The BBC has issued a press release detailing a very special trailer, which is to be broadcast on BBC One tonight at approximately 8.20pm – after Strictly Come Dancing and just before Atlantis. The trailer will be available to watch on the official Doctor Who website, immediately after its BBC One premiere.
The press release reads:
A specially created trailer celebrating the last 50 years of Doctor Who will air tonight on BBC One, as an exclusive image is revealed today featuring the 11 Doctors. Travelling through time fans will be taken on a journey from the very beginning using state of the art technology. The special trailer is set to show all of the Doctors as they first appeared on screen, including William Hartnell in high res colour for the very first time, as celebrations ramp up to the 23 November. A huge moment for the BBC, the 50th celebrations will culminate with the special episode, ‘The Day of the Doctor’, starring Matt Smith, David Tennant and Jenna Coleman with Billie Piper and John Hurt. A whole range of shows have also been commissioned across TV and radio to mark the anniversary.
While its great to see the BBC finally starting to mark the occasion, the trailer does not include any actual footage of the 50th anniversary episode, which will no doubt leave some fans upset.
