‘Doctor Who’ 50th Anniversary Photos: Rose Tyler and More Return for “The Day of the Doctor”
Following the impressive trailer from this past weekend, ‘Doctor Who‘ has lifted its airtight content policy, delivering a new round of photos for the November 23 50th anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor.” The latest look at the landmark ‘Doctor Who’ event features Billie Piper’s return as Rose Tyler, the dastardly Zygons and more in brand-spanking new photos!
In addition to better looks at David Tennant and Matt Smith together as the 10th and 11th Doctors (no doubt a highlight of the special) we also see that the returning Rose Tyler has some kind of unique connection to John Hurt’s “Dark Doctor,” looking a bit more feral than the Rose we’d come to know. Also on display is, of course, the lovely Jenna-Louise Coleman’s Clara (and motorcycle!), as well as the big flying TARDIS set piece photographed many months ago.
Says the BBC of the upcoming special:
The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th anniversary special. In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.
Meanwhile, the BBC will release two short minisodes in anticipation of the landmark anniversary event, titled “The Last Day” and “The Night of the Doctor,” respectfully. Their content and release dates have been kept under wraps, though it’s been speculated one may be released this Friday during the annual ‘Children in Need’ telethon, as had been suggested previously.
Elsewhere, November 23 will also see the airing of a special by Professor Brian Cox on BBC Two about the science behind the show, coupled with ‘Sherlock‘ star Mark Gatiss’ ‘Doctor Who’ origins movie, ‘An Adventure in Space and Time.’ “The Day of the Doctor” itself will also be simulcast globally, and released in select US theaters for a 3D broadcast.
