Doctor Who Goes HD

According to posters on Outpost Gallifrey, the new Doctor Who Magazine reports that Doctor Who will be going High Definition for the four specials that are seeing out the Tennant/Davies era.

The production team had always reportedly been resistant to the show going HD because of the extra costs and time involved in making the FX HD-compatible. They have also expressed concerns that the TARDIS set might not stand up to HD scrutiny. Which begs the question – is a new TARDIS interior being built? Or will we simply not see it in the specials, and we'll only see a new TARDIS interior with season five? One thing to bear in mind – the winners of the "Go on the set of Doctor Who" compo arranged for last year’s Children In Need were sworn to secrecy about about a few things. Maybe a new TARDIS set was one of them...?
