BBC America Announces US Premiere Of Doctor Who: The End Of Time, Pt 1

Will it be a good Christmas for U.S. viewers?

U.S. and UK viewers agree that Doctor Who is a great show.  We've had some friendly teasing over the fact that U.S. audiences have to wait to see the new episodes.  It's fair that it should air on British television before coming to America.  With Doctor Who: The End Of Time, we will see the beginning of the end for David Tennant as the Doctor.  The first part will air in Britain on Christmas Day.  When will U.S. audiences get to see it?
 
BBC America has announced that U.S. viewers will get to watch the episode on December 26, 2009 at 9 pm ET/PT, one day later!  That is great news!  I am both excited and saddened over these two episodes.  Check out the following sneak peak of the episode (I assume this video will only work in the US so overseas viewers may have to check with their local BBC website if you haven't already seen this):
 
 

  
What could possibly bring on the end of this regeneration of the Doctor?  I almost hate to find out.  The episode will guest star John Simm, Timothy Dalton, Catherine Tate, Lindsay Duncan and Bernard Cribbins.  The premiere date for Part 2 will be announced soon.

Good for you, America. Good for you ( I don't mean this in a patronising manner).

@G-Man: I'm trying not to give away any spoilers, but you're such a tease!  ;p 
 
They showed a clip on Children in Need, and it looked like it was the opening few minutes from this year's Christmas show.  That was about an hour ago, so it's a little too early to appear on YouTube.   
Where he's wearing the straw hat, shades & the lei.  Y/N??

@xerox-kitty: The clip shows the Master and the Doctor's fighting on a molten lava filled world.  They start dueling with energy swords and then...well maybe I shouldn't spoil it.

@Emperor Gonzo Noir: Actually I was lying.  The video Xerox-Kitty posted is the same one.

maybe its just me but i am engliah and i dont watch doctor who,never liked it,use to watch it in its first run a bit as youngster and it always seemed naff and poorly made to me.after viewing star wars ,doctor who came a poor second in terms of effects etc.i even preferred watching buck rodgers and battlestar galactica to doctor who and thats saying something.all the american shows at the time had better production values and seemed less knocked together maybe that still sticks with me to this day.
