The meeting of the Doctors is almost upon us.
BBC America just released the first poster from the upcoming “Doctor Who” 50th Anniversary special, which airs Saturday, Nov. 23.
Hurt made his first appearance on the Season 8 finale as the Doctor’s biggest secret. It’s unclear what his role will be in the 50th Anniversary special, but Hurt described the role alongside Smith and Tennant as a “kind of trinity.”
