Doctor Who 50th Anniversary! (Day of the Doctor Review and an Intro to Doctor Who)

Woosh! Woosh! Woosh! The TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space) makes the sound; the sound of hope that the Doctor is coming to save a planet, a person, history, or just to have fun. The Day of the Doctor, a special edition episode that came out on the fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who BBC TV series, was amazing, magical, science-y, thrilling, unbelievable, and just AWESOME! !

This episode's writer was Steven Moffat. The movie makes you feel like you are there in the moment, captured as one of the characters, just like the Time Lord paintings. It is also comical and makes you laugh all the time. John Hurt, Matt Smith, David Tennant, and Billie Piper starred in The Day of the Doctor. Matt Smith acts as the most recent, eleventh Doctor, while David Tennant stars as the tenth, and second most recent Doctor. John Hurt, has never acted as a Doctor before, but is revealed as the first Doctor. He is the Doctor that his future selves try to "forget" for what they did. Billie Piper plays as a part of John Hurt's (the "first" doctor) imagination, and a consciousness of the most powerful weapon in the universe. She is Bad Wolf (reference from the series). She played Rose Tyler in the season with the ninth doctor, Christopher Eccleston, and part of the first season with David Tennant. The special episode is very confusing if it is your first time watching Doctor Who, because it references names, people, objects, and planets from earlier in the series. The eleventh doctor's companion does not play too great a role in the special episode until the end. Overall, I thought this episode was the best!!!

I like the Doctor Who series because it is very suspenseful, adventures, comical, sometimes sad, and ends on a hopeful note. It is very interesting and that makes me want to watch each episode over and over again.
