New Doctor Who footage released ahead of trailer debut

The first official footage of the 50th anniversary Doctor Who episode The Day Of The Doctor has been unleashed by the BBC.

The clip, which has surfaced on YouTube ahead of the release of the official trailer, features Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman as the Doctor and Clara, being shown a mysterious painting in the National Gallery.

And as they are told it represents ‘Elizabeth’s credentials’, Clara gasps: “But that’s not possible.”

While the clip reveals just eight seconds of action from the show, it marks the first time that Doctor Who fans will have had a chance to see footage from the 50th anniversary show.

It will be followed by the official trailer, which will be shown for the first time on BBC One at 8pm on Saturday night, between Strictly Come Dancing and Atlantis – while a second trailer will follow on Sunday evening.

The initial 40-second preview – which sees Matt Smith interacting with former Doctor David Tennant, as well as the re-appearance of John Hurt’s mysterious character – was also released by the BBC on Saturday morning after being leaked by a Spanish website and then removed.

It can be seen at the BBC’s official Doctor Who website by clicking here.

The Day Of The Doctor will be shown on BBC One on Saturday November 23 at 7.50pm, as well as being simulcast in 75 countries across the world.

A number of UK cinemas will also play host to 3-D screenings of the feature-length episode, which will run for 75 minutes.

It will mark Matt Smith’s penultimate appearance as the Doctor before he bows out at Christmas to be replaced by Peter Capaldi.

The first clip of the show can be seen below.
