Doctor Who fans don't stop to talk about the 50th anniversary special "The Day of the Doctor", and for good reason : the BBC revealed finally pictures and videos from the long awaited episode.

On 19 October, several weeks after revealing that David Tennant, Billie Piper and John Hurt will star in the special, the BBC offered us a 50th year trailer, showing the eleven Doctors and some of their enemies and companions, and in which the Eleventh Doctor said :
"Our future depends on one single moment, of one impossible day, the day I have been running from all my life, the Day of the Doctor."

But no real scene or something from the special was in the 50th trailer. But since 16 October we discover the first photos of the special in the Facebook page for Doctor Who, whose by example the Tenth Doctor in the old TARDIS (Allons-y !).

Later, Matt Smith celebrated his 31st birthday (on October 28). And on 4 November the BBC reveals the official short synopsis for the episode :"The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th anniversary special. In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him."

Then, a new website has been opened for the hashtag #SaveTheDay. More there are posts with #SaveTheDay on Facebook posts, Google+ posts and tweets on Twitter, much a gold TARDIS will be revealed in 3D, whose the posts are on this TARDIS, and so the 5 sneak previews will be revealed to Doctor Who fans.
But some people have managed to unlock the first sneak preview using the website's source code (available here). 10 seconds with the Doctor and Clara watching a painting ... of Gallifrey in flames. By the way the video shows a girl, Oswood, wearing Fourth Doctor's iconic scarf.

Finally, on 8 and 9 November, we saw the two first TV trailer for "The Day of the Doctor", including scenes of the special.

The two videos have in total at least 5 million viewers, proving that we can't wait for watching the episode. And by the way, see that in the second trailer it shows a funny scene showing the Tenth Doctor discovering Eleventh's TARDIS and saying "Oh, you've redecorated ! I don't like it." These are the same words the Eleventh said to Craig Owens when he discovered Craig's new house in "Closing Time" (series 6, episode 12).

Meanwhile, new photos from the special have been released. You can see them in Doctor Who's and DEwil's Facebook pages, and also in David Tennant News blog.

As Rose Tyler said, "the moment is coming". So be ready for 23 November. Like the Doctor we hope you'll reveal the sneak previews with the hashtag #SaveTheDay, and that you'll enjoy the special, on BBC One, France 4 and other TV channels which will broadcast it.

Allons-y, Geronimo !
