For years, the “Doctor Who” creative team have hinted that something special is in store for the 50th anniversary. And earlier today, BBC finally revealed some its plans to celebrate the occasion.
Through BBC News, it was announced that the “Doctor Who” 50th Anniversary Special will be broadcast in 3D.
In a brief statement, “Doctor Who” executive producer and showrunner, 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.”
Over at Bleeding Cool, a separate report suggests that the 50th Anniversary Special may also be shown in movie theaters, but that information was not included in BBC’s official announcement. And any possible movie theater showings may limited to the U.K. market.
The special is being written by Moffat and it is expected to begin production this spring. However, it is still unclear if any of the previous Doctors of “Doctor Who” will reprise their incarnation of the title role for the special. It’s widely expected that at least some of them will appear in the special, but there is no official confirmation of that at this time.
“Doctor Who” Season 7 will resume on BBC America and BBC One on Saturday, March 30. The “Doctor Who” 50th Anniversary Special is expected to arrive in Fall 2013.
