BBC America will be airing An Adventure in Time and Space sometime in November, but it's unlikely to be the same night as "The Day of the Doctor."
Thanks

Has anyone heard what BBCA's intention is with An Adventure in Space and Time? Will they air it?
They will definitely be airing An Adventure in Space and Time; as coproducers the network financed the film.

Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)

Well saying the average running time for a DW is episode of the current era is about 45mins (yes some have been longer) but 75mins or so is a reasonable length.

But who knows perhaps the Beeb will release an extend cut of it on BR at a later date. As for other programming is anyone really suprised that the BBC will be doing somesort of theme night/weekend for the show?

Yup. Stranger and stranger still. Ah well, take what you can get and all that.

Still wish it had a few more former Doctors in it. And a few more minutes. And wasn't rewriting Doctor Who history for the sake of 1 episode that will never be mentioned again. And wasn't likely going to end with giant reset button. And...

Given the time they spent filming, an "extended cut" wouldn't add more than a couple minutes. The special was made on a 60-minute budget and schedule, so 75 is already a stretch.

10 minutes of it is Matt Smith poking the Sonic into the camera for the six people watching in 3D.

Finally a reason to have had Colin Baker in the special: his waistline would be its own 3D effect.

NEWS! NEWS! Actual information... no wonder the BBC took the info down right afterwards!

Seriously though, its a lovely pun, the title. I quite like it, as it were.

Anyway, to the discussion at hand, as is now... Well, given that the prequel episodes run at 4-5 minutes, and the fact that there's been a prequel episode filmed for the 50th anniversary, er, I mean The Day Of the Doctor, or at least it was alleged that there was one filmed, you could technically add that into its overall ength, thus it being 80 minutes long.

Which is fine, as I was hoping at least for an hour-long story.

Given Rose's Max Max-ish outfit, it looks like there might be some sort of alternate timeline in play in the story.
Was there a picture of Rose at that link before the BBC removed the page? (Billie Piper in costume, I mean, not her stunt double.)

No. A picture of Matt Smith from earlier in the year. Maybe a picture of Daleks as well.

I heard the news today. Does anyone else think "The Day of the Doctor" is a shit name? Isn't the most exciting name of the bunch.

Day of the Daleks

Day of the Dead

Day of the Triffids

Day of the Jackal.

All fairly exciting films or episodes if you ask me.

Day of the Doctor doesn't quite work so well though. Everyone I've told the title have also thought it sounds dull.

Apart from anything else, I think it works as a logical follow-up to The Name of the Doctor
