Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary special episode will reportedly simulcast worldwide.
Broadcasters yesterday agreed to the “simulcast” to avoid plot leakage.
According to the Sun , global broadcasters have agreed to show the episode at the same time to avoid any leaks.
It’s thought that the special episode is due to air on November 23 on BBC1 at 8pm.
It will be the biggest-ever global simulcast of a drama and could fetch more than 100 million viewers from some 200 territories.
The move comes amid fears that the plot will be easily accessible via the internet once the landmark episode is broadcast on BBC One.
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).
The simulcast of the 90-minute episode on TV would be in addition to plans to show the 3D episode in cinemas.
Long-running enemies the Daleks, are set to return for the 50th anniversary episode.
It will also feature previous Doctor David Tennant, his companion Billie Piper and John Hurt — playing a previously unseen regeneration of the time traveller.
