This tram is bigger on the inside:
The 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is fast approaching, and fans are getting into a fervour.
Normally it’s only sports fans who wake up early to watch live TV. Sci-fi fans? Not so much.
All that will change next Sunday morning, when the special anniversary episode Day Of The Doctor will simulcast in Australia and in 70+ other countries around the world. On the east coast it’s 6:50am AEDT, which is pretty civilised (matching the UK time of 7:50pm on Saturday).
It’ll air again on Sunday night at 7:30pm on ABC1 for those who don’t want to get up early, followed by a dramatisation of the creation of the TV series, airing straight after it (trailer). Then it’ll be shown again on ABC2 on Monday, at 7:30pm and 11:20pm.
The special episode will also be shown in 3D at many cinemas next Sunday, including most Hoyts and Village outlets.
There’s been an early teaser/trailer:
…an actual trailer:
…and I can’t embed it in this page, but there’s also a mini-episode which brought a huge surprise for regular viewers of the show.
Will I be getting up early next Sunday to watch? Oh yes!
