It is no big surprise that the final David Tennant (as the 10th Doctor) Doctor Who specials, The End of Time, Part 1 and Part 2 will be shown on the BBC in the UK on Christmas Day and New Year's Day respectively. It was pretty much what we have all been expecting ever since the specials were originally announced. Though we have been waiting for an official word from the Beeb on the dates and times of two last specials before Matt Smith takes over the part.
The End of Time, Part One will be on BBC One on Christmas Day at 6pm.
The End of Time, Part Two will be on New Year's Day at 6:40pm on BBC One and runs 75 minutes.
Following suit, BBC America has also announced their date and times for part two (see here for details) as well today.

The Next Doctor stars David Tennant as the 10th Doctor along with David Morrissey. The DVD has a suggested retail price of $14.98 in the US. This single-disc release will include a 60 minute bonus feature of Doctor Who at the Proms. The usual trailer, sub-titles, Dolby Digital 5.1 are included as well. No word about an audio commentary, but one is assumed to be included.
