November 23rd 2013 was the biggest day in Doctor Who's history, so it was to be expected that the show would celebrate in the biggest way possible, in a feature-length 50th anniversary special simulcast on TVs and in cinemas around the globe. It set a Guinness World Record for the largest worldwide televised broadcast as millions of Whovians scattered around the globe were united in one moment on one day... The Day of the Doctor. The 50th anniversary was remarkable not just for uniting Whovians all over the world but also for adding new material to the Whoniverse. It took the premise and characters that fans have come to know and love and shook it all up, sending it in a new direction which is full of hope and promise. By changing the direction of the show, the 50th anniversary special infused itself with new life - regenerated, if you will - and proved it can have the staying power to last for another 50 years at least. Being the ultimate celebration of all things Doctor Who, the 50th anniversary was a veritable hodgepodge of Whovian references, trivia, and pride. But there are some facts about The Day of the Doctor that even the most avid of Whovians may have missed. Are you ready to test your knowledge?
