50th Anniversary Filming Moves
Doctor Who Magazine originally reported that the 50th anniversary special would begin filming today. However, it has subsequently come to light that shooting has been moved and will now start in April.
DWM’s Tom Spilsbury noted on Twitter that the date changed after the magazine went to press.
A BBC source apparently told The Mirror in an article published today: “Filming for the anniversary episode starts in two weeks and there is a real buzz about it, especially because it will be in 3D.”
They also claim: “It is being planned as a TV movie to mark 50 years of the show. It will be the highlight of the celebrations. The episode has been written but we don’t really know yet whether it will be an hour, 75 minutes or 90 minutes.”
Adding: “The movie-length episode will be shown at cinemas in Britain and around the world at the same time as it is screened on BBC1 in November”.
