Lincoln Odeon hosts 3D Doctor Who anniversary episode

Special viewing: Doctor Who fans can celebrate the 50th anniversary showing in style at Lincoln Odeon this weekend.

While Whovians across the city prepare for the 50th anniversary Doctor Who episode this week, Lincoln Odeon will be hosting a special airing of the TV show too.

Doctor Who: The Day Of The Doctor 3D will air at the cinema from 7.30pm on Saturday, November 23, to run simultaneously to the BBC broadcast.

The episode is billed to be one of the most explosive in the series, featuring the current Doctor, Matt Smith, alongside past actors of the role David Tennant and John Hurt. Also featuring in the episode are Jenna Coleman and Billie Piper.

The 80-minute episode will apparently reveal to fans the Doctor’s dark and dangerous past.

Odeon will also repeat the same episode at the later time of 9.30pm for anyone who missed the original showing.

Doctor Who is a BBC show centring around the adventures of a Time Lord who can travel across the universe in a police box known as TARDIS.

The programme first aired in 1963, and has since seen 11 actors take on the role of the Doctor, with Peter Capaldi penned to become number 12 later in the year.

The award-winning show is internationally popular, and now seen as a large part of British culture, with a number of spinoff and charity shows, conventions and even placement in museums.

You can book your place to watch the episode at the Odeon on the cinema’s website.
