Jon Penn, Managing Director, BBC Worldwide ANZ, said:
The ABC has been the home of Doctor Who in Australia for all of its record-breaking 50 year history. I am delighted to be partnering again as we offer fans a chance to celebrate this important anniversary and to experience some of the wonderful history of this iconic and classic - BBC series.
Mark Scott, ABC's Managing Director, said:
I believe that in the long history of the ABC, there has only ever been one program for which we believed the Australian rights must cover all time and space dimensions—and that is the magnificent Doctor Who.
