Show boss Steven Moffat 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."
And it seems the plan was first broached by star Smith back in 2011, when he mentioned it in an interview.
The Mirror quoted him as saying: "I'm interested in all the 3D stuff. If it could be filmed for 3D TV that would be fun.
"I love making Doctor Who and I get to be part of that 50th year which they'll do something mental for. You know it will be brilliant.
"It's very expensive, I don't know how they'd do it."
The show is even getting its own range of stamps to mark its half-century.
