Doctor Who's 50th anniversary is slowly but surely coming up (in November 2013), and the man who plays the 11th incarnation of our favorite Time Lord, actor Matt Smith, would love it to be a one-off 3-D special.

Smith, who's very much excited about the upcoming 50th-anniversary celebration and who's already said he wants to get as many past Doctors as they can get in the special, still plans to be part of it.

He also thinks 3-D would be an excellent platform for the wacky sci-fi series that deals with traveling through time and space.

The 28-year-old actor told BANG showbiz that: "I love making Doctor Who, and I get to be part of that 50th year, which they'll do something mental for. You know it will be brilliant.

"I'm interested in all the 3-D stuff. If it could be filmed for 3-D TV, that would be fun, especially with Doctor Who, but it's very expensive. I don't know how they'd do it."

With all the recent BBC budget cuts, a 3-D special would be a bit unlikely, but it would certainly make for very arresting visuals. Can you just imagine seeing the TARDIS in all its 3-D glory? Excuse us while we're having a bit of a squee moment here ... okay, done.

Still, however they film the special, we can be sure of one thing: It's that Doctor Who showrunner and writer Steven Moffat will likely come up with a storyline that'll be impossibly bonkers and utterly mad and brilliant—all at the same time.

What do you think? Do you agree with Matt Smith and think that Doctor Who's 50th-anniversary special should be shot in 3-D?
