Anniversary episode set 'in present-day London, the 16th century and outer-space' to be screened in 90 countries
A common way of marking a 50th birthday is to go somewhere special. But a famous figure marking his five decades of existence today has an unusually wide range of travel options. The Doctor, a Time Lord from the planet of Gallifrey, will celebrate by visiting present-day London, the 16th century and outer-space.
Or, at least, we think he will. Those details of the 50th birthday edition of Doctor Who come from a brief synopsis in Radio Times. In a repeat of the media blackout which prefaced the on-air announcement in August that Peter Capaldi will succeed Matt Smith in the role, the anniversary edition is not being shown to anyone before transmission of Saturday's 75-minute special at 7.50pm on BBC1.
