Continuing a theme of titles ending “of the Doctor” (Name, Night, Day) it’s been announced that the final adventure of Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor will be The Time of the Doctor.

The official synopsis runs:
“Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars. And amongst them – the Doctor. Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.”

Artwork and a trailer has been released alongside the announcement. Returning foes include the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Weeping Angels and the Silence. The Time of the Doctor will see the Eleventh Doctor return to Trenzalore, his supposed final resting place, and all indications are that the phrase “Silence will fall” (recurrent since Series 5) will finally be explained. No word yet on whether River Song (Alex Kingston) will be appearing but given her vital presence within Matt Smith’s era of Doctor Who it seems almost impossible that she should be left out.

The Time of the Doctor is expected to be transmitted on 25 December 2013 and will introduce Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor (whose eyes were briefly seen in The Day of the Doctor).

    I don’t know how the numbering works anymore. We might still see Matt Smith as the 11th, but we do now have the inclusion of John Hurt’s War Doctor…. and towards the end of The Day Of The Doctor, it is mentioned that all 13 turned up. That’s with the glimpse of Peter Capaldi’s eyes.
    Just re-watched the Doctor Who movie which introduced Paul McGann and he keeps mentioning about having 13 lives and how The Master had already used all 13 of his own lives. And yet, the Master did return… Steven Moffet did say there was a loophole to the whole thing. There was also one bit of a throwaway line that did mention that the 8th Doctor was half human…
    Anyway… still a month to go.
