A specially-created trailer celebrating the last 50 years of Doctor Who will air tonight on BBC One, as an exclusive image is revealed today featuring the 11 Doctors.

Travelling through time, fans will be taken on a journey from the very beginning using state-of- the-art technology. The special trailer is set to show all of the Doctors as they first appeared on screen, including William Hartnell in high-res colour for the very first time, as celebrations ramp up to 23 November.

A huge moment for the BBC, the 50th celebrations will culminate with the special episode 'The Day of the Doctor', starring Matt Smith, David Tennant and Jenna Coleman with Billie Piper and John Hurt. A whole range of shows has also been commissioned across TV and radio to mark the anniversary.

The minute-long trailer will air after Strictly Come Dancing tonight on BBC One and will also be available on www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho
