Yeah, I got to agree. A special trailer that doesn't actually include any footage seems a stupid thing to do, given two separate trailers with footage exist.
Its nothing special, really. How many of those exist on YT, anyway? How many did the fans make on their own - and in excellent a manner, too?

Finally, why make it such a big deal, other than to continue trolling the fans that are still waiting for the bleedin' trailer? Which is, like, all of them?

Really, bravo to the fans that were on the San Diego con and didn't leak it, but this is getting to be annoying on behalf of the Beeb. And I'm not mad about this - its just a logical assessment of this stupid situation.

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

According to the press release, this footage-less trailer is one minute long. I assume it'll be a retrospective. It's short enough to serve as the "prologue" to a normal 2-minute trailer. Just cut them together so we get sort of a past/future thing, with Matt Smith's voice or John Hurt's voice providing the bridge transitioning to the actual 50th footage.

That would be awesome. And I'm sure someone will do it on Youtube after the fact, showing the BBC what they should've been doing all along.

Damn, I shouldn't have doubted my source and added the "or maybe not" yesterday!

a one minute trailer of 11 HD Doctors... Allowing time for a logo etc that's a maximum of about 4 seconds each...

Nice artwork but what's the point of announcing yet another footage-free trailer?

Well, at least we won't have been spoiled for the damn thing before we even get to see it, as can happen with trailers. Anyway, I actually think a retrospective of the older Docs will be nice.

Thing is, that trailer showed at Comic Con didn't have any spoilers, otherwise that would have spread like wildfire online. Yeah, I know Moffat threatened to throw a hissy fit if the trailer leaked, but several websites have written up descriptions and that doesn't seem to have awakened the beast. And the most spoilerific thing there is the implication that John Hurt's Doctor was involved with the Time War, which many of us were already guessing anyway.

^ I'm not against seeing a trailer with clips, I'm just trying to see the positive in the current approach. But even if there at no specific spoilers in the trailer, I am kinda looking forward to seeing such an event episode and having seen so little of the footage. (Though if the footage was out there, I'd long ago have viewed it all!)

The BBC is clearly working to a plan, and that plan is meant to heighten interest without it peaking before the 23rd. We've had the first teaser, we're getting a second teaser, we've just had the SFX article (though I think that should have come after a trailer with footage).

My guess is trailer in two weeks, around the 1st.

I actually think it'll be released at October 22 - just a month away. But November 1st sounds like a safer bet.

In any case, I don't think that teaser should even count as such. A hashtag does not a teaser make.

Exactly. Now if we had gotten brief flashes of things, or audio with a few words from the show itself, it would qualify as a teaser.

Yeah, we were just talking about that - it's an anniversary trailer with clips/shots of all eleven Doctors, but not from the anniversary special.

So, when they do show something actual of the Special, will the trailer state "The Story can finally be told" in regards to HurtDoctor and The Time War

Since the BBC still won't advertise it, here's some leaked behind-the-scenes photos from the episode:

I LOL'ed to the first pic. Lovely!

And the second pic is intriguing... could be refering to the "paintings" that Matt Smith mentioned?
