"Eleven's Hour is Over Now, the Clock is Striking Twelve's" - Clara

New York - December 18, 2013 - As the eleventh hour nears, a regeneration is on the horizon, but not before the Doctor (Matt Smith, How to Catch a Monster) and his companion, Clara (Jenna Coleman, Death Comes to Pemberley), enjoy one last adventure. This year's Doctor Who Christmas special marks the end of the Eleventh Doctor. Through his many adventures, this Doctor has rescued dinosaurs on a spaceship, married his love - River Song and encountered aliens including The Silence, Daleks, Cybermen, Weeping Angels and more. But it was his latest adventure, The Day of the Doctor, that effectively changed the course of his history as we know it when he and twelve versions of himself banded together to save Gallifrey from destruction. Now facing his very last adventure, the Eleventh Doctor receives a signal that brings him face-to-face with a massed force of the universe's deadliest aliens. What this signal means for his future life is unknown, but when the clock strikes twelve, the Eleventh will be no more.

Join BBC AMERICA for a full day of Doctor Who when the series takes over Christmas. Catch the TV premiere of the six-minute Doctor Who prequel, The Night of The Doctor at 6:00pm ET followed by an encore of the 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor. Then tune-in for the world premiere of an all-new special, Farewell to Matt Smith, a retrospective look back at Matt Smith's time as the Eleventh Doctor at 8:00pm ET followed by the premiere of The Time of the Doctor at 9:00pm ET.

ENCORE: THE NIGHT OF THE DOCTOR/THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR

Enjoy the television premiere of the six-minute prequel, The Night of the Doctor that leads into the 50th anniversary special. The Doctors (Matt Smith and David Tennant) embark on their greatest adventure across space and time. 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. The special is directed by Nick Hurran, executive produced by Steven Moffat, Faith Penhale and produced by Marcus Wilson. The Night of the Doctor and The Day of the Doctor airs Wednesday, December 25, 6:00pm ET.
