27th November 2013 saw the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who and what a stormer the episode was. 😀 Whilst the concept of The Doctor meeting himself is not unprecedented the exeuction in this episode was brilliant and full credit goes to Stephen Moffat and the rest of the writers for this excellent episode.
The episode was crammed with references and homages to earlier episodes from both incarnations of the show, and I will certainly be rewinding this to check them out including plenty of references to The Doctor’s earlier encounters with unit.
And to top off what an excellent day they had when the show went live it has been confirmed today by the BBC that 1.27million people wached the show through the iplayer within the first 24 hours, overtaking the record set by the Olympic Opening Ceremony last year. In total 12.8 million people watched the show meaning that it is the most watched drama of the year to date.
All we need now is to jump in the TARDIS and skip to 25 Dec 2013 so we can see the introduction of Peter Capaldi. With the rehash of Whovian history that Stephen Moffat has provided, it must be a special time to be The Doctor (not that it isn’t always but it must be especially so now), with a single firm destination now in mind, but which path to choose, that is the question! Where do you think the Doctor should go?
