BBC America is cranking event programming up a notch, as the network plans a global simulcast of “Doctor Who’s” 50th anniversary special for next month.

On November 23 (in the U.S.), BBC will broadcast “The Day of the Doctor” simultaneously to millions of viewers in countries including Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Mexico, and the U.K., along with the States. Fans will be able to watch the episode at the same time irrespective of time zones, though the actual airtime has yet to be announced.

“Few TV shows can still lay claim to being appointment viewing but ‘Doctor Whotakes this to another level,” said Tim Davie, topper of BBC Worldwide. “In its 50th Anniversary year we wanted to create a truly international event for ‘Doctor Who’ fans in as many countries as possible and the simultaneous broadcast and cinema screening of the special across so many countries will make for a fitting birthday tribute to our Time Lord.”
