Warning! This article and its comments may contain spoilers...

In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

It was the day he’s been running from all of his lives, but was it a day worth waiting for?

Well it doesn’t get much bigger than that! Doctor Who has just celebrated an honourable 50 years of time and space in a spectacular adventure that premiered simultaneously on TV and in cinemas worldwide. Millions of fans over the globe united as the Doctor’s past came back to haunt him and it was three Time Lords for the price of one as the mystery of John Hurt’s inscrutable incarnation was finally resolved. And what a resolution it was…

50 years ago today the Doctor started running and he hasn’t stopped running since. With returning Doctors, companions and villains alike, tonight’s landmark special paid tribute to the show’s spectacular past and also looked to the future as an ancient battle reached its devastating conclusion. There were plenty of shocks and surprises along the way and the stakes had never been higher… Now the Moment’s been and gone, how do you feel?

After years, months and weeks of huge anticipation and speculation, did The Day of the Doctor live up to your expectations? Was it worthy recognition of the Time Lord’s half a century in business? There’s lots to say and one place to say it. Share your views below!

    That was the BEST episode EVER!!! I absolutely loved it!!!!! I watched it AT LEAST 20 times!!! I think I can quote the whole episode through now!!! I loved how David Tennant showed up!! He was my favorite doctor!!!! I think John Hurt played the war doctor brilliantly! If I could watch only one episode for the rest of my life, it would be that!!!

    I’m having a Birthday film marathon soon with some friends of mine and I’ve chosen the Day of The Doctor to be the last film on the list! My friends aren’t big Whovians as I am so I hope they enjoy it!

    Doesn’t anyone remember Martha and 10 visiting William Shakespeare when Queen Elizabeth showed up angry with that pernicious doctor? At the time 10 didn’t know what he’d done to make her so angry so he and Martha just ran! (After all life with a time traveler who knew it could be such fun?) But thanks to this brilliant episode we now know that the doctor married Elizabeth and ran out on her! Typical man! Naturally she held a grudge! Which is why she yelled off with his head seemingly in the past!

    This was just one of the many brilliant and subtle moments of the greatest Who episode ever! I’m sure others can add more!
