'Doctor Who' has grown from a cherished Engligh sci-fi program to a global phenomenon faster than you can say sonic screwdriver.

The sudden popularity couldn't have been timelier, with the 50th anniversary of the show right around the corner.

Steven Moffat, the creative mind behind the revamped show, has been teasing the anniversary episode, 'Day of the Doctor' for months, but an official trailer has only just been released.

Fans flocked to YouTube and BBC Saturday when news of the trailer hit. In less than 24 hours, the trailer has been viewed over 300,000 times and boasts almost 3,000 excited comments.

Like Moffat promised, the episode looks like it's gearing up to be an episode for true fans of the series, both old episodes and new.

"Now comes the time to face the choices I made in the name of the doctor," Matt Smith, the eleventh and most current doctor, says in the trailer.

Fans will be happy to know Moffat and his writing team have decided to include all of the past doctors (and some of their friends) in the episode. With a few of the doctors having passed away in recent years, how this will be done is not yet known.

"Our future depends on one single moment, of one impossible day," Smith says.

Moffat and his team have confirmed that the 10th doctor, and a true fan favourite, David Tennant will be returning for a large part of the episode.

From the trailer, it looks like there will be emphasis on the fourth doctor, Tom Baker, and the first doctor, William Hartnell.

'Day of the Doctor' premieres on November 23rd 2013, so be sure to book it off now.
