Celebrate The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!

The World Watches Doctor Who Simultaneously!

Reports in the press today suggest that Doctor Who will be aired simultaneously around the world on November 23rd’s 50th anniversary!

Celebrate The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!

In an attempt to break the cycle of spoilers and downloads, the BBC is apparently arranging with BBC America and ABC in Australia to air the episode – which stars Matt Smith, David Tennant, John Hurt, Billie Piper and Jenna-Louise Coleman (and perhaps even Paul McGann) – to schedule the show in simulcast time slots.

What this means for international viewers – if the reports are accurate – is that while UK viewers should be able to tune in around 7pm (this is a guess, of course!) those in LA could be watching at midday, and those in Australia (say Sydney) would need to get up early and enjoy the celebratory episode with their Vegemite on toast on the morning of Sunday November 24th.

This is pretty exciting, as their have been very few simulcasts of non-sporting events over the years, and simultaneously screening the same episode of the same show in several countries at the same time is virtually unheard of…
