UPDATE #2 It's A Ongoing (In Progress) Thanksgiving Docback!! The 2013 Christmas Special, Future WHO, Report From London DOCTOR WHO 50th Celebration, And More!!
Thursday marks the beginning of a Holiday weekend here in the States. I’ll be juggling family and life stuff over the next few days, so I thought I’d go ahead and open a post-50th Docback for your amusement and consideration and participation.
I WILL LIKELY BE UPDATING THIS PIECE - so consider this something of a rolling Docback & be sure to check back over the next few days for potential content (including a report from the recent 50th celebration in London).
THIS YEAR’S CHRISTMAS SPECIAL IS CALLED…
The Time of the Doctor. Presumably it’ll transmit on Christmas Day, as previous DOCOTR WHO Christmas Specials have. TOTD will see the full insertion of Peter Capaldi’s forthcoming (regenerated from Matt Smith) Doctor into the mythos. BBC has released a promotional poster/image for the story…
...and here’s the first teaser.
STEVEN GETS ALL MOFFY REGARDING WHAT'S NEXT FOR THE DOCTOR...
Moff via DigitalSpy. Spoilery if you don't know the plot of The Day of the Doctor.
"He has the possibility of going home - he can find Gallifrey - but it might take him a while, who knows? And who knows what he'll do when he gets there? Get bored and run away again, I would think! But he has a mission statement.
"It's not like we'll spend every episode saying, 'I nearly found it!' - we absolutely will not do that - but it gives him somewhere to go. The Doctor doesn't know he's a character in a television show - he doesn't know he's having adventures for our entertainment - he's got to have something to do and that will be the thing he does."

BEHOLD THE WONDER OF THE FIVE(ISH) DOCTORS REBOOT
So many smiles. So many guest appearances. So much heart. An important companion piece to The Day of the Doctor in a special and lovely way...

SHADOWTIGER WENT TO THE 50th ANIVERSARY CELBRATION IN LONDON
...and was kind enough to send back some thoughts from the event. We deeply appreciate his time and effort - here's some perspective from his amazing experience!
Greetings from London!

[[[[[ A LIST OF PREVIOUS DOCBACKS CAN BE FOUND HERE!! ]]]]]
DOCBACK CODE OF CONDUCT
1) a Docback should be about completely open and free discourse regarding all things WHO with, obviously, some variation on subject matter from time to time - the real world intervenes, discussions of other shows are inevitable, etc.)...
2) matters of SPOILAGE should be handled with thoughtful consideration and sensitivity. Posts containing SPOILERS should clearly state that a SPOILER exists in its topic/headline and should never state the spoiler itself . "** SPOILER ** Regarding Clara" is OK, for example. "** SPOILER about that Motorcycle" is fine. **SPOILER** Why did everyone die?" Is NOT good.
And, above all...
3) converse, agree, disagree, and question as much as you want - but the freedom to do so is NOT a license to be rude, crass, disrespectful, or uncivilized in any way. Not remaining courteous and civil, as well as TROLLING or undertaking sensational efforts to ignite controversy, will result in banning. Lack of courtesy may receive one (1) warning before a ban is instigated. Obvious Trolling or Spamming will result in summary banning with no warning. One word posts intended to bump-up any Docback's figures on AICN's "Top Talkbacks" sidebar will be considered actionable Spam - they not only complicate efforts to access Docback from mobile devices, but impede readers' abilities to follow or engage in flowing conversation.
In short, it's easy. Be excellent to each other. Now party on...
