Matt Smith, John Hurt attend ‘Doctor Who’ 50th anniversary reception

Matt Smith and John Hurt were greeted by Sophie, Countess of Wessex at the Doctor Who 50th anniversary reception held at Buckingham Palace this afternoon (November 18).

Smith and Hurt were joined by fellow former Time Lords Tom Baker and Peter Davison as they shook hands with host the Countess of Wessex in Buckingham Palace’s Bow Room.

The cast and crew at the event were also surrounded by iconic props from the TV series, including two versions of the TARDIS, a K-9 model and a pair of Daleks.

There was also a rather unflattering bow-tie-clad Matt Smith model erected at the event.

Other guests included writer Steven Moffat, Catherine Tate and current Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman.

Doctor Who’s anniversary special ‘The Day of The Doctor’ – which stars Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt – is being screened around the world on Saturday, November 23.
