50 'TIL 50TH!

Today marks a mere 50 days before audiences are finally treated to the broadcast of The Day of the Doctor, the 50th anniversary special episode of Doctor Who to be shown on November 23rd.

Alongside this countdown, BBC Worldwide have recently announced that the episode will be broadcast in over 75 countries. Such places include USA, Canada, Australia and various areas of Europe to name a few.

But in case you thought your T.V at home was the only way you could catch the episode, over 200 cinemas around the UK are simultaneously showing a live screening in 3D.

Tim Davie, chief executive of BBC Worldwide, said: “In its 50th anniversary year, we wanted to create a truly international event for Doctor Who fans in as many countries as possible and the simultaneous broadcast and cinema screening of the special across so many countries will make for a fitting birthday tribute to our Time Lord.”

So even though the show is so closely tied with British culture, it’s no wonder that other countries will be able to experience this momentous occasion.
