Doctor Who first started in the UK on the 23rd November 1963 and ran continually until 1989. (There was a test screening of the pilot episode a week previously in a small area of London but that doesn't count!) Doctor Who continued in the form of books, stage plays, comics, magazines and audio adventures. In 1996 a US/UK co-financed telemovie burst onto our screens. It didn't rate well in the US so a related series was never taken up. 2005 and Russell T Davies got the nod to bring back Doctor Who as a TV series. In 2010 Steven Moffat continued the legacy. Woo hoo!
50th Anniversary 3D HD Cinema Special! Also simulcast to over 75 countries.
Starring Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor, David Tennant and the 10th Doctor and John Hurt as Doctor 8A!
Also starring Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswin Oswald and Billie Piper as Rose Tyler.
The Zygons have set up base on Earth and are planning their full invasion, awaiting arrival of their fleet.
However, there is a greater problem. The edges of the Time War are spilling into this time space continuum, wrecking the normal timeline and bringing about a time cross that will affect the Doctor's entire timeline up until this point.
The 11th Doctor and Clara manage to escape Trazelore via the Doctor's timeline but arrive a little short, ending up near the end of the 10th Doctor and Rose's time together as they try to defeat the Zygons.
Doctor 8A is also there, but not known as the Doctor.
Doctors 10 and 11 run into Doctor 8A and try to work out how to not only fix the timeline and get back to their correct places in space and time, but also defeat the Zygons, the Daleks, the Cybermen, etc.
The problem is, the Zygons keep turning into either other versions of themselves, or other versions of their companions.
What has happened to Clara, what has happened to Rose?
And will the 11th Doctor get a glimpse of his future self?
When will the 50th anniversary special start for you?

An Adventure In
221113 BBC Blurb: This special one-off drama travels back in time to 1963 to see how the beloved Doctor Who was first brought to the screen.
Actor William Hartnell felt trapped by a succession of hard-man roles. Wannabe producer Verity Lambert was frustrated by the TV industry’s glass ceiling. Both of them were to find unlikely hope and unexpected challenges in the form of a Saturday tea-time drama, time travel and monsters!
Allied with a team of brilliant people, they went on to create the longest-running science fiction series ever, now celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Written by Mark Gatiss. Executive produced
by Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner. Directed by Terry McDonough

The Doctor is transporting himself onto ships surrounding a mysterious planet broadcasting an indecipherable message to find out what they know but they're less than helpful.
He makes a deal with the papal mainframe and they get him and Clara to visit the planet below. They discover that the town is called Christmas, but there are many other questions that need to be answered.
What is the message broadcast across all of space and time?
What is the real name of the planet?
And now that the Doctor has used up all his regenerations, will this be where he dies?
Find out in Matt Smith's final appearance as The Doctor in the 2013 Christmas Special.
