It’s hard to believe that the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who has only been in our rear-view mirror for less than three weeks. It was a great time to be a fan of The Doctor as there seemed to be something new and/or classic on the tube virtually every day. There has been a bit of separation anxiety ever since but, fear not, there’s always Christmas and the annual Doctor Who Christmas episode.
This year takes on a bit more importance as fans will ‘officially’ say goodbye to Matt Smith, who ends his tenure as the Eleventh Doctor, and hello to Peter Capaldi, the incoming Twelfth Doctor who will make his official debut in the Christmas and then return in late 2014 for his first full season as The Doctor. In this years Christmas episode, The Doctor must sacrifice everything to save a town called Christmas from the Time Lord’s greatest enemies. A change is going to come, and Silence will fall. This promises to be one not to be missed. Think about it. Besides a regeneration, it has Daleks, Cybermen, the Weeping Angels AND the Silence. This is going to be Doctor Who greatness.
‘The Time of the Doctor’ will air on Christmas Day at 7.30pm on BBC One, and then air in the US at 9/8c on BBC America. Tip: If you’re in the States, stay off Twitter and Facebook from around 2:30p-8:00p Christmas Day. Just trust me on this one.
