Doctor Who Global Simulcast Details Revealed
Seventy five countries on six continents to see anniversary special together...
More details have been released about the global simulcast of the 50th anniversary edition of Doctor Who.
The one-off episode will be screened at the same time in 75 nations when it makes its debut on 23 November.
Six continents will see the show, with countries including Australia, the USA, Colombia, Brazil, Botswana, Myanmar, Canada and Mexico signed-up with BBC Worldwide to air it.
Billie Piper and John Hurt will also be making guest appearances in the special episode.
Show boss Steven Moffat said: "The Doctor has always been a time traveller - now he's travelling time zones. On the 23rd of November, it won't be the bad guys conquering the Earth - everywhere it will be The Day of the Doctor!"
And the CEO of BBC Worldwide, Tim Davie, said: "Few TV shows can still lay claim to being appointment viewing but Doctor Who takes this to another level. In its 50th Anniversary year we wanted to create a truly international event for Doctor Who fans in as many countries as possible and the simultaneous broadcast and cinema screening of the special across so many countries will make for a fitting birthday tribute to our Time Lord."
Peter Capaldi is to take over the controls of the Tardis later this year.
