UPDATED! Before ‘The Day of the Doctor’ Comes the Night…

dayofthedoctorHQWhen the DOCTOR WHO anniversary story, “The Day of the Doctor” is released on DVD, there will be even more Matt Smith and David Tennant material to love: a mini episode called “The Night of the Doctor,” with a running time of 6:54 has been approved for inclusion on the home release.

The question now is, will we see this material before the home release, which is slated for Dec. 2? And if we do get to see it, then when? I’m thinking that a very good place for that mini episode to air would be the annual Children in Need special. It airs on Nov. 15, just a week before the actual Nov. 23 anniversary itself, so the timing would be perfect.

ETA: Hang on! This just in! Another mini episode, this one titled “The Last Day” and clocking in at 3:57 has ben announced! So that’s two mini eps related to “The Day of the Doctor”! No official word on when either one will air.
