The BBC have released a new mini-episode in anticipation of the 50th anniversary. It’s got Paul McGann, John Hurt and, judging by online feedback, definitely seems to have united Who fans in an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response to the upcoming episode.

Taking place in the middle of the infamous Time War, this 6 minute special explains the origins of John Hurt’s newly-titled ‘War Doctor’; a specialised regeneration offered by the Sisterhood of Karn.

With McGann making an unexpected but welcome appearance as the Time Lord, the episode neatly explains how his incarnation came to an end. Naturally, this raises questions about the claims of the other Doctors. Does this mean that we could see Christopher Eccleston once more? Only time will tell.

Watch the video below to see what all the fuss is about.
