Doctor Who 2013 Christmas Special Title Announced Plus a Teaser Video

The BBC has confirmed that the upcoming 2013 Doctor Who Christmas special is titled, 'The Time of the Doctor.' So we have had 'The Name of the Doctor', 'The Night of the Doctor', 'The Day of the Doctor', and now 'The Time of the Doctor' all in row with only the mini episode titled, 'The Last Day' interrupting the pattern. There's a teaser promo video for it, albeit very short, that the BBC has released as well (see below). How many days until Christmas now?

Sonic Screwdriver? There's an App for That!

Now in the iOS App Store is the Doctor Who: Sonic Screwdriver (Official) (for iOS 5 or later). Is if it wasn’t already overused on the television series, now it’s available on our iPhone. It includes four 3D models of sonic screwdrivers and thankfully not just limited the last seven years. It gives you a choice of two kinds of backgrounds for your sonic screwdriver. One is “transparent” (thanks to the rear camera) which emulates holding the actual sonic screwdriver as it will pick up whatever background you are pointing your iOS device towards (pretty nifty, huh?). Of course it has various sonic screwdriver sounds (it wouldn’t be “sonic” otherwise). You can even shake the 11th Doctor’s model to extend it. Plus it’s a flashlight app as well (for those with a camera flash and who haven’t updated to iOS 7 which now has it built-in the OS, may find this feature handy). 

Teaser Promo Video for Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor [VIDEO]

This english-speaking teaser promo with spanish sub-titles seems to have been leaked on the net today for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, 'The Day of the Doctor' - Watch while you can now. It features Matt Smith, David Tennant, and John Hurt along with other familiar faces.

The (original) video has been removed at the source. Word is that the BBC will be debuting the promo this weekend though. So if you missed it, you should should be able to see it in the next day or two.
