So there’s a new BBC America Doctor Who Special about all the times the show has been set in the U.S. It’s called DOCTOR WHO IN THE U.S. (get it?) YouTube description here:
He’s the British icon Americans have fallen in love with.
Now, don’t miss an All New World Premiere Special DOCTOR WHO IN THE U.S. *** Saturday Sept 29 at 8/7c *** immediately followed by the DOCTOR WHO Fall Season Finale “The Angels Take Manhattan” at 9/8c.
We’ll uncover the Doctor’s special relationship with the U.S., from Daleks on the streets of New York to robot gunslingers in the Wild West. The special includes behind-the-scenes reports from the Doctor’s death in Monument Valley, Utah and the Weeping Angels’ invasion of Manhattan and looks back with contributions from current Doctor MATT SMITH, the Tenth Doctor DAVID TENNANT, plus JOHN BARROWMAN (Captain Jack Harkness), ARTHUR DARVILL (Rory Williams), NOEL CLARKE (Mickey) and PETER PURVES (Steven, a companion of the very First Doctor).
btw, the YouTube comment thread is all kinds of flamey flame right now. Apparently Doctor Who is being taken over by America.
We’re thinking of telling them that the CW is going to do their own version of the show starring two Americans who battle otherworldy beings. Instead of the TARDIS, they’ll travel around in an American muscle car. They’ll…. wait a second!!!!!
