The new Doctor Who trailer set for broadcast on Saturday has been optimised for viewing at cinemas in 3D, reports Broadcastnow.co.uk.
A 40-second 3D trailer has been commissioned, a conversion of the 2D trailer (scheduled for Saturday BBC One and www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho) on that heralds the arrival Matt Smith as the Doctor. Effects and grading work has been completed by The Mill, and the trailer is planned to be shown in cinemas and external promotional screening events across the country in March – under the banner of â€œMeet a Monsterâ€.
The BBC evidently think that Doctor Who and 3D go hand-in-hand – it’s fair to say though that the trailer is likely to be better received than 1993′s Children in Need special Dimensions in Time.
â€œDoctor Who is the appropriate vehicle for 3D. It just fits. Itâ€™s a great way to introduce and showcase the new Doctor to younger viewers.
Meanwhile, anyone wanting to know what time they should tune in to Saturday’s trailer readon on -Â Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell has revealed on Twitter:
“I gather that Doctor Who fans should be watching BBC1 at 18.30 this Saturday, during the break between programmes.”
This places the trailer between Total Wipeout and the charity show Let’s Dance for Sport Relief.
