Today it was announced that Vivid Sydney 2013 will feature a spectacular celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. On Saturday 1 June, the grand façade of Customs House at Circular Quay will showcase an amazing visual feast of 3D-mapped projections of Doctor Who as he travels through space and time, pursued by some of his greatest enemies.

Destination NSW has collaborated with BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand to create the evening of entertainment which also includes a special cinema screening of two episodes from the series. The Doctor Who projections will be displayed at six intervals throughout the evening of Saturday June 1, featuring music from the TV show including I am the Doctor. The first projection will be shown at 6.50pm, then 10 minutes to every hour until midnight.
In addition to the special projection on Customs House, fans will also be able to take in special cinema screenings at nearby Dendy Opera Quays, featuring Asylum of the Daleks and The Angels Take Manhattan. There will also be a competition encouraging fans to submit a picture of themselves dressed as their favourite character to win a fantastic prize pack of Doctor Who themed merchandise.
Fans unable to travel to Sydney for the 50th Anniversary celebrations will still be able to join in the festivities at simultaneous screenings at 48 Dendy, Event and Village cinemas around Australia and New Zealand.
