"Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame."
-- The Doctor ("the one who broke the promise")
I don't know what stokes me most about "The Day of the Doctor": seeing the Time War at last in all its horrific glory, the return of the Tenth Doctor and Rose, the interaction between Matt Smith and David Tennant's Doctors, Daleks attacking and getting 'sploded, the return of the Zygons...
Okay, no doubt about it: John Hurt as The Doctor that we didn't know about. The one that whatever it is that he did, The Doctor was so ashamed that he has never acknowledged his existence... until now. Because I really believe that this Doctor is the reason that The Doctor, in his ensuing generations, has been such a haunted and wounded man beneath the jovial, childlike surface.

EDIT 6:34 p.m. EST: Awright, how did I miss this one?! It's only been up since about three weeks ago!
Here is the "50 Years" trailer that the BBC released for the fiftieth anniversary special. And it it is truly, in every possible way, epic...
The day The Doctor has been running from all his life comes November 23rd.
