Doctor Who 50th Anniversary


I love the special!!


I really don’t know how to write this review…so many surprises!! so many intertwine stories!! too many Doctors!! too many WOW moment…simply said I love it but wrong review will give HUGE spoiler.

I think I should start with a big applause to Steven Moffat … one genius writer who makes magic happens. In case you don’t know who he is, he is the mastermind of Sherlock and Doctor Who…he has amazing imagination. I wouldn’t say he is my favorite Doctor Who’s writer because sometime the best episode in a series of Doctor Who didn’t come from him but he also has some of my favorite Doctor Who’s episode, like Blink and Empty Child.

Moffat has amazingly connected three Doctors into one. I love the way he made the three of them met. I wish I can write how but let’s just say they met 😉

All whovian should watch the mini episodes first

There’s a new Doctor in between the eight and the nine Doctor, this Doctor is played by John Hurt…he is the war Doctor, the Doctor who burned Gallifrey and everyone in it in order to stop the war.

There’s a glitch in time paradox caused by something (can’t say what) and it made The Tenth Doctor (David Tennant), The Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) and the Warrior (John Hurt) met. They fought Zygon, a shapeshifter alien…but Zygon was not the main problem here…something more important was at stake.

For the story, I can only say that. I don;t want to spoil it for all the whovian out there…although my only Whovian companion in my blogosphere are only Miyuki and Jason…but still I like to keep everything in the dark because the beauty of seeing this 50th anniversary special is in the fact that we don’t know anything about it.

I wish I can say something about the ending!!!

Ahhhh my tongue is itchy, dying to say it. My fingers are equally itchy, dying to type it!!

This is not my best review of Doctor Who…but be it as the worst review because there’s no way I am going to spoil one of the anniversary special of one of the best TV series in the world…through time and space 😉

…however!! I do have a bit of disappointment, it’s on the fact that she isn’t Rose (whovian would know this) I wish she was Rose, I want to know how Eleventh feels when he meets her again.

This might sound like a spoiler but what the hell…I love this quote and I am risking a spoiler for the love I have on the quote 🙂

Clara sometimes asks me if I dream. “of course I dream” I tell her, “everybody dreams”. “But what do you dream about?” she’ll ask. “The same thing everyone dreams about,” I tell her, “I dream about where I am going”. She always laugh at that, “but you’re not going anywhere – you’re just wondering about”. That’s not true. Not anymore. I have a new destination. My journey is the same as yours, the same as anyone’s. It has taken me so many years, so many lifetimes, but at last I know where I am going, where I always been going. Home…the long way around.


The Doctors name

I can’t wait for Christmas to come…although it’ll be a sad special but I am dying to see the changing of a new Doctor.


  1. We’re not going to go into that here, however. The point is, a massive spoiler for this episode was revealed weeks ago, one that has massive ramifications both for the production team’s future ability to keep these things under wraps, and for the series’ 50th anniversary episode.

  2. Glad to see you enjoyed the episode. I thought it was really well-done and the acting was brilliant. It really explored the mythology of the Doctor and helped set up what could be an awesome Christmas episode. I also enjoyed seeing my workplace on the screen!

    1. Which scene is your workplace?

      I really really enjoy it although I still wish Billie Piper was Rose. I really want to see how eleventh reacts to her.

  3. 🙂

    It was a really clever episode and I came to like John Hurt’s Doctor as much as all the others because they made him fierce in battle but kept the heart that all the others share without being too bitter or mean.

    Having all 13 Doctors show up for the very climax was superb using that old stock footage to the best advantage to make it seem real, but my moment of greatest joy was the little ‘walk-on” role that Tom Baker did at the end… the oldest actor to ever play the Doctor that is still alive and the one I first watched all those years ago as a child. I was pleased to see that he wanted to be a personal part of this one and bring those memories back for all the fans who loved him from way back then.

    But…. this also makes me worry…. if John Hurt was the real “9th Doctor”… then that makes Christopher Eccleston the 10th, David Tennant the 11th, Matt Smith the 12th and Time Lords are only supposed to be able to regenerate 12 times so this next Doctor is the “last”!!! 😦

    If they stick to that story element…. and it seems pretty well written in stone. There was a big deal about the Master only being able to continue to regenerate by “cheating” and stealing away new bodies back on the old series.

    If so, I wish our new Doctor a good long run….. I just don’t want the series to end!!

    1. Hahahaha…you tell the ending!! HUGE spoiler!! 😉
      I was dying to control my fingers NOT to type about how all thirteen of them show up at the end. And about Tom baker.

      Nah…I don’t worry much about that, I am sure they can make a twist to save the Doctor. I don’t think BBC will stop Doctor Who production now, not when it’s back on popularity again. We just have to wait their move to create new regeneration. And I do believe in the Night of the Doctor, the witches can have eternal life…maybe something will come from that.

  4. I remember the fourth Doctor. I guess it was the late 70’s, though I never saw all that many episodes. And you never had access to all the shows like you do now.

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
