Doctor Who Goes 3D For 50th Anniversary Special

It appears that this fall's 50th anniversary special of television's time-traveling Gallifreyan gallivanter, Doctor Who will be coming at fans...in 3D!

Yes, while not much is known yet about the still-mysterious special celebrating the venerable franchise's golden anniversary, it has been confirmed that the entire episode will be presented in three dimensions. According to head visionary of Who's current incarnation, Steven Moffat, technology has finally reached a level where such a venture could be done to standards appropriate for the good Doctor. The quality will apparently be on such a level that the episode will actually be screened at theaters in the UK.

"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."

The show itself prepares a return on March 30 on BBC and BBC America for its seventh series, rejuvenated with a new companion (whose superpower seems to be that she dies a lot) played by Jenna-Louise Coleman. The 50th Anniversary special, however is quite a while away, set to premiere in the UK on November 23, the date of Who's original premiere back in 1963. Accompanying it sometime within the anniversary tent-pole will be the annual Christmas special and a recently-announced TV movie in which David "Argus Filch" Bradley plays the First Doctor actor, William Hartnell in a biographical drama spotlighting the genesis of Doctor Who called An Adventure in Space and Time.

For now, speculation continues to run rampant on what will be in store for Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith in the upcoming thrill ride of a special; especially considering that it will be such a spectacle that it will require the use of...well, spectacles. Whatever it is, it will surely be reflective of the show's vast history, mixed with the brand of deep, yet accessible quirkiness that now fuels the show's current widespread success.
