The 50th Anniversary episode of Doctor Who will see the timelord exploring an as-yet uncharted dimension, thanks to the BBC deciding to film the hour-long special of the sci-fi pantomime in 3D.

If you managed to avoid the torrent of manufacturer hype around 3D televisions, you'll still be able to see the Doctor waving his sonic screwdriver out of the screen in cinemas. The BBC is still "working out the logistics" of how to distribute the 3D special in cinemas without appearing to devalue the TV experience, but it should happen.

The 50th anniversary of the time travelling show hits screens this November, with the special one-off adventure broadcast on November 23rd on all the usual frequencies. [BBC via io9]
