"The Day of the Doctor" brings together actors Matt Smith and David Tennant as the Doctor. The special also stars John Hurt as the War Doctor, a past regeneration of the Doctor not seen previously.

As part of the 50th Anniversary celebration, BBC will also broadcast a docudrama that will take fans behind the scenes of the show's creation.

"An Adventure in Space and Time" stars David Bradley as William Hartnell, the first actor to play the Doctor in 1963. The show premieres Friday night, November 22, 2013, at 8pm on BBC America.  BBC America is leading up to the 50th Anniversary special with marathons and tributes all this week.
