I have to say I'm not crazy about writing on David Tennant's final Doctor Who episodes. Usually each time one Doctor regenerates into another, it's hard to accept the change. I'm sure Matt Smith will be brilliant but honestly, I'm not excited about seeing him in action.
BBC America has announced today the U.S. premiere dates of David Tennant's final episode as the tenth Doctor. Doctor Who: The End Of Time, Part 2 will premiere January 2, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, one week after Part One on BBC America. The final era of David Tennant is one of the most eagerly anticipated adventures in Doctor Who's history. Guest stars will include John Simm (Life On Mars) as the Master, Timothy Dalton, Catherine Tate and Bernard Cribbins.
Doctor Who: The Waters Of Mars will air on BBC America Saturday, December 19, 9:00p.m. ET/PT.
Regarding the final specials, lead writer and executive producer Russell T Davies told Radio Times, "It's personal for the Doctor. The Master (John Simm) is his enemy, his opposite, and yet so tantalizingly close to being his soul mate. There's something epic about their sheer existence - the last two survivors of an ancient race. It's a clash of the titans. Both of them, heading for death, and yet both determined to survive - at any cost!"
The Doctor faces the end of his life as the Master's plans hurtle out of control. With the sound of drums growing louder, and an ancient trap closing around the Earth, the Doctor and Wilf must fight alone. But sacrifices must be made, and the deadly prophecy warns: "He will knock four times."
Doctor Who: The End Of Time, Part One will air on BBC America Saturday, December 26, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Prepare to say goodbye to the Doctor.
