Sonic screwdrivers at the ready. The sci-fi show’s 50th anniversary celebrations reach their peak with this epic adventure that brings together Matt Smith’s Time Lord and his predecessor David Tennant – and throws veteran actor John Hurt into the mix as a third Doctor, who was first glimpsed at the end of the last series. The story begins with three separate plots, as something terrible awakes in London’s National Gallery in 2013, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England and an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion somewhere out in space. As these strands draw together, all of reality is at stake – and the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him. The cast also includes Billie Piper, returning as Rose Tyler, alongside current companion Clara, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, plus Jemma Redgrave, Joanna Page and Ingrid Oliver.
Well, after so many days of waiting, I watched tonight another fabulous tribute to that 50 years old show, where for the first time, all the doctors, 13 of them, changed history. Gallifrey falls no more !
Steven Moffat, Nick Hurran and all the actors did a great job. Many thanks to them from a brand new Whovian. You know what? I have to watch it again …
Just to make us dream until Christmas, here is The Time Of The Doctor’s teaser:
