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

Can anyone identify the man with his back to us immediately in front of the Eleventh Doctor?

Could it be John Hurt?

io9 has posted a closer look at the trailer and points out some of the harder to catch references.

I caught most of these but I'm embarssed about missing the Polyphase Avatron reference. I recognized it but for the life of me I couldn't place it.
That's what I was wondering about earlier, next to the assembled Key To Time. I didn't recognize it at all

I'm personally glad we don't know more.

We already know John Hurt is in it as a shamed and dis-acknowledged Doctor, probably from the Time War's nastiest period.

We know there's Zygons and Daleks in it.

We know Kate Stewart is in it, as is Rose, 10, 11 and Clara.

I'm just not understanding not only the desire to know even more, but, actual outrage expressed by not being fed even more.

This must have passed me by but 'Doctor Who TV' have mentioned that actor Ankur Sengupta has listed on his CV two roles; one a UNIT solider, and the other an Arcadian refugee in the 50th. So are we going to see the "Fall of Arcadia" on the 23rd?

This. It was a lovely reminder of how good the last 50 years have been and what it is we're celebrating. An appetite-whetter.

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

I'd heard one or two people complain about what had been left out; for a one minute trailer it referenced a lot, but still, that was only a fraction of the stuff we've seen over the last fifty years. And that's why I love this trailer; it reminds me just how vast Doctor Who really is. If that makes sense.

Also:

"Our future depends on one single moment of one impossible day."

I'm probably over thinking this, but I assume that's a reference to the "moment". The one the Doctor used to end the Time War with.

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

Has anyone wondered how much the trailer cost?

There's no footage from the episode, so everything in it was new. There's a lot of CG work in it, and some things about it suggest that it was composed with 3-D in mind.

Six figures?

Complaining about stuff left out of a one minute trailer covering 50 years is just silly.

Though I will say its a shame there wasn't a Brigadier reference in there somewhere.

Unless of course that was his face carved into the mountain under Elevens feet.

While not outraged, and satisfied that we at least got some new material yesterday, as I've stated many times before, there's already been 2 trailers to this that have shown footage. I want to see at least what the Comic Con people did. Footage. Is that too much to ask? I don't think so.

Every episode gets a 30-second promo, every movie that comes out in the theatre gets a trailer. I want a trailer for the 50th.

I agree, but at the same time I'm not letting that bother me too much since most companions were left out of this. Were there even any aside from Sara Jane, Clara, and Rose?

K-9 is at Sarah Jane's feet, and apparently the top of Amy's head is visible over the Ninth Doctor's shoulder.

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

Which has got me thinking. Would anyone be against K9 working with the 12th doctor?

I don't know if it would be more technically demanding(more time to set up filming) or not that difficult.

The thing is just remote controlled. It's not like having an actor in silurian makeup as a regular.

Maybe in small doses, sure. An episode here or there. There's material to be mined there, since we haven't seen K-9 in about 4 years. I'd like to see Clara's reaction to a robot dog, and it would be nice if Capaldi's doctor went on a spree digging out a bunch of old stuff in the TARDIS and fixed it, etc.

Yeah, definately a one shot guest appearance. From the sound if it, they're going with as more serious tone with Twelve, so a robot dog probably wouldn't fit in.

Maybe they could even work in a guest spot with the rest of the SJA crew.
