BBC's DOCTOR WHO to Get 3-D Treatment for 50th Anniversary Special

BBC's Doctor Who is getting ready to celebrate its 50th Anniversary in style! According to, the series will air an all-new episode to be broadcast in 3-D and shown in cinemas throughout the UK.

Explains the show's executive producer Steven Moffat, "It's about time. Technology has finally caught up with Doctor Who and your television is now bigger on the inside. A whole new dimension of adventure for the Doctor to explore."

The special anniversary episode is set to air on November 23 in the U.K., to mark the anniversary of the day that Whovians were first introduced to the Doctor in 1963. The series will conclude its seventh season on BBC and BBC America on March 30.


The truth about River Song is out and the time has come for the Doctor to face his greatest demons. Venturing across centuries and galaxies, the Doctor, Amy and Rory will encounter the greatest war criminal in all of history-and Hitler. Together, they'll discover there's no scarier place in the universe than a child's bedroom and a visit to an alien quarantine facility will reveal to Rory a very different side to his wife. In a hotel where walls move, corridors twist and rooms vanish, death lies waiting. But the Doctor's time has yet to come. He has one last stop to make on his final journey-an old friend needs his help and an old foe must be defeated. But time catches up with us all and the Doctor can delay no more.

By the shores of Lake Silencio, in Utah, all of time and space hang in the balance. And a NASA astronaut is waiting.

Doctor Who is the continuing saga of a mysterious time traveler who picks up human companions and faces evil foes with little more than his wits and a sonic screwdriver while he journeys throughout time and space in the TARDIS-a unique craft disguised as a police call box. As the famed Whovian Craig Ferguson once said, it's about "the triumph of intellect and romance over brute force and cynicism."
