The 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who will be broadcast in 3D the corporation has announced.
Although details of the planned special are few and far between it has been revealed the 50th anniversary will be marked with a 3D special. The news was announced on Monday 11th February as part of the BBC’s announcement on a wide range of drama commissions and re-commissions.
The press release quotes show-runner Steven Moffat as saying “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.”
Long-term fans of Doctor Who will remember that the 30th anniversary, and Children in Need special, in 1993 was also broadcast in a version of 3D. Dimensions in Time featured a crossover special with EastEnders and while it was done for charity its one special best left forgotten.
Reports state that the 50th anniversary special will be 60 minutes long but Steven Moffat and the BBC are refusing to be drawn on details. However, we can reveal that original series monsters The Ice Warriors will be returning to Doctor Who when its seventh season resumes at Easter.
