Dr. Who Coming to British 3D TV Sets for Christmas
Doctor Who is maybe the oldest TV series. For its 50th anniversary, it will be screened in 3D just before Christmas 2013. Doctor Who celebrates its 50th birthday in November, but it is not the first time viewers have had the chance to see the Time Lord in stereoscopic 3D. Doctor Who's 30th anniversary was marked in 1993 with a 3D story, "Dimensions in Time", broadcast as part of Children In Need.
The stereoscopic 3D special will be visible in cinemas in the UK and can be watched at home on the BBC HD channel on 23 November, 2013. The BBC’s controller of drama commissioning Ben Stephenson said: “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.”
Doctor Who will celebrate its half centenary with a special birthday edition on 23 November, exactly 50 years after its first episode "An Unearthly Child" aired.
The plot of the 3D special has not been revealed but the Time Lord will once again be played by Matt Smith, with Jenna-Louise Coleman as his assistant. Stephenson’s comments suggest that the plot of the 3D spectacular had yet to be finalised. "There will be lots of aliens and daleks and things like that – or maybe there won't," he said.
