"Doctor Who" celebrates its 50th anniversary tomorrow with "The Day of the Doctor," a highly anticipated episode starring current Doctor Matt Smith, the previous Doctor David Tennant, and John Hurt portraying "The War Doctor," which we'll surely learn more about. Because this episode is being simulcast around the world, "The Day of the Doctor" will be broadcast in the middle of the afternoon here, starting at 2:50 p.m.
If you want to watch the episode with a crowd of Whovians who will get every reference to Gallifrey, or you don't have BBC America, head to the Queen Vic on H Street NE, where it will be shown on the large projection screen with full sound. "There's a bunch of Whovians who come to the bar," explains owner Ryan Gordon. The British pub will open at 10 a.m. and show a full slate of English soccer at brunch, but the channel will be changed to the "Doctor Who" pre-show special at 2:30.
One question: Will they be serving fish fingers and custard in honor of Smith's final voyage in the Tardis?
