Matt Smith Dreams of the Third Dimension

The relationship between Doctor Who and 3-D has been a bit chequered (Dimensions in Time BOO! Doctor Who Experience YAY!) so we’ll hold our enthusiasm at: ‘Oh, its stopped raining’ levels for now rather than: ‘This is the greatest thing since Jesus’ hovercraft’ levels that Matt Smith has for the mere suggestion that the Fiftieth Anniversary should include a part where things fly towards your face.

Smith told Bang! Showbiz  that he was interested in seeing the what the Doctor Who boffins could do with the technology:

“If it could be filmed for 3-D TV that would be fun, especially with Doctor Who,  but it’s very expensive. I don’t know how they’d do it.”

The short answer would probably be: ‘they wouldn’t’ quickly followed by an argument about justifying spending so much money on 3-D when only a tiny percentage (admittedly a growing percentage) of people own a 3-D TV.

The alternative (apart from the cast going into every Doctor Who-loving home across the world and acting out a small scene live in ‘3-D’) would be the a similar model to that of Dimensions in Time (a  free giveaway of ineffectual 3-D glasses resulting in eye strain across the world) And nothing says ‘Party!’ like eyestrain.

Looking towards the immediate 2-D future Matt refused to be drawn any further on the scheduling confusion surrounding Doctor Who in 2012:

“For me, it’s just that I know that I’m going to shoot 14 episodes, of which I’ll be in all of them. How they’ll actually schedule it, I don’t know. But all I know is that we start in February.”

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
