End of Time
Cover art for Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 175 in which we review Doctor Who: The End of Time, Part 1 live over the net.
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.

A few days ago we came across a photo taken of this publicity image for The End of Time. It was a nice glimpse of the promotional image, albeit it had a flash glare in an unfortunate location. Today, the BBC has published an exclusive image of it sans the glare and it shows a bit more.

The BBC has released a promo for their Christmas line up (see second video below) which features some clips from the Doctor Who: The End of Time specials. One fan ("WhoFan9") made their own edit of it strictly for The End of TIme which you can see below.
The BBC One Christmas Drama 2009 Promo:
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.
BBC America has announced the date for the last and final Doctor Who special starring David Tennant as the 10th Doctor (before regenerating into the 11th played by Matt Smith), The End of Time, Part 2 for January 2, 2010 at 8pm ET/PT (note that the other specials are airing at 9pm).
The following is the press release from BBC America:
