Doctor Who will be evading his greatest villains on the side of one of Sydney’s iconic buildings for one night in June.

As part of Vivid Sydney, 3D-mapped projections of classic and contemporary Doctor Who action will be screened onto the grand façade of Customs House, Circular Quay,  on June 1.

The one-night installation, devised by Australian creatives The Spinifex Group, marks the 50th anniversary of the BBC television program.

There will be six shows on the Saturday night, the first  at 6.50pm, then 10 minutes to every hour until midnight, featuring music from the TV show including that iconic theme.

Destination NSW’s CEO, Sandra Chipchase, said: “Our goal is to ensure Vivid Sydney surprises every year. The Doctor Who projections will entertain audiences ranging from dedicated science-fiction fans through to every family who has ever enjoyed an episode together.”

Hardcore fans unable to attend the seven-metre high projections can get their Doctor fill in special cinema screenings at the nearby Dendy Opera Quays on the night. Dendy and Event cinemas around Australia will also be screening Doctor Who events to celebrate the anniversary.
