August 27th. That’s going to be one hell of a day, as Doctor Who returns to our screens to not only wrap up the “revelation of River Song” two parter but also to continue his mad adventures across all of time and space. The TARDIS crew are going to be facing Hitler, mad hotels, Cybermen, weeping Angels and maybe the Daleks as well…
To honour the return of the good Doctor and his crew, BBC America will air three special episodes looking at different aspects of Doctor Who!
Best of the Doctor (you can work out what that one’s about) will be shown two Saturdays (August 13th) before Let’s Kill Hitler and will be shown at 9pm. Best of the Monsters will look at the child of Gallifrey’s arch rivals that he has encountered in the many Universes that he’s been to and will air a week after Best of the Doctor in the same timeslot. The final special, Best of the Companions, will be shown at 9pm on August 27th, straight after Let’s Kill Hitler.
Whether these special documentaries will be shown in the UK is yet to be confirmed.
What’s interesting however, is the picture that’s supplied with the link. Not only do we have a Silent, Rory, Amy, River and the impossible Astronaut but there is also a mysterious and ominous looking pyramid that’s bound to play a big part in the Series 6 finale. The Doctor is also sporting a longer looking jacket making him look a little bit like his predecessor.
