“The Day of the Doctor is nearly here!" said Smith in a statement. "Hope you all enjoy. There’s lots more coming your way, as the countdown to the 50th begins now.”

Last month, the show announced that Peter Capaldi will take over for Smith after that actor exits following this year's Doctor Who Christmas special.

Doctor Who Quotes

Once, long ago, a fisherman caught a magic haddock. The haddock offered him three wishes in return for its life. The fisherman said, “I’d like for my son to come home from the war. And a hundred pieces of gold.” The problem is, the magic haddock, like robots, don’t think like people. The fisherman’s son came home from the war, in a coffin. And the king sent a hundred gold pieces in recognition of his heroic death. The fisherman had one wish left. What do you think he wished for? Some people say he should have wished for an infinite series of wishes, but if your city proves anything, it is that granting all your wishes is not a good idea. [...] In fact, the fisherman wished he hadn’t wished the first two wishes.
