A New Dimension: 50th Anniversary Doctor Who Will Be 3D

Doctor Who really will be venturing into new dimensions to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The BBC reports that Steve Moffat, the lead writer and executive producer on the show, revealed that the anniversary edition of the show will be shown in 3D, using some of the show’s 3D capacity, as a special treat for fans of Doctor Who. “It's about time,” said Moffat. “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.”

This isn’t the first time that Doctor Who has been shown in 3D, though. Back in 1993, the 30th anniversary was also marked with a 3D treatment, for a Children In Need special filmed in the EastEnders set. The Doctor Who announcement came as part of wider plans announced by the BBC, regarding its latest series of drama commissions. Also reported was the news that Call the Midwife will return in 2014 and a new 13-part drama series entitled Atlantis will take the slot previously occupied by Merlin.

The BBC’s controller of drama, Ben Stephenson, said that he aims to make the BBC “more British than ever” and would be “applying the Danny Boyle vision” to the broadcasting network’s output. He’s referring, of course, to the work that Boyle did on the Olympic opening ceremony and Stephenson has translated that as “a bold, adventurous, authorial approach that exports because of its Britishness not despite it.”
