Doctor Who: The Night of the Doctor - New Mini Episode 'Prequel' to The Day of the Doctor [VIDEO]

Night of the Doctor

Wow! We weren't expecting it unit this weekend, but surprise, it's here now! It's the first of many surprises in this new mini-episode "prequel' to Doctor Who: 'The Day of the Doctor' entitled, 'The Night of the Doctor.' Enjoy!

I'm not trying to be sarcastic or stir up the pot, but am I alone in thinking that this is easily the best story of the Matt Smith era?  Which is kinda sad for several reasons, not the least of which is that the story is only 7 minutes long, and Matt Smith is not even in it.

I don't mean this as a knock against Smith, but more against the writing which has been atrocious since Moffat took over the show.  He wrote several good/great stories while RTD was running things, but the added responsibilities of producing seem to have taken a toll on his quality of writing.

We are all so excited about the mini episode, The Day of the Doctor. We are all wishing we could have more of it. I'm not sure if it is due to finally seeing more screen-time of a Doctor that had been short-changed or indeed the writing of it or a combination of both, plus the added surprise of bringing back an element from the Tom Baker era with the Sisterhood. Perhaps all of the above. I do wish we could see more of the 8th Doctor adventures on screen, be it flashbacks or otherwise.
