Global broadcasters have agreed to simulcast a 3D special honoring DOCTOR WHO's 50th anniversary to avoid plot leaks or spoilers. The special will air on Saturday, November 23 at 7 p.m. on BBC1, 2 p.m. ET, 11 a.m. PT.
BBC Worldwide said in a statement: "It's always been our ambition to work with our broadcast partners so that international Doctor Who fans can enjoy the 50th Anniversary special at the same time as the UK. We'll have more details soon about our very exciting global plans for November."
The episode, which will unite Matt Smith’s Doctor with David Tennant's tenth, has reportedly been sold to 200 countries and is expected to reach more than 100 million viewers, making it the biggest global drama simulcast in history. It will also be screened in cinemas in the UK.
