Planet of the Dead Schedule Confirmed

The BBC have confirmed the broadcast data and time for Planet of the Dead – and as widely expected (but conversely to SKY Magazine’s listing it is Easter Saturday!)

So gird your loins, collect your figures together and place an appropriately sized pedestal or coffee table close to your favourite chair and stock up with Easter eggs, a nice glass of something wet and alcoholic (fuit based drink for the ladies) and get set for the brief, one-night-only return of Doctor Who with Planet of the Dead!

With broadcast set for Saturday 11th April, and kicking off at 6.45pm, Planet of the Dead is a full hour of Doctor Who on a desert planet. The trailer looks rather filmicly marvellous, and Kasterborous Towers is in full carnival mood in anticipation!

The sight of Michelle Ryan in a nice tight black outfit is more than enough to get K Towers in the mood for Doctor Who – and with no more Who until Christmas, this Easter special is going to be watched and rewatched…

In the meantime, check out the trailer and galleries for Planet of the Dead – and let the excitement build!
