I bought this primarily for the 3D version although I am a fan of Dr. Who as well.
First the Doctor, I am old school Dr. Who harking back to William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton in the sixties.
I have been a little disappointed by recent Who shows with young dynamic Dr's that can win every situation with a flick of their
sonic screwdrivers.
However this episode was exceptional, worthy of the anniversary edition, decent story, plenty of good humour and some great performances. I am excited by the prospect of Peter Capaldi coming next.
Then there is the matter of the 3D version.
Outstanding, this is amongst the very best 3D discs I now own, top quality from a top quality producer, the BBC.
If you are like me both a Dr. Who fan and a lover of 3D, then you must buy this, you'll watch it over and over again.

Very rarely in life when something is hyped up so much for such a lengthy period of time can it actually deliver, in fact it's more likely the case that the lower your expectations the more chance you are going to be pleasantly surprised. Given the diverse history of Doctor Who, the plethora of script writers, the myriad of different characters who played the role (often poles apart) whoever was going to be given the task of writing the 50th Anniversary Special was on a hiding to nothing. So hats off to Mr Moffat on a truly stupendous roller coaster ride of an episode in the life of the most brilliant sci-fi series ever to grace this planet. It's not without it's faults & it was never going to please everybody but I for one was delighted to have some of the gaps filled in with the mini prequel showing Paul McGann's regeneration (included in this set) & John Hurt's regeneration in the show itself. The best kept secret of the surprise cameo appearances of the 13th Doctor & Tom Baker at the end was a stroke of genius. Yes, it would have been great to see Christopher Eccleston reprise his role but he has always made it abundantly clear he was never a fan of Doctor Who, this was an acting job he did with great relish eight years ago & he politely declined to take any part in a celebration of a show he never watched as a child. My other regret is this wasn't given the full movie treatment & a timing to match. I truly believe it would of benefited greatly if it was closer to a two hour affair as the plot did seem rushed at points & certain characters would have benefited for having their roles fleshed out. There, I hope I have managed to lower your expectations just a little if you haven't already seen it so you can enjoy it for what it is ... a love letter from a fan to Doctor who. Here's to the next 50 years.

I absolutely loved THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR and was looking forward to owning it on blu ray. Watched it tonight and it appears the quality control folks were off having a tea break when the audio for this was being put together. It sounds fine via a 5.1 surround set up, but appalling via television stereo speakers. The best way I can describe it is that the music takes on a tinny, warbly effect that is very distracting. There's definitely a problem here that needs to be addressed. I've read of the same complaints reported elsewhere so hopefully people will let the BBC know and something will be done to get this issue sorted and replacement discs issued.

The ultimate question that rests upon the mind of Who fans everywhere (and everywhen) - what happened to, and at, Gallifrey back in the era of the Time War - is answered in the most divine, sublime, heartbreakingly beautiful and brilliant way possible in this, the most extraordinary and watchable episode of DOCTOR WHO ever made.

It starts out with a bit of James Bond-esque parody and fun, with the TARDIS being innocently picked up by helicopter and returned to UNIT HQ - but with Clara and the Doctor still inside. From there, a note from Queen Elizabeth THE FIRST is hand delivered to the world’s favourite time travelling super hero, and then the action simply never lets up.

The episode is brilliantly structured and plotted on several different levels. Earth is under attack from shape shifting aliens in their own truly brilliant way and its only the Doctors with a little inspirational help (from Mega Babe Clara Oswald) who can come up with the perfect solution to beat them at their own game. But the story is not just about an alien invasion.

The overall solution to it all is so overwhelming and satisfying, that at program’s end, you don't know if you should laugh, cry, stand up and applaud your television set or even send love letters to the British Prime Minister for creating the BBC in the first place. I suggest that you calm down, and watch the whole thing again. That is what I did.

As an epilogue to the episode, there is a cameo from a famous Doctor from the past (or is that the future?), but this is more than a mere cameo. It is the icing on the cake, but even that phrase fails to do its effect on the viewer justice.

I absolutely love this episode in the Doctor Who saga with the three Doctors, the comic timing of all three actors was spot on and it's one I absolutely recommend even if you're not an avid fan of the show. In my opinion it has the edge over The Time Of The Doctor, with the brief glimpse of 13th Doctor Peter Capaldi at the finale being the briefest yet most effective way to get us fans wanting more.
Now here's my gripe. I've viewed three copies of this dvd bought from different stores in Britain and there's one problem that persists. What have they done to the music soundtrack(Try watching it with headphones on to see what I mean)?
It begins with the opening shot of the original black and white Doctor Who visual effect where for some reason the music only comes out on the right hand side. Voices come out with no problem, though there is evidence of sound effects weakness from the left. Throughout the entire episode the more bass music is again over to the right which is a distraction, yet if you try the Audio Navigation these problems disappear. Why this wasn't corrected before they released it is astonishing. I haven't had this problem with any other Doctor Who dvds, so suggestions to adjust my audio settings (as one BBC Complaints Dept advised me when I finally got a reply) are pointless.
I understand the Blu Ray version also has audio problems. Come on BBC!! You charge us enough for these things, shouldn't you get them right before you sell them. Whoever was responsible for setting the audio for the dvd needs sacking!!
When it's shown on tv there are absolutely no problems.
I urge everybody who bought this dvd, and the Blu Ray if the problems are the same, to bombard the BBC with your complaints and let's get The Day Of The Doctor re-issued with all the audio and, if needed, visual mistakes sorted.
