This thrilling and exhaustive account of Doctor Who’s troubled relationship with the silver screen is now available to purchase in print and Kindle formats.

Charles Norton’s book Now on the Big Screeen: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to Doctor Who at the Cinema recently gained column inches with the revelation that Michael Jackson was once considered for the role of The Doctor – and the discoveries come in thick and fast from thereon in. Who knew, for instance, that Abominable Snowmen scribe Mervyn Haisman tried taking his Yeti to Disney?

After covering Peter Cushing’s fabulous, Dalek-centric outings from the ’60s, Norton takes us on a journey into the realm of what might have been…

From Tom Baker and Ian Marter’s Doctor Who meets Scratchman to Douglas Adams’ Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen, through to the TV Movie and beyond, Now on the Big Screen takes its readers through stages of intrigue, wonder and relief, as films, ultimately never made, are recreated in Norton’s prose.

In the weeks (!) leading up to The Day of the Doctor’s cinematic release, Now on the Big Screen offers fans the chance to explore an essential, if rarely discussed, aspect of the show’s history.

Thanks for the heads-up; the book sounds fantastic.

Is this still happening? I was under the impression those plans had been abandoned, but I'd love to be wrong - especially if I were among the fortunate viewers who'd get to experience it this way, but I'd also read that the theatrical screening was planned only for the UK anyway (I'm in the US). What's the current info on the screenings?

The 50th Anniversary episode The Day of the Doctor will be screened in 3D in cinemas across the UK, Ireland, the US, Canada, Germany and Russia, doctorwho.tv can reveal.

The cinema screenings will take place the same time as the UK TV broadcast on BBC One on 23rd November 2013, giving fans another unique opportunity to be part of a truly global celebration for the iconic British drama series.

216 VUE, Cineworld, Odeon, BFI and Picturehouse cinemas in the UK and Ireland have already confirmed their participation, with tickets for the anniversary screening set to go on sale this Friday October 25th at 9am. Locations include London, Birmingham, Belfast, Dublin, Liverpool, Cardiff and Edinburgh.

Internationally, German, Russian, American* and Canadian* fans will be able to gather in cinemas to enjoy the simulcast release with approximately 30 cinemas in Germany and up to 50 theatres debuting the episode in Russia. The celebrations will cross time (and space) zones travelling over the equator to New Zealand and Australia where fans will have a choice of 106 cinemas across both countries to view the episode in 3D on the big screen on the 24th November, following the simulcast TV broadcast earlier in the morning.

Head over to our Where To Watch The Day of the Doctor map to find participating cinemas chains. More cinemas will be added to the map as they’re confirmed, so keep checking back.

In addition to Matt Smith, the one-off special, entitled The Day of the Doctor stars former Time Lord David Tennant and Jenna Coleman, with Billie Piper and John Hurt
