Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special Breaks Records

Show lands a Guinness entry for most simulcasts, tops BBC America's historic highs

UPDATE: NCM and BBC America released box office figures for the movie theater screenings: the 3D-enabled event took in gross receipts of some $4.77 from about 320,000 tickets for a per-theater average of $7,155. That last figure is the most important one—for reference, it beats the stuffing out of every theater around Doctor Who's 660-theater range for the same weekend.
