According to that bastion of exemplary news reporting, The Sun, global broadcasters have agreed to simulcast the 50th anniversary episode of DOCTOR WHO worldwide.
If this is true it would be the biggest-ever global simulcast of a drama with a potential audience in excess of 100 million viewers from some 200 territories. This astonishingly unprecedented move by the BBC allows fans across the planet to enjoy the unfurling of events simultaneously, with the intention that it would hopefully negate any internet plot spoilers sweetie.
As the episode is due to air at 8pm GMT, viewers in LA could be watching at midday, while fans in Sydney would get a 6am broadcast on Sunday morning (November 24).
As well as plans to simulcast this special landmark event, there are rumored plans to show the ninety minute episode in the cinema.
Just a thought but how were the BBC able to persuade foreign broadcasters to alter their schedules to allow such an event? It's a popular programme, but is it really that popular globally? Hmmm.
