Saturday, June 27, 2009: Doctor Who

BBC America debuts Doctor Who: The Next Doctor, aka The Christmas Special, this weekend. As with most of the recent holiday specials, this one sounds awesome. I've been itching to find out what is going to happen with the Doctor now that Donna's lost her memories, Rose is back in alternate land with her own little Doctor clone and Martha's off dealing with Law & Order or whatever. So the Doctor is all lonely, but apparently he's keeping busy.

The Doctor goes back to Christmas Eve 1851 and investigates some mysterious deaths and he has an encounter with another Doctor. Weird, right? Other Doctor is played by David Morrissey, and he even has the nerve to have his own little sonic screw driver. While they try and figure out what the hell in the mad regenerating world is happening, they also have to fight off a recurring enemy. No, not the Dalek, they were just in the finale. It's the Cybermen!

I love the Cybermen only slightly less than the Daleks and I'm psyched for their reappearance. Also pretty excited to see David Tennant in action again, though this special is the first of the four that will mark the end of his run. But since I'm pretending like his departure is happening a long, long time from now (yes, it is called denial), I'm excited to have any new episodes. I'm not even going to complain about my usual dislike of watching snowy movies/shows in the summer.

BBC America is airing the special tonight at 9 PM ET. You'll have to wait a whole month to see the next one with Michelle "I was briefly Bionic Woman" Ryan.
