It’s coming, the big one, the one in which we get ALL the Doctors. Okay, it’s only been confirmed we’re getting a couple, but that’s sort of the fantastic thought in the back of your head at all times, right? A time traveler can cross his own path an infinite number of times, which means that all past and future regenerations of the Doctor could conceivably show up on screen at once, right?

Well, at the very least, they can show up in nifty CGI freeze frame, while Matt Smith gives a voice over:

Eh, I know I’m being a dick, but when the camera swooped towards Tennant at the climactic point of the dialog, I was really hoping that he was going to start talking because, well, he’s better.

Here’s the voice over text:

I’ve been running all my lives, through time and space; every second of every minute of every day for over 900 years. I fought for peace in a universe at war. Now the time has come to face the choices I have made in the name of the Doctor. Our future depends on one single moment of one impossible day, the day I’ve been running from all my life. The day of the Doctor.

November 23rd, everywhere. None of this waiting three months for PBS to get the rights, yes, we’re staring at you Downtown Abbey.
