1st Day of the Doctor clip validates Matt Smith's Comic-Con hint

 When people asked for any time of teaser for The Doctor Who 50th episode, Matt Smith replied, "Paintings." Here's our first glimpse of why. 

People had assumed that we wouldn't be seeing any video for The Day of the Doctor until tomorrow's trailer, but the BBC have seen fit to grant us this early surprise. It's only the briefest of snippets, and yet, for reasons that will become clear in a moment, it's still really, really cool.

So Queen Elizabeth I's credentials appear to be a painting of an alien world burning. In fact, it could even be Gallifrey! 

Obviously, this is the tip of the iceberg, but it's neat that the BBC found a way to give fans a clip from this episode that feeds directly into what Matt Smith hinted at months ago.

Just the right glimpse to get us ready for tomorrow's trailer.

Episode VII finally has an official release date

In the sort of official announcement that, like a planet made entirely of ice or dust, passes for genuine life in the endless void of Star Wars news, Disney and Lucasfilm have officially given Episode VII the release date of Dec. 18, 2015. 

Disney chairman Alan Horn said in a statement that the date would “not only anchor the popular holiday filmgoing season but also ensure our extraordinary filmmaking team has the time needed to deliver a sensational picture.

” That latter point is already the subject of some controversy, after reports surfaced in the wake of Michael Arndt leaving that the film’s creative team—including Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy—had pushed for a delay to 2016, a request that Disney CEO Robert Iger accepted with the same sense of forgiveness Darth Vader showed Captain Needa.

Nevertheless, Abrams said today that he and Lawrence Kasdan specifically took over in order to meet that time frame, which now has a definitive end date to when we can stop speculating about things like that. 

It’s also worth noting that this will be the first Star Wars film to be released not in May but rather around Christmas

—because what goes together better than Star Wars and Christmas?

The show will follow up on the film's events... 

Marvel is crossing the streams again. The official description of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s November 19th episode titled "The Well" indicates that it will be crossing over with the events that take place in Thor: The Dark World. The synopsis reads as follows:

The show stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge and airs on Tuesdays on ABC.

The BBC just released the Day of the Doctor's official synopsis.

If you can't wait any longer, now you can finally know what this landmark episode will actually be about. 

There are a slew of things we don't know about Doctor Who's 50th-anniversary episode, The Day of the Doctor, but right at the top of that list is -- what is it about? Because we've heard from Moffat about how, in contrast to most of the show's stories, this one fixates on the Doctor himself. Beyond that though, we just haven't known.

Until now.

"The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th anniversary special. 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.

That is ... not what we were expecting. Yes, we knew Queen Elizabeth would be involved, but the rest is quite a surprise. Is the murderous plot against Elizabeth herself? And is the ancient battle waging in space the time-locked Time War? And what has awakened? Is it the Zygon we've seen set photos of or something else entirely?"

As with most of the information that's been revealed about this episode, the more we know, the more we don't know. Still, that's the fun.

Speculate away and tell us what you think this synopsis could mean.
