Denmark is the latest country to have scheduled the 3D version of the Series 8 finale Dark Water & Death in Heaven in cinemas. The two episodes, plus the Series 9 preview, will be shown at Cinemaxx cinemas in Copenhagen, Odense and Aarhus on the 16th September (two showings at 6:00pm and 8:45pm).

Doctor Who: Dark Water and Death in Heaven 3D - poster (Credit: BBC)Er du fan af den udødelige engelske tv-serie 'Doctor Who'? Så er du det, man kalder en “whovian”, og der er godt nyt til dig! BBC og CinemaxX fortsætter deres samarbejde, når de onsdag den 16. september blænder op for en 3D-visning af de dramatiske sidste to afsnit af seriens sæson 8 samt en aldrig før vist "prequel" til sæson 9's første afsnit. Udover det bliver doktoren selv, Peter Capaldi, og den kvindelige hovedrolle, Clara, spillet af Jenna Coleman, interviewet af skuespiller Wil Wheaton.

'Doctor Who' er en institution i britisk kultur og er blevet kult i det meste af den vestlige verden. Serien blev skabt i 1963 og kørte uafbrudt indtil 1989. I 1996 blev den forsøgt genoplivet, men først i 2005 lykkedes det, og den nuværende serie kører altså nu på 9. sæson.

Selve figuren, som bare omtales som The Doctor, er et tidsrejsende rumvæsen i menneskekrop, en såkaldt Time Lord fra planeten Gallifrey. Han flygtede i en TARDIS tidsmaskine - "Time and Relative Dimension In Space" - som er en kamæleon-maskine, der kan påtage sig diverse lokale objekters udseende. Men på grund af en fejl i TARDIS' "kamæleon-kredsløb" ligner tidsmaskinen nu og for evigt en blå, engelsk politiboks - et af de ikoniske billeder fra serien.

Denmark joins the United States (Fathom Events) and Canada (Front Row Centre Events/Cineplex Entertainment) in presenting the episodes in 3D in cinema.

The episodes are not currently planned to be shown in the United Kingdom, with a quote from BBC Worldwide to Sci-Fi Bulletin stating: “Due to the number of events taking place for Doctor Who this year including the Symphonic Spectacular and the Doctor Who Festival, we decided against showing the episodes in UK cinema."


The 3D special is expected to be released on Blu-ray in North America on 22nd September:
