Karen on the Doctor and Rose in The Companions Special
If you missed last Sunday’s ‘Doctor Who: The Companions’ Special watch it at 6p EDT today on BBC America.
Because we’re not done with Doctor Who Premiere Weekend which apparently is now a thing, we have three new shows you should be ready for:
Doctor Who: The Companions - Sunday, March 31 at 7/6c
All-new special, Doctor Who: The Companions, premieres Sunday, March 31, 7:00pm ET/PT. As the Doctor’s newest companion, Clara Oswald, steps into the TARDIS, take a look back at previous companions that have won over the Doctor’s heart in Doctor Who: The Companions. Along the way, companions old and new talk about how the show has changed their lives, and how they’ve never quite managed to leave the TARDIS behind. Matt Smith and David Tennant are joined by fellow contributors including John Barrowman (Captain Jack), Arthur Darvill (Rory) and Noel Clarke (Mickey).
Doctor Who Revisited: Third Doctor Jon Pertwee - Sunday, March 31 at 8/7c
Take an in-depth look at the third incarnation of the truly timeless Time Lord, who brought action and stunts to the series. With exclusive interviews with lead writer & executive producer STEVEN MOFFAT, executive producer CAROLINE SKINNER, Tenth Doctor DAVID TENNANT, Season Six guest star HUGH BONNEVILLE (Downton Abbey) and more!
Classic Who: Spearhead from Space - immediately following ‘Revisited’
The TARDIS arrives on Earth in the middle of a meteorite shower and the Doctor is found by UNIT troops and taken to a nearby hospital. The Brigadier is faced with having to cope not only with the mysterious meteorites but also with Ransome, an ex-employee of a local plastics factory, who claims he has seen a walking mannequin.
Just a reminder that this is happening Saturday night on BBC America in the US and SPACE in Canada(!)
Leave the beach towel at home and take a trip to the end of the Earth — literally. From the Starship UK to one very haunted hotel, you won’t find the destinations of Doctor Who in any guidebook. Join celebrity Whovians as they visit some of the most memorable locations visited by The Doctor and his companions.
What is TIMEY-WIMEY? Ask ARTHUR DARVILL (Rory Williams): “It might make you go a bit wibbly-wobbly… but in a good way!”
Watch the World Premiere of an All New Special, THE TIMEY-WIMEY OF DOCTOR WHO *** Saturday Aug 18 at 9/8c *** immediately followed by the World Premiere of THE NERDIST: TRIBUTE TO TIME TRAVEL at 10/9c, only on BBC America.
When the Doctor’s around, tomorrow is yesterday, yesterday is tomorrow and 18th century France is in your fireplace. Confused yet?
Join celebrity Whovians - 30 Rock’s Scott Adsit, comedian Eugene Mirman, BuzzFeed’s Jack Shepherd, plus Alison Haislip, Natalie Morales, Wired’s Adam Rogers and Nerdist’s Jonah Ray and Chloe Dykstra - as they try to make sense of all the “wibbly wobbly, timey-wimey… stuff.”
If you’re looking for the Doctor Who Specials you can find them in the iTunes (US) store.
We’re trying to find out whether these will be made available internationally.
More info to come.

hello-i-must-be-going asked: I forgot to set my DVR to record The Science of Doctor Who tonight, will it be on again anywhere?
It’ll be on again tonight at
1am 12am EDT!
I’m thinking of becoming a scientist just so I can make the things from Doctor Who real.
They barely get to scratch the surface. Each of these topics could be its own special. xD
Science fiction often provides the imaginative leap which drives science fact into making things happen for real. And in return, science fact opens doors into rooms science fiction writers never imagined were there. It’s an almost symbiotic relationship (assuming the scientists are the sort that enjoy Doctor Who as entertainment and don’t hoot at the physical impossibilities on display).With Steven Moffat and celebrity fans looking at The Science of Doctor Who this Saturday (August 4) on BBC AMERICA, we present five things that exist as fanciful astonishments in the Whoniverse, but could also easily (and in some cases DO easily) exist in our real world…

(And remember that the first of four Doctor Who Specials premieres this Saturday at 9pm EDT/6pm PDT on BBC America.
It’s a big day for Doctor Who fans, who are still reeling from the new trailer for the upcoming season.
While we’re waiting for those episodes to air, BBC America has scheduled a fun-sounding special called The Science of Doctor Who.
