You can’t have a few days off without the news catching up with you in this game, even if they’re technology-enforced – and with Doctor Who getting a USA air date, friends across the Atlantic will be seeing the current thrilling series sooner than expected.
Reported in several organs, FilmFodder.com relays that the series is set to air from July on Sci Fi, not long after the series ends in the UK, sensibly pointing out:
Just one word of warning – it takes an episode or three to ‘get’ the humor, especially if you are a US viewer. It’s worth the effort, though, as the show is strong. And, honestly, what else are you watching this summer?
VFXWorld meanwhile provides the date and time:
DOCTOR WHO will return for its third season on July 6, 2007, at 9:00 pm. David Tennant reprises his role as the mysterious, time-traveling Doctor. American audiences will meet the Doctorâ€™s brand-new sidekick, Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman), in the first official episode of the season, “Smith and Jones.” Season 3 will kick off on SCI FI with the 90-minute DOCTOR WHO CHRISTMAS SPECIAL: THE RUNAWAY BRIDE
Meanwhile Doctor Who himself David Tennant is due to star on perennial favourite Michael Parkinson’s show this Saturday evening, reports Outpost Gallifrey. The edition will also feature Amanda Holden and comedian David Mitchell (Peep Show/That Mitchell and Webb Look/those Apple ads).
