The executive producer suggested that the length of the episode has yet to be decided.

When asked by Doctor Who Magazine, Moffat said: "People keep asking how long the anniversary special is, and it's a fair question. I don't actually know, because the answer is, it's as long as it needs to be.

"The script is quite long though. I'm looking at it now. Ooh, that's quite long."

The episode is expected to get a limited worldwide cinema release.
