Ring in the new year with the Doctor! BBC America will be marathoning Doctor Who episodes starring David Tennant as the Doctor starting at midnight, New Year's Day through January 2nd with the conclusion of David Tennant's last special, The End of Time, Part 2.
It all starts at the stroke of midnight, January 1, 2010 with The Christmas Invasion, David Tennant's first full story as the Doctor after regenerating from the 9th Doctor played by Christopher Eccleston (from Christmas 2005). Each hour after that brings a new episode. 1am - New Earth, 2am - Tooth and Claw, etc.
The End of Time comes to BBC America tonight, well part 1 of it at least. Will it top the best figures BBC America received last week with the airing The Waters of Mars special? Time will tell. 1.1 million viewers turned into BBC America (of those that can receive it of course) to see The Waters of Mars making it the highest rated show ever on BBC America.
Tonight at 9pm (EST), Doctor Who returns to the cable/satellite channel with The End of Time, Part 1. Here's a taste of the episode below.
A couple new videos from BBC America include Russell T Davies talking about the thought process during his final specials and working with John Simm.
