New Found-Footage Style Episode Of Doctor Who Available Now On iTunes

Doctor Who 50th Dalek 2I wasn't expecting The Last Day to actually be a Doctor Who mini-episode, but as it happens, it is. And it does recount a last day, but you'll have to watch it to see which. I'm not going to spoil it here.

While the episode will ultimately be included on the Day of the Doctor disc, at the moment, it's only available via iTunes. It's £2.49, and I just bought it and watched it and…

…well, it's not the best Doctor Who minisode I've ever seen. It does tease some kind of set-up for The Day of the Doctor but not on the scale of last week's The Night of the Doctor.

Incidentally, don't play the iTunes preview before watching the whole thing. It spoils it completely.

If you think you're going to pick up the Day of the Doctor disc, I'd advise you wait for that rather than sink cash into this now. Unless, of course, you just can't get enough of this stuff and would like another, rather minor, bit of background before the 50th anniversary.

Anyway, there's now a found footage Doctor Who story… if you can call it "footage." Cross that one off the list.

Really want a little bit more info before you buy? Okay, well here's the official blurb:

First day on the front line? Time to attach a Headcam for a soldier's point-of-view. What could possibly go wrong?

The minisode is 3:43 long, including credits. And there's no sign of the Doctor. Not any version of The Doctor. Or The Tardis. Or Clara or Rose, or Queen Elizabeth or a Zygon or pretty much anybody we've associated with The Day of the Doctor.

Yeah. This seems like the first big misfire in the Day of the Doctor publicity campaign but I'm sure we'll be back on track later.
