The first solid details regarding the BBC sci-fi drama's celebratory episode - marking 50 years since the show began in November 1963 - emerged tonight (February 11).
Confirming the news, BBC One's official Twitter account wrote: "As part of the 50th Doctor Who celebrations, we'll be broadcasting the Time Lord and his TARDIS in 3D for the first time!"
Steven Moffat, Who's lead writer and executive producer, said: "It's about time. Technology has finally caught up with Doctor Who and your television is now bigger on the inside. A whole new dimension of adventure for the Doctor to explore."
The 3D special will be broadcast using some of the BBC's HD capacity.
Moffat recently admitted that he is aware of the expectation surrounding Doctor Who's 50th anniversary celebrations.
"I'm mostly excited [about the anniversary], a little bit nervous and aware of trying not to let people down," he said.
Doctor Who returns to BBC One with new episodes on March 30.
