Presented live from London’s South Bank, Zoe Ball and Rick Edwards will be joined by Matt Smith and guests to discuss the Doctor's most epic adventure yet. A host of previous Doctors and their time-travelling companions will also take part in what is described as an ultimate celebration of 50 years of Doctor Who.
As well as all the gossip on The Day Of The Doctor, there will be exclusive interviews, monster moments and fans around the world giving their reaction, as they showcase how they are celebrating the special anniversary.
One Direction, the English-Irish pop boy band, will also be joining the party as they gate-crash the show live from LA to wish the Doctor a happy birthday.
Zai Bennett, Controller of BBC Three, says:
The 50th anniversary is going to be a huge party for Doctor Who and we're delighted that BBC Three will be able to give the fans all the backstage access to the stars at the hottest ticket in town.
