US Start Date
BBC America Announces US Start Date
BBC America has announced that their broadcasts of the new series of Doctor Who will start on April 17th. The date has been reported in the Hollywood trade paper Variety, and has been confirmed on BBC America’s website and Facebook page.
The start date for UK broadcast has not yet been officially confirmed. There are reports that a trailer has aired with the date of April 3rd, but this may have been broadcast in error. The BBC’s official position is that the series will debut “at Easter”.
It’s official. The US release date for the next Dr Who special “The End of Time” part one is December 26th (on BBC America). We get it only ONE DAY after the Brits!
I’m feeling a lot of excitement and a lot of pure dread. This is probably going to be the second hardest hour of entertainment television I’ve ever watched – the first hardest being part two.
And speaking of heart-breaking television, I’ve just watched the latest episode of Supernatural. I have to say, this show has been pretty dang gorgeous all this season, mingling the brilliant spoofs with the dire end-of-the-world business. (Last week’s show was genius, with the boys visiting their own fan convention and mixing it up with all those “Dean and Sam” cosplayers!) But what they did tonight? With Jo and Ellen? Just so not fair. I need cheering up after The Waters of Mars, not more reasons to reach for the tissues!
