Re: Official BBC Tweet (SPOILERS)

Why are they shooting this in 3D? Are there that many people in the UK that have 3D televisions in their homes? Or is this going to be shown in theaters first?

The BBC bought 3D cameras and has to use them for something.

No.

It'll also be in theaters; I don't know about "first."

Honestly, I'm more excited by the news that John Hurt is going to be guest starring (honestly, did anyone think David Tennant wouldn't return?)! The man is an acting god and has shown up in just about everything at this point.
Yeah if Tennant hadn't been back that would have been shocking.

I wonder if John Hurt will be playing a dragon

Cool! That looks like it might be JLC coming into the picture on the right. And on the left, is that the tip of a Dalek gun??

I hope he reprises his role as The Storyteller and in the special he tells the story of the Doctors to his dog.

Either that, or he plays a classmate of Susan's from Coal Hill School, 1963, and somehow his life keeps crossing the Doctor's into the present day.

Do people still think this story will reference anything pre-2005 (in anything beyond the most general and cursory terms)?

Awesome pic. I was starting to get a bit bummed at the likelihood of not seeing any other Docs in the special, but now I'm thinking just seeing those two together would be more than enough.

One could hope.

It's a bit too pixelated to be sure, but it looks to me like the title on the page is "The Anniversary Special." It is definitely a three word title -- one short, one long, and one in-between.

And, per Ed Russell, that's JLC reaching for the water bottle and the nozzle of a Dalek gun on the left hand side of the picture.

I honestly think it will. And, it had better. Major FAIL if it doesn't. Not much of a 50th Anniversary if it forgets the majority of those years! However, I don't think the viewer will need to know the history in order to follow the plot.

Umbrella, I think.

Mr Awe
Edward Russell has tweeted it is indeed a Dalek gun.

Well Matt Smith already said that the special celebrates the entire history of DW, but my guess is it does that through other means than by having the actual Doctors in it.
