1. If you’ve always wanted to see Doctors Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt on the big screen - excellent news!
The BBC has announced that the 50th anniversary episode, The Day Of The Doctor, will be screened in cinemas across the UK, the US, Canada, Ireland, Germany and Russia, at the same time as the BBC One broadcast of the show on November 23.
2. The screenings will be in 3D.
Australia and New Zealand will also get cinema screenings on November 24th, although they won’t be simultaneous with the broadcast. The BBC suggest they’ll also be announcing other countries soon.
Tickets for the UK and Ireland screenings will go on sale at 9am this Friday, October 25. Details of which cinemas around the world are showing the episode can be found at doctorwho.tv (although not all countries’ details are up yet).
216 cinemas across the UK and Ireland will show the episode, with just over 100 in Australia and NZ, 50 in Russia and 30 in Germany. The number for the US and Canada hasn’t been released yet - BBC America are due to announce details later this week - but we’re guessing it’ll be slightly more than “none” and slightly less than “loads”.
4. The first trailer for the 50th anniversary was released at the weekend:
