The BBC Media Centre have released TV programme information for the week starting 23rd November – and the information includes the first official synopsis for Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor, which you can read below:
WARNING: The synopsis contains mild spoilers that some may want to avoid.
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.
The Day of the Doctor airs worldwide, on TV and in cinemas, on Saturday 23rd November. The official time for the simulcast will be revealed later this week or early next week.
