The Doctor, the 76-minute 3D special celebrating half a century of Doctor Who.

It features at least three doctors — Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt — and will be broadcast in 84 countries simultaneously.

"I've been working very hard on a couple of things to do with it, but I can't give you any more than that," is all he'll say.

Showrunner Steven Moffat has revealed the special is going to be a game changer.

"The story focuses on the most important thing that ever happened to the Doctor," he says.

"But having seen Matt, and David and Christopher Eccleston, I now feel like I started a trend." THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR, ABC1, SUNDAY, 6.50AM
