At an event for writers, actors, industry pros, and press, BBC Controller, Ben Stephenson announced that the landmark 50th anniversay celebration of “Doctor Who” will not only air in 3D, but will screen in movie theaters as well.
…fans will be able to see the Time Lord and his adventures like never before – in 3D! To be broadcast using some of the BBC’s HD capacity.
No details have been released about how exactly this is thing to work, or if it would be possible for those with an open disdain for 3D (this guy!) to enjoy the special sans blurriness/headache. What Stephenson did share were very, very vague details about what to expect from the special:
There will be lots of aliens and daleks and things like that – or maybe there won’t. There are many different things to take into account and we will also have a Christmas special after that and it all connects. Or maybe it doesn’t. There’s lots to work out.”
About the big event, Steven Moffat 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.
The “Doctor Who” 50th Anniversary Special airs November, 23 2013.
