BBC Says Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary Will Be ‘As Big As Olympics And Jubilee’

Executive of the BBC, Ben Stephenson, has said that he thinks the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who could be as big as both the 2012 London Olympics AND the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee!

Stephenson, the BBC’s head of drama, promised that the 60 minute special, due to be broadcast in 3D for the first time, would be “absoloutley enormous” and a “very, very, big event!”

“Last year we had the wonderful Jubilee and the wonderful Olympics,” he said. ‘This year we have the opportunity to make drama the landmark event for the BBC. Everyone has a connection to Doctor Who and we can do something really spectacular with it.”
