Fans will be able to visit the Tardis in 3D in a special 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who later this year.
The special was announced by BBC Controller of Drama, Ben Stephenson, in a speech setting out his vision for drama on the BBC and announcements of new commissions, “As part of the BBC’s blockbuster celebrations to mark the Doctor turning 50, fans will be able to see the Time Lord and his adventures like never before – in 3D!
“It’s a nationwide celebration of both Doctor Who and the BBC because I think they are so synonymous. We will be doing a big Doctor Who special in 3D which is very exciting and feels very innovative.
We will be doing it on cinema screens as well. We are working out the logistics of that at the moment because we need to make sure the main BBC1 experience remains absolute value for money for the audience.”
To be broadcast using some of the BBC’s HD capacity, Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, 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.”
