Put that in your TARDIS and smoke it!

Who says that studio execs don’t pay attention to the number of illegal downloads that are occurring with their TV programs?

November 23, 2013, will be The Day of the Doctor, according to Stephen Moffat, show-runner and exec producer of the longest-running sci-fi based TV series on the planet. That is the day that the program’s 50th anniversary show will be broadcast worldwide. The Day of the Doctor is the title of the special episode. 

Additionally, more than 20,000 fans of the show will unite at London’s ExCel for the official celebration of the event.

Straight from the source’s mouth….

 ….Tim Davie, CEO of BBC Worldwide comments: ”Few TV shows can still lay claim to being appointment viewing but Doctor Who takes this to another level. In its 50th anniversary year we wanted to create a truly international event for Doctor Who fans in as many countries as possible and the simultaneous broadcast and cinema screening of the special across so many countries will make for a fitting birthday tribute to our Time Lord.”
