How The Internet Reacted To The New "Doctor Who" Teasers

There is still no sign of a trailer. But there is now a hashtag.

1. So before Atlantis on Saturday, BBC One put out some new stings for the Doctor Who 50th.

2. They’re encouraging fans to use this hashtag for The Day Of The Doctor.

Which is at least something in the absence of any trailer.

4. There is still no pleasing some people.

So the Dr Who hashtag is #savetheday. Once again marketing fails to understand the medium. It’s even a character LONGER than #doctorwho!

7. Some people just stayed angry about how long they’re having to wait for episodes.

@IanLevine DWO Yep. 50 years & missing a full series = great! No UK monthly repeats = great! Convention Exclusives for USA = great!!!

@richt1963 I find myself vehemently agreeing with you. It really is NOT so great after all - No matter what the "brand managers" might claim
