Content Editor

Whovians of the world can breathe a sigh of relief. The 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who will be simulcast thanks to global broadcasters coming to an arrangement.

The broadcasters have come to an agreement which means that everyone will watch the episode at the same time, and this move means that fans from outside the UK will not get any leaks prior to their broadcast.

The producers have also said that the move will allow the fans to celebrate the monumental anniversary as a collective. The simultaneous  broadcast of the highly anticipated 90 minute special mean that viewing figures could reach 100 million viewers and become the biggest global simulcast.

As the episode will be aired in the evening in the UK, US viewers will be watching around lunchtime whereas the Australian fans be watching the episode in the early hours of Sunday morning (24 November).

Doctor Who joins such iconic shows as Lost and Fringe who have simulcast final episodes to ensure nothing was ruined.

The simulcast for TV audiences is an addition to the plans to show a 3D version in cinemas.

Not much is known about the anniversary episode however we do know that the Daleks will be returning in the episode as will David Tennant and Billie Piper.

The 50th Anniversary Episode of Doctor Who will be broadcast on 23 November. So only 120 days to go!!!!
