Doctor Who: Explaining the Awesome New Trailer for "The Day of the Doctor"
This weekend the BBC finally released a trailer for the 50th Anniversary special, "The Day of the Doctor." It's not the full trailer, unfortunately. You won't be seeing any footage from the special in the video above, but it does offer a remarkable look at the half-century history of The Doctor.
It's also completely full of amazing little tributes to the show, and we decided to explore them by going frame by frame through the trailer pointing of each and every reference we could find. Enjoy having the whole thing explained.
This is 76 Totter's Ln, a junk yard owned by I.M. Foreman which is where the First Doctor hid the Tardis when he first came to Earth with his granddaughter Susan and where the first serial, "An Unearthly Child" begins. The Sixth Doctor returned there to answer a distress call in "Attack of the Cybermen" and the Seventh in order to retrieve the Hand of Omega in "Remembrance of the Daleks." We will see it once again in the 50th Anniversary Special.
The policeman from the opening, played by Reg Cranfield, was the first person to ever appear on Doctor Who.
