Doctor Who fiftieth anniversary title confirmed: The Day of the Doctor


The BBC confirmed earlier today that the Doctor Who fiftieth anniversary special is titled The Day of the Doctor.  The 75 minute fiftieth special, which, of course, premiers on November 23, features Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor, David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor, and John Hurt as an indeterminate past Doctor.

Following on from The Name of the Doctor, one wonders whether the series seven finalé, the fiftieth anniversary, and the 2013 Christmas special—in which the Eleventh Doctor will regenerate—are somehow interconnected: will the Christmas special be titled something like The ___________ of the Doctor, as well?

He launched Time and The – ! in 2011 after having the bright (?) idea to watch every Doctor Who story from the beginning and blog about it. (Yeah, he's way behind.)
