BBC America Picks Up Who

BBC America have planned a week of High Definition content for July – and the highlight is the recent Easter Special Planet of the Dead, which will be followed by the subsequent 2010 Doctor Who specials.

Joining Doctor Who on BBC America wll be Primeval, Being Human and editions of non-genre programming such as Top Gear and the overrated Gavin and Stacey.

BBC America chief Garth Ancier is extremely happy with the HD week of sci fi shows – which also includes Torchwood: Children of Earth – and concludes with Doctor Who’s Easter Special on July 26th:

“Then on Sunday, we’ll have the very first Doctor Who shot in HD, so it’s a pretty cool week of stuff,”

So the obvious question is this – has the Sci Fi Channel had its day as far as Doctor Who is concerned?
