"Doctor Who" 50th Anniversary Celebration Event to Include BBC AMERICA Special Screening at Wizard World Austin Comic Con on November 23

Wizard World Austin Comic Con will host a "Doctor Who" 50th Anniversary Celebration that will include a special screening of "Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor" on Nov. 23, to be shown at Austin Convention Center in conjunction with simulcast on BBC AMERICA and in over 75 Countries.

New York, NY, November 13, 2013 --(PR.com )-- For a half-century, TV viewers across the world have been captivated by Doctor Who, the longest running and most successful sci-fi series ever. In collaboration with BBC AMERICA, Wizard World Austin Comic Con fans will enjoy the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Celebration Fan Event on Saturday, November 23. The event is part of the international celebration in which, for the first time ever, the series’ 50th Anniversary special, Doctor Who: The Day of The Doctor, will be simulcast on BBC AMERICA and to millions of fans in over 75 countries.

The Wizard World Austin Comic Con Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Celebration Event will begin on Saturday, November 23 with a fan meetup at 1:00pm CT followed by the simulcast screening at 1:50pm CT in Ballroom D at the Austin Convention Center. The Celebration is open to all Austin Comic Con attendees, with space limited to the capacity of the hall.

The centerpiece of BBC AMERICA’s Doctor Who 50th Anniversary celebrations is the global simulcast of Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat. BBC AMERICA is celebrating the anniversary this month with new programming including specials and marathons. For broadcast times, visit BBCAmerica.com. In the anniversary special, The Doctors (Matt Smith, 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 stars Matt Smith, David Tennant, Jenna Coleman, with Billie Piper and John Hurt. Watch trailer here.

“We are incredibly excited to be working with BBC AMERICA in bringing the simulcast screening of the 50th Anniversary special, Doctor Who: The Day of The Doctor, to the fans at Austin Comic Con,” said John Macaluso, Wizard World Chairman & CEO. “Our attendees have loved Doctor Who for so many years, and this remarkable screening is just the sort of high-quality programming we strive to deliver.”

Doctor Who is BBC AMERICA’s highest rated series and received an Institutional Peabody Award earlier this year. Since 1963, Doctor Who has been one of the best loved dramas and certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful sci-fi series ever.

Eisner Award Hall of Famer Stan Lee, Norman Reedus of “The Walking Dead,” WWE® Superstar John Cena® and “Star Trek” captains William Shatner and Scott Bakula are among the top celebrities scheduled to attend Wizard World Austin Comic Con, November 22-24 at the Austin Convention Center Center. The standout roster will also include Bruce Campbell of Evil Dead, Erica Durance of “Smallville” and “Saving Hope,” Jewel Staite of “Firefly,” The Karate Kid Ralph Macchio, “Machete Kills” director Robert Rodriguez and many others. It is the eighth and final event in the 2013 series produced by Wizard World, Inc.
