The Day of the Doctor – the Twitter reaction

Three Doctors, three screwdrivers and cup-a-soup, plus surprise cameos from two key Doctor Who figures, have left Twitter awash with positive fan feedback


The Day of the Doctor has come and gone, people. And what a treat it was.


We had Matt Smith, David Tennant, Billie Piper and John Hurt. Plus Peter Capaldi AND Tom Baker. Love for the episode, which was simulcast for Who fans around the world, has flooded social media, trended on Twitter and left Whovians everywhere proud of the sci-fi show’s 50 year history. 

Here’s what the Twittersphere had to say…

You were all loving Tom Baker’s surprise cameo…

And when our new Doctor Peter Capaldi made an early appearance…

Everyone was showing some love for cup-a-soup, too.

Even the question of that not-quite-tied-up storyline was forgiven…

It wasn’t ALL good news, though. You might have loved the episode itself… But the same couldn’t be said for the BBC3 afterparty.
