Someone mentioned supporting programming... anyone care to fill in the details for those who missed the amazing self-destructing press release?
Thankfully, i09 copied out the key section:
Other highlights include a BBC Two lecture by Professor Brian Cox on the science behind the hit show and the drama An Adventure In Space and Time, written by Mark Gatiss. The one-off programme stars David Bradley, of the Harry Potter films, as William Hartnell – who was the first Doctor in 1963.

BBC Four will introduce new audiences to Hartnell, with a re-run of the first ever story. The four episodes are being shown in a restored format, not previously broadcast in the UK.

BBC Two’s flagship arts programme The Culture Show is to present Me, You and Doctor Who, with lifelong fan Matthew Sweet exploring the cultural significance of the BBC’s longest running TV drama.

A 90-minute documentary on BBC Radio 2 will ask “Who Is The Doctor?” – using newly-recorded interviews and exclusive archive material to find an answer – while BBC Three will be home to several commissions.
There may have been a bit more, but I'm not sure.

Edit: there was a bit more:
For those less familiar with the show, Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide will provide a handy primer.
Egg, I dreamed I was old.
