Matt Smith hopes for 3D special to mark Doctor Who 50th anniversary

Matt Smith{jcomments on}Matt Smith hopes the BBC will film a 3D special to mark Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary in 2013.

The actor had previously stated the anniversary should be mark in a special way and now he hopes that the BBC will opt for a 3D special to mark the land-stone anniversary.

“I’m interested in all the 3D stuff. If it could be filmed for 3D TV that would be fun, especially with Doctor Who. I love making Doctor Who and I get to be part of that 50th year which they’ll do something mental for. You know it will be brilliant….but it’s very expensive. I don’t know how they’d do it.” – Matt Smith speaking to Bang Showbiz

Doctor Who’s 10th and 20th anniversaries were marked with so-called ‘multi-doctor’ stories in which previous actors who played the Time Lord – and actors who played associated companions – reprised their David Tennantroles. Fans are hopeful that the 50th anniversary will continue that tradition and Matt Smith has already indicated he would be up for a multi-doctor story.

However, while his predecessor, David Tennant, has indicated he would be willing to return to the series 9th Doctor actor Christopher Eccleston – who played the Doctor for one season in 2005 – has gone on record saying he wouldn’t be willing to return. As for the remaining original series actors, who played the character, Peter Davison has already reprised his role of the 5th Doctor for a Children in Need special, Time Crash, in 2007 which was penned by Steven Moffat.

Fans hope that Davison along with Tom Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Colin Baker – as well as Paul McGann, star of the 1996 television movie – will be involved in the 50th anniversary.
