The BBC has announced the title of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special to be "The Day Of The Doctor," that stars Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt as the three Time Lords.

The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special is also listed at 75 minutes in length with the show airing Saturday, November 23rd.

In a statement released by the BBC, the 11th Doctor Matt Smith said, "Hope you all enjoy. There's lots more coming your way."

The BBC also announced plans for:

A BBC Two lecture by Professor Brian Cox on the science behind the hit show and the drama "An Adventure In Space and Time," written by Mark Gatiss.

Four Doctor Who episodes are being restored and rerun.

The Culture Show is to present Me, You and Doctor Who, with lifelong fan Matthew Sweet exploring the cultural significance of the BBC's longest running TV drama.

A 90-minute documentary on BBC Radio 2 will ask "Who Is The Doctor?"

It's also stated Matt Smith has begun filming his final scenes as Peter Capaldi is set to replace him in this December's Doctor Who Christmas Special.

Showrunner Stephen Moffat offered, "50 years has turned Doctor Who from a television show into a cultural landmark. Personally I can't wait to see what it becomes after a hundred."

In addition to Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt, the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary will feature Jenna Coleman and Billie Piper.
