The special extended episode, due to air on November 23 (UK), includes Matt Smith, David Tennant, Jenna Coleman, Billie Piper, John Hurt and Joanna Page.
The special was shot earlier this year at BBC Cymru Wales’ Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff and across South Wales. Filming also took place at the Tower of London as well as in Trafalgar Square for a huge stunt, which saw Matt Smith dangling from a TARDIS alongside Nelson’s Column.
The Daleks are the second monster to be announced for the 50th and will join the shape shifting Zygons, which have only appeared in the show once before in 1975.
However while media reports confirm a global simultaneous broadcast, it isn’t clear if that means a literal simultaneous broadcast, or same day broadcast. A primetime UK broadcast on November 23 would be around 6am AEDT Sunday November 24 in Australia (the final week of TV ratings). But there’s every possibility ABC could join a simultaneous broadcast with a primetime repeat, a strategy that has been working well for some international shows on Foxtel.
