Watch New Doctor Who Now – The Day Of The Doctor Prequel The Night Of The Doctor Is Already Here

One of the many innovations of this Moffat-n-Matt era of Doctor Who has been the minisode, thosee little snack-sized bonus bits of Doctor Who. They grew out of the tradition of special Who material for events like the Children in Need telethon but quickly became an attraction in their own right.

But as exciting as they sometimes were, I doubt none of the others was as keenly anticipated as this one.

So, along it comes: The Night of the Doctor, a prologue to next week’s 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor. We’re coming off a mother of a cliffhanger ending – could this really do anything to advance the suspense?

After you’ve seen that, and only after, I want to remind you of a previous story I wrote for Bleeding Cool…

Next up will be an “exclusive 50th scene” during Children in Need tomorrow night. An excerpt from The Day of the Doctor, I expect?
