ABC To Air Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Episode Live

Australia’s ABC will now officially be getting in on the global television event that is the 50th Anniversary episode of Doctor Who, promising to show it live on ABC 1 at the same time as the rest of the world.

The Day Of The Doctor is the 50th anniversary episode starring Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman and past stars David Tennant and Billie Piper.

The ABC has today promised to air the episode live on ABC1 with the rest of the world on Sunday 24 November. The time is yet to be confirmed, but we’ll be watching at the same time as 75 other countries around the world. Take that, pirates!

To celebrate the upcoming release of the 50th anniversary ep, the ABC will stuff its iView platform full of retro Doctor Who goodness, with a hand-picked crop of 47 classic Who adventures.

ABC2 will air a series of Doctor Who specials between now and the 50th anniversary of the show.

It’s all Who-ppening!
