Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)
I think it's that the BBC publicity department are a bit like the fans: they simply can't believe that there isn't more being made for the anniversary, so they're going ahead with a big publicity campaign, pre-announcing trailers etc, even though they then find they don't have anything to deliver... "What do you mean we can't include a subliminal shot of Tom Baker? Tom Baker has got to be in it, you can't have left him out! Please, just a half second teaser glimpse of him..."
"Some days are better than others. They say that where I come from."
"Loudly, I imagine, on the day you left."
