3 Chances to See Planet of the Dead

Big plans over the Easter Weekend? Not sure if you will catch Planet of the Dead‘s premier? Worry not, for the Doctor Who Easter Special is making it’s presence felt very heavily over the Bank Holiday weekend.

First of all there’s the broadcast – which you should know by now is scheduled for 6.45pm BBC One on Saturday evening. This runs simoultaneously on BBC HD. Doctor Who Confidential follows on BBC Three at 8.30pm.

The second showing comes on Easter Sunday at 7pm on BBC Three – this showing has the bonus benefit of a commentary by David Tennant, Julie Gardner and director James Strong accessible via the red button.

Finally if you’ve been lubricating your neck’s too much over the weekend and have made it to Easter Monday without catching Planet of the Dead, there’s one last chance (for now…) to see it at 5pm on BBC One.
