by Greg Belfrage

Only nine days left until the 50th Anniversary Special of "Doctor Who" and the BBC isn't wasting any promotional opportunity.

"The Day of the Doctor" stars David Tennant and Matt Smith as the 10th and 11th Doctors, respectively. The show will air at 1:50pm and 6:00pm Central Saturday, November 23rd on BBC America.

BBC is teasing the special with a seven minute online mini-episode, "Night of the Doctor". Fans will immediately recognize actor Paul McGann. McGann played the Doctor in the 1996 television movie, "Doctor Who". McGann assumed the role again in 2003 for a six episode mini-series, "Doctor Who: Shada".
