thymine dioxygenase activity

Known as: 5-hydroxy-methyluracil dioxygenase activity, thymine,2-oxoglutarate:oxygen oxidoreductase (7-hydroxylating), thymine,2-oxoglutarate dioxygenase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: thymine + 2-oxoglutarate + O2 = 5-hydroxymethyluracil + succinate + CO2. [EC:1.14.11.6, MetaCyc:THYMINE-DIOXYGENASE-RXN]
