The global simulcast of "The Day of the Doctor" probably always meant that Australia would be seeing it at a ridiculous time, so it could have been a lot worse. The 50th anniversary episode will be screened at 6.50am AEDT on ABC1 -- 5.50am in Queensland, 5.20am in the Northern Territory, 6.20am in South Australia and 3.50am in Western Australia on Sunday, 24 November.

For anyone who doesn't want to get up at the crack of dawn to watch, the episode will be re-aired at 7.30pm on ABC1 in all states.

For everyone who may be elsewhere, the official screening time is 7.50am GMT on Saturday, 23 November. You can work out what time that will be in your zone using an online time converter.

The 75-minute special will star Matt Smith, his predecessor David Tennant, new companion Jenna Coleman, Billie Piper and the fabulous John Hurt as a previously unseen incarnation of the time-travelling Gallifreyan.

The second screening at 7.30pm will be followed by a Doctor Who special at 8.45pm: "Doctor Who: An Adventure in Space and Time". It will take viewers back to 1963 to the show's earliest beginnings for the chronicle of how the beloved show came into being.
