Ben Stephenson, the BBC’s Controller of Drama Commissioning, has revealed some exciting news about plans to mark Doctor Who’s half-century.
Earlier this week he announced, ‘As part of the BBC’s blockbuster celebrations to mark the Doctor turning 50, fans will be able to see the Time Lord and his adventures like never before – in 3D!’
To be broadcast using some of the BBC’s HD capacity, 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.’
In the meantime, the Doctor and Clara return to BBC One on Saturday, 30 March for a run of eight epic adventures in which the Doctor is set to face returning villians the ‘Ice Warriors’. The Ice Warriors are an imposing, militaristic race from Mars that first appeared opposite the Second Doctor in the 1967 adventure, The Ice Warriors.
