Produced for the BBC by The Spinifex Group, the projection showcased an amazing visual feast of colour, light and movement as Doctor Who travelled through space and time, pursued by some of his greatest enemies.

The Doctor Who projections were displayed at six intervals throughout the evening featuring music from the TV show including I am the Doctor. A special pre-recorded webcast of the projection is available to watch until June 10 at www.youtube.com/vividsydney .

Destination NSW, which owns and manages Vivid Sydney, collaborated with BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand to create the evening of entertainment, which also included a special cinema screening of two episodes from the seventh series - Asylum of the Daleks and The Angels Take Manhattan.

The episodes see The Doctor confront two of his most terrifying foes -- the Daleks and the Weeping Angels -- and say a heart-breaking farewell to his companions Amy and Rory Pond.

Destination NSW CEO, Sandra Chipchase, said: "It's very exciting to be bringing Doctor Who fans this spectacular projection on Customs House. I'm sure people of all ages will be enthralled as The Doctor tackles his foes. Vivid Sydney has expanded significantly this year, and this collaboration is a fantastic example of how we are bringing more exciting experiences to Vivid festival-goers."

Sharon Wilson, Head of Marketing, Brands, Consumers & New Ventures, BBC ANZ, said: "The Spinifex Group has done a tremendous job of creating a display which makes the most of Customs House's amazing facade. It is fantastic to celebrate Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary at Vivid Sydney in such a special and unique way."

Vivid Sydney is in its 5th year and illuminates Sydney's harbour foreshore nightly from 6pm to midnight until June 10.
