Celebrate 50 years of 'Doctor Who' in 3D this week!

As previously reported, BBC is preparing 'Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor - 50th Anniversary Special - 3D' for Blu-ray on December 10.

Written by lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, 'Doctor Who: The Day of The Doctor' sees the Doctors (Matt Smith and David Tennant) embark on their greatest adventure across space and time. In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London's National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor's own dangerous past comes back to haunt him. The special also stars Jenna Coleman (as Clara, the Doctor's current Companion), Billie Piper (in a surprise role) and Jemma Redgrave as Kate Stewart, daughter of legendary Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack and supplements will include: Doctor Who Explained; Behind-the-Scenes Featurette; Two mini-episodes: "The Night of The Doctor" and "The Last Day"; San Diego Comic-Con Trailer; and Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Tribute Teaser.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD combo pack is $29.98.
