Doctor Who Special To Be Aired Simultaneously Around the Globe

idiot

Here's some news that will delight Whovians and viewers afraid of spoilers: The "Doctor Who" 50th Anniversary special will air at the same time around the world.

According to a Radio Times report, which the official "Doctor Who" Tumblr shared, global broadcasters agreed to air the 3D special at the same time to avoid spoilers.

If the 50th anniversary special airs at 7 p.m. in the UK, it will air at 2 p.m. on the East Coast and 11 a.m. on the West Coast.

“It’s always been our ambition to work with our broadcast partners so that international 'Doctor Who' fans can enjoy the 50th Anniversary special at the same time as the UK. We’ll have more details soon about our very exciting global plans for November," BBC Worldwide said in a statement.

The "Doctor Who" 50th anniversary special will unite current stars Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman with previous series stars David Tennant and Billie Piper. Smith will depart the series following the annual "Doctor Who" Christmas special. There's been no word on his replacement.

The "Doctor Who" 50th anniversary special will air on Saturday, November 23.
