The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th Anniversary Special. In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space, an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

Day of the Doctor comes with only 2 discs, a regular DVD and a blu ray/3D disc. First time I've ever seen both the blu ray and 3D versions be included on the same disc. Though the cover slip says Blu Ray 3D+Blu Ray+DVD, there are only 2 discs, not 3. Obviously the Blu Ray/3D has all the Special Features like the 8th Doctor and Fall of Arcadia short. Hope this review is helpful to someone out there.
The biggest thing that is great about this special, it doesn't eliminate any of Doctor Who from 2005 to 2013 in terms of story, but it does help eliminate the bad taste of the Doctor being the one who wiped out his own people. Sure, he can't remember, but we know that the Doctor didn't burn his people after all. It also helps in filling in gaps, the Night Of The Doctor shows the Eighth Doctor regenerating into the War Doctor, The Day Of The Doctor shows the War Doctor regenerating into the Ninth Doctor. We can safely assume that, without much in terms of time, the scene with The War Doctor regenerating is quickly lead into Series 1, Episode 1, Rose. A lot has been said about Moffat's storytelling, but at least these moves have helped fill holes that might otherwise have laid open.
This DVD includes the episode itself plus two web shorts that set up events. One of these, "The Last Day", focuses on the Dalek attack on Arcadia and the other, ""The Night of the Doctor", features Paul McGann's second and final on-screen role as the Eighth Doctor as he becomes the War Doctor (McGann played the Doctor in various radio stories, which he briefly references here). This, paired with the TV film "An Adventure in Time and Space," was a fitting celebration of 50 years of stories.
Only contains 2 disks and no documents. probably repackaged .. junk.
one disk has 3d emblem and no 3D one disk has DVD, one disk not there.
I bought it for my 3D blue ray player and cannot watch it now.
if it had a document in it to get 3D it is not there. The shrink wrap does not seem original and is flexible.
'a rip off.

Product is amazing, with all the mini episodes preceding this one as well as a short behind-the-scenes with commentary from Colin Baker, the sixth doctor (haters will hate him but what the hell). Packing was excellent as usual and it arrived on time, no questions asked.
It is a timeless epic, just like the Five Doctors special and well worth the money. More so if you are a Doctor Who fan. Brilliant!
I didn't want to pay full price for this so I waited until it was about half that.
My hunch paid off. Okay I got the programme, in 3D, but that is all I got. No frills whatsoever.
The menu system is less than basic and it took a while to work out how to turn off the Audio sub text. It took a few minutes and several restarts but I eventually got the disc to play.
That's about all I can say about it really. There's nothing else. No extras. Not even those on BB3, if there were any. Just someone's copy from a Tivo basically, if it weren't for the fact it was in 3D.
If you bought it at £16, I pity you. I bought it at £6. So I'm happy because for what I got that is the most that I would expect to pay.
4 stars simply because I liked that episode of Doctor Who.
Now here's my gripe. I've viewed three copies of this dvd bought from different stores in Britain and there's one problem that persists. What have they done to the music soundtrack(Try watching it with headphones on to see what I mean)?
It begins with the opening shot of the original black and white Doctor Who visual effect where for some reason the music only comes out on the right hand side. Voices come out with no problem, though there is evidence of sound effects weakness from the left. Throughout the entire episode the more bass music is again over to the right which is a distraction, yet if you try the Audio Navigation these problems disappear. Why this wasn't corrected before they released it is astonishing. I haven't had this problem with any other Doctor Who dvds, so suggestions to adjust my audio settings (as one BBC Complaints Dept advised me when I finally got a reply) are pointless.
I understand the Blu Ray version also has audio problems. Come on BBC!! You charge us enough for these things, shouldn't you get them right before you sell them. Whoever was responsible for setting the audio for the dvd needs sacking!!
When it's shown on tv there are absolutely no problems.
I urge everybody who bought this dvd, and the Blu Ray if the problems are the same, to bombard the BBC with your complaints and let's get The Day Of The Doctor re-issued with all the audio and, if needed, visual mistakes sorted.
If You like Dr WHO -I recommend.
But If You want to watch it to make up Your mind about it and have not really been watching series before- this might not be the best ones to start with. I imagine someone who hasn't at least seen series with David Tennant and Matt Smith (if not the whole 50yrs history) might be lost here.
It will make sense if You watch series 2 - 7 first. Maybe throw 8 in here as well while You're on it ;)
I've seen them all thanks to amazon prime video streaming- Thank You amazon :)
