BBC Airing 'Doctor Who' 50th Anniversary Special in 3D

Publish date:

Even after deciding to shelve future 3D productions, the BBC plans on airing the 50th anniversary special of its blockbuster sci-fi series Doctor Who in 3D later this month.

Says series producer Marcus Wilson to The Hollywood Reporter, "The BBC has done a lot in that [trial] period and it is responsible of the BBC to check the format out rather than just launch with open ended commitment. I don't think we are quite at a stage in terms of budget or in ease of workflow where a 2D and 3D series production would work, but creatively 3D does add to the story. When the time is right we'll attack 3D again.”
