    Don't click if you want to avoid 50th Anniversary episode info.

    The baddies for the 50th Anniversary episode are old style Daleks and Zygons.

    i think they have confrimed John Hart to be the docter who ended the time war

    And then, the big 50th Anniversary, exclusive to Comic-Con trailer reveal!

    It opens on Smith saying, (and I'm approximating here, so forgive me) "Iíve had many faces, many lives, not all of which I admit to. Thereís one I try to forget." We then go through a 3-minute overview of an adventure that looks to primarily focus on a team-up between Smith and Tennant's Doctor's, the return of Rose, and a journey through the "Dark Doctor's" (John Hurt) past during the Time War.

    And doesn't really explain why the first trailer to a popular British tv show is only shown at an American convention and not made available to everyone else...

    isn't BBC America, just the BBC available for Americans???

    something to do with government money not being allowed to fund BBC in other territory's didn't realise they funded programs (if they do, then do we get them here?)

    It's because really loyal fans should be prepared to go overseas on the off chance a TV show funded by and made in the UK has a trailer shown there. Obviously.

    I remember them saying some stuff about BBC America funding bits of it when pieces of episodes were filmed in the US. Not the whole show though.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    They don't fund the whole show no, if they did the budget would be a hell of a lot bigger than it currently is seeing how popular it is over the states right now. It would also probably mean they could get rid of the stupid split series malarkey which is essentially down to how, when and where the budget can be spent meaning they can't film all 13 episodes of a series in one go anymore.

    Not quite.

    Its a subsidiary of BBC Worldwide that shows British TV programs, mostly, but not exclusively BBC. BBC America is rapidly increasing its audience share, and is now commissioning shows as well as entering co-production agreements.

    Orphan Black is a good example of this, a great slice of totally crazy.

    Den of Geek is saying the next Doctor announcement is due this weekend and a rumour is going round saying it will be Peter Capaldi. It won't be, but that would be awesome.... "Listen, you Dalek fuck, either you take your pimply, plunger faced twatbots off this planet, or I will reboot you the fuck off with my cock. Ah am the fucking Doctor!"

    Sunday, it seems Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor.

    Be funny if it was David Morrissey. For the lolz.

    Peter Capaldi would be interesting. I've only ever seen him play Tucker, and a number of very very grey men. Neither of which would be exactly ideal as a Doctor character, so it'd be interesting to see what they come up with.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Peter Capaldi would be pretty incredible as he's pretty much great in everything I've seen him in, I'll ignore World War Z because he really didn't have much to do and that part of the film was terrible.

    Some will mention he's been in Torchwood and Doctor Who but it's not like people who have appeared in Who stuff before don't reappear anyway, like he has already!

    I don't think it'll be him though.

    It does sound like a smokescreen/spin. Wasn't everyone convinced it would be that black guy last time? (Can't remember his name, I thought it was Patton Oswalt, but turns out he's a fat American white guy...)

    Stephen Fry please!

    Or Hugh Laurie!

    Neither of these will happen though. It'll probably be someone I've never heard of which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    What. The. Fuck.

    Milking it for every last drop of ratings.

    Any Netflix library in the world for a couple of quid a month? Gimme!

    Capaldi would be amazing but I just don't think they'll do that. They'll go with another kid, even though there's been too many eager, cheeky youngsters in a row now.

    I'd love to be proved wrong.

    Yeah I'd love it to be someone more mature but you have to remember that the BBC are more worried about the American audience now a days, and the show is massive with the whole Twilight demographic of teenage girls.

    So as much as I'd like to proven wrong, I'm pretty sure part of their decision on the new Doctor will be strongly based on who they can continue to market well across the pond.

    @M83J01P97 I agree it's an odd situation where they actually have to earn their money in America whereas we just give it to them here. It just means we will see more and more shows on the bbc catering to the Americans as the more people who watch it over there the better the ad revenue
