Time War, finally.)


John Hurt’s face appears and says “Great men are forged in fire… and they must never light the flame.

Then we hear “GERONIMO” followed by “ALLONS-Y”!

Then we see and hear Rose “the moment is coming.” Followed by Hurt saying “I’m ready.

Then the two Doctors comparing sonic screwdrivers!!!

Then you see them getting along with both wearing glasses (Smith with his FEZ).

Then we see Rose looking excited!

Then we see the scene where the TARDIS being airlifted (probably by UNIT) with the Doctor hanging from it.

Then Smith in the TARDIS saying “I remember this. I pretty much remember.”

We see Tennant walking around inside the TARDIS saying “Oh, you’ve redecorated… I don’t like it.” (Homage to the Three Doctor) – then you see Smith’s face dissatisfied.

We see them copying the same moves – crossing their legs at the same time and sitting next to each other arms folded. CUTE.

TITLE: This fall, the Doctor will face his darkest day: Himself”

Then we see Zygons busting out of glass. Then Daleks blown up.

Then inside the TARDIS – Tennant asking Smith “For once, I’d like to know, where I’m going.” Smith responds: “No, you really wouldn’t.”

Then you hear Strax (off-screen) saying: “I’m looking for the Doctor” to Tennant, Smith and Hurt. Tennant says, “Well, you’ve certainly come to the right place. “

Then 23.11.13!!!

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary will air on November 23rd, 2013.


Tennant’s Doctor’s hair is not as fluffy as it used to be. It looks kinda emo, but I guess the Doctor has many looks. Rose also looks dolled up – different from the rugged Rose we’re used to seeing. So we know it’s not Human 10th Doctor and Rose but the REAL Doctor and his Rose.
