Before his first panel appearance at the Doctor Who Official 50th Celebration at the ExCel centre in London, executive producer and head writer Steven Moffat was presented with the Guinness World Record for the largest ever simulcast of a TV drama.
The 50th anniversary special "The Day of the Doctor" was shown in 94 countries on six continents. Upon receiving the award, Moffat noted that for years the Doctor had been trying to stop others from conquering the globe, but "now, just to show off, he's gone and done it himself!"
Last night's simulcast was shown at over 1,500 cinemas worldwide in the U.K. and the U.S., as well in Canada, Latin America, Germany, Russia and Scandinavia. At its peak, the BBC One broadcast had over 10.61 million viewers.
