TV: The Day of the Doctor
This Doctor Who special, celebrating the show’s 50th anniversary, is unmissable on the big screen.
Dir Nick Hurran
With John Hurt, David Tennant, Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman, Christopher Eccleston
For this extended one-off episode celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, there was only really ever one choice to play the Doctor in an incarnation from his past – it had to be John Hurt. In this story revolving around a terrible choice that the Doctor must make during the deadly Time Wars, Hurt is able to bring all his weight and gravitas to embody a Doctor haunted by his past, but with the wisdom to speak to his future selves.
