Let’s get one thing straight before we go any further, John Hurt is not the name of the Doctor. I’m referring to all those people who tweeted that John Hurt was the Doctor’s name at the end of The Name of the Doctor. Phew, now we’ve got that out of the way we can carry on.
After waiting nearly six months since the last instalment of Doctor Who, the BBC has released a trailer marking 50 years of the show.
Between 2008-2009 Doctor Who had a hiatus of sorts. Instead of a full series there were several specials that saw the Doctor (David Tennant) travelling without a regular companion.
This is David Tennant’s last full series as the Doctor before he decided to leave and become a hard-bitten cop on Broadchurch and play Hamlet alongside Patrick Stewart a.ka. Star Trek’s Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
