BBC sci-fi drama Doctor Who will gain a 3D episode to celebrate its 50th anniversary, which was first broadcast in November 1963.
BBC confirmed the news on the BBC ONE official twitter page, stating; 'As part of the 50th Doctor Who celebrations, we'll be broadcasting the Time Lord and his TARDIS in 3D for the first time!'
Doctor Who's lead writer and executive producer commented on the news and said; 'It's about time. Technology has finally caught up with Doctor Who and your television is now bigger on the inside. A whole new dimension of adventure for the Doctor to explore.'
This is not the first time that viewers have been able to watch the Doctor in 3D, for the 30th anniversary it was marked with a 3D story, Dimensions in Time, broadcast as part of Children In Need in 1993.
The two-part adventure was filmed on EastEnders' Albert Square set, and featured Doctor Who stars past and present, as well as cast members from the BBC soap.
The series will begin shooting in Wales and Morocco in April.
