DOCTOR WHO Revisited: PETER DAVISON - May 26 BBC AMERICA
2013 is DOCTOR WHO’s 50th Anniversary. Each month, BBC AMERICA takes the TARDIS back in time with Brand New Specials on all eleven Doctors. This month, it’s Fifth Doctor PETER DAVISON!
Take an in-depth look at the fifth incarnation of the truly timeless Time Lord, played by the youngest actor in the part until current Doctor Matt Smith debuted in 2010. With exclusive interviews with lead writer and executive producer STEVEN MOFFAT, Tenth Doctor DAVID TENNANT, Season Six guest star HUGH BONNEVILLE (Downton Abbey), Fifth Doctor companions SARAH SUTTON and MARK STRICKSON, and DAVISON himself, examining one of the most dramatic departures from the series to date and discussing the return of the two popular foes, the emotionless Cybermen and the ever-deceitful Master.
“I was probably the first Doctor who’d actually watched the series when he was growing up.”
Then, in the story “Earthshock,” a conference to unite military powers against the Cybermen is about to take place, but the Cybermen plan to interrupt it and destroy the Earth. The Doctor must race against time to stop his enemies at any cost…
Don’t miss the Premiere of the fifth DOCTOR WHO: THE DOCTORS REVISITED Special, plus the classic Fifth Doctor story “Earthshock” Sunday May 26 at 8/7c only on BBC America.
Steven Moffat is returning for another Doctor Who season, the BBC officially confirmed today. The current series finale aired ahead of a 50th anniversary special slated for November 23 starring Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, David Tennant, Billie Piper, and John Hurt. Moffat “is already plotting a brand new run of adventures for the Doctor,” the network announced on their blog. Brian Minchin will executive produce alongside Moffat.
Here it is. Matt and David discuss life as The Doctor!
Thanks to everyone who worked really hard to keep the secret a secret this past week.
Reminder: the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special is set to air November 23, 2013 — the anniversary of the first broadcast of Doctor Who ever.
This is it! The episode we’ve all been waiting for and our last Saturday livetumblring announcement of the season. It seems so soon and yet we’ve been through so much (and we’re only speaking of the past week!)
In less than 10 minutes, the UK will see the season finale of Doctor Who Series 7: The Name of the Doctor.
Six hours later, the US and Canada will have their debut and then Australia about 10 hours after that.
We will be livetumblring tonight’s 8pm ET BBC America Premiere of The Name of the Doctor.
If you haven’t been here for a livetumblring before, it’s where we blog moments from the episode just as they’re happening on the broadcast.
And we’re sorry. We’re so sorry but because we’re livetumblring in real time — there is no way for us to avoid posting spoilers.
If you’re going to be liveposting any of these broadcasts be sure to let your followers know (and tag your posts as spoilers!)
We’ll be using the tags ‘spoilers’ ‘dw spoilers’ and ‘The Name of the Doctor’. If you can’t watch the episode until later this weekend, you can avoid spoilers by installing Tumblr Savior for your browser. Trust us: you’ll be happy you did.
If you’re using the Tumblr mobile app or if the Tumblr Savior stuff is too much to deal with, consider unfollowing us and then refollowing us after you watch the episode.
After Doctor Who, there will be a new episode of Orphan Black on BBC America and Space Channel at 9p EDT, and at 10p on BBC America, it’s a new episode of The Nerdist.
If all goes well, if all goes according to plan, we’ll have something special to post after the broadcast aside from the behind the scenes videos and storyboards and production galleries…
… and of course, we’re talking about the new clip featuring the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors!!!!!!!
In the meantime, it’s Doctor Who Day which means that we’re reblogging your Season Finale setup pics from the Doctor Who Day tag. What are you wearing? What are you eating? Who are you with? We want to know.
