Grab your sonic screwdriver and jump into your blue police box, because the 50th anniversary trailer for the British sci-fi cult fave "Doctor Who" is finally here. 

The BBC series about a time-traveling humanoid known as the Doctor will celebrate its 50th anniversary on Nov. 23, with a special episode called "The Day of the Doctor."

In advance of the occasion, producers cut together a special teaser including material from all 11 actors who have played the Doctor (the 12th, Peter Capaldi, will premiere in the Christmas special). The trailer was shown to fans at a Comic-Con session in July, but producers have otherwise kept it under wraps.

Until now. The one-minute trailer appeared on YouTube on Saturday and immediately proved addictive for Whovians. 

One fan operating under the handle Thechewienator wrote: "I gotta stop watching this. I have homework to do." 

BBC has taken pains to avoid spoilers for the special episode and is committed to airing it simultaneously in as many countries as possible. In the U.S., it will air on BBC America. 

What do you think of the trailer?
