SPACE Announces Air Dates for Four Doctor Who Specials
Gearing up for the much anticipated seventh season of Doctor Who coming sometime this fall, Space Channel is filling the with four hour-long specials on Saturday nights in August exploring the WHOniverse touching on cool topics such as science, the companions, timey-whimey madness and all the places they go.
Not to be satisfied with just a few nights of Doctor Who (because let’s face it, who really can be?) SPACE will be filling up our Sundays with Doctor Who marathons covering seasons 4, 5, 6, (do those numbers seem ominous to anyone?) Get the details beyond the jump:
THE SCIENCE OF DOCTOR WHO, featuring the real-life science behind the biggest concepts and most iconic ideas of the series. Aug. 4 at 9 p.m.
THE WOMEN OF DOCTOR WHO, Behind every great Time Lord there’s a great companion. Whether they’re grappling with Daleks or the Doctor’s ego, the women of DOCTOR WHO prove that you don’t need a medical degree to save the universe. Aug. 11 at 9 p.m.
THE TIMEY-WIMEY OF DOCTOR WHO, SPACE knows that Doctor’s are never on time, but when the Time Lord’s around, tomorrow is yesterday and yesterday is tomorrow. Confused yet? It all becomes clear… Aug. 18 at 9 p.m.
THE DESTINATIONS OF DOCTOR WHO, Before the new season takes off this fall, viewers can journey to the end of the Earth to destinations not featured in any ordinary guidebook …Aug. 25 at 9 p.m.
As for the DOCTOR WHO CATCH UP MARATHONS, catch David Tennant and his wonderfully expressive hair during the season 4 marathon Sunday, July 29 beginning at 6 a.m. Then watch Matt Smith from the beginning of his run as the Doctor starting with Season 5 airing all day on Sunday, Aug. 6 beginning at 6 a.m., then Season 6 on Sunday, Aug. 12 beginning at 6 a.m.
Then we bite our nails waiting for a season seven premiere date when we’ll see Matt Smith once again take the reigns as the Doctor and follow the mighty Ponds into their final season. Anyone have a Tardis they can lend me, I’ll be happy to use it to find out the premiere date and bring it back here for you!
