On Sep. 12 Latinos Post shared a new poster for the upcoming 50th anniversary special of "Dr. Who" which will begin in November. The new poster shows the past three regenerations of the doctor: Matt Smith, David Tennant, and John Hurt.
The 75- minute anniversary special is being called "The Day of the Doctor" and will show what circumstances brought past and present Time Lords together. Hurt's character is going to be as a older, darker version of the current doctor played by Matt Smith who is currently Doctor number 11. David Tennant is Doctor number 10, so fans shouldn't expect there to be a significant gap in the doctors, except that Hurt isn't going to be doctor number 12. It was recently announced that Peter Capaldi is going to be soon replacing Smith as regeneration 12.
This is going to be one of the last few episodes featuring Matt Smith as Doctor. Co-stars Jenna Coleman and Billie Piper will also make an appearance in the anniversary special. The anniversary special is going to be followed by a Christmas episode in which Capaldi will officially be introduced as the 12 incarnation of the Doctor.
The anniversary special of "Dr. Who" will air on the BBC America channel on Nov. 23. Will you be watching?
