A worldwide simulcast on November 23rd for the the anniversary special
Global broadcasters yesterday agreed to the “simulcast” to avoid plot leakage.
The 3D episode goes out here on November 23 and is expected to air at 8pm on BBC1, so fans in LA will watch at noon while it airs in Sydney at 7am the next day.
It has been sold to 200 countries and is expected to reach more than 100 million viewers, making it the biggest-ever global drama simulcast.
