David Tennant’s final ‘Doctor Who’ episodes scheduled for BBC America
All good things must come to an end, and they’ll be ending at pretty much the same time here as in the UK.
BBC America will air the US premieres of the three Doctor Who specials where David Tennant ends his turn in the title role. Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars airs on December 19 at 9 PM Eastern; Doctor Who: The End of Time, Part One airs December 26 at 9 PM Eastern; and the final special Doctor Who: The End of Time, Part Two airs January 2, 2010 at 9 PM Eastern.
But worry not– Tennant will be back on TV soon on NBC, no less, in the new series Rex Is Not Your Lawyer, being prepped for a fall premiere. Let’s see if he can do a Chicago accent…
I'm a tad sorry to see Tenant's departure from Dr. Who but he had a more traditional run then his predecessor so I'm reasonably satisfied. A new show in the US! One more Brit actor taking a job from an American! I don't know whether to be happy for Tennant or concerned about guys like Eric McCormick!
We have enjoyed Dr. Who for years and David is one of my favorite Dr's. By the way what is wrong with us Americans? On the whole we are a good lot no one is perfect. I would say that an American sold out to the Brits.
So he sold out…..bummer.
We just had the new 45 minute Dr Who cartoon "Dreamland" on over here in the UK today ! shame it was so cheaply made as there are some great lines from the Doctor in it
Tennant's new show reminds me of Patrick McGoohan's US series following the Prisoner, some dreadful cookiecutter thing about about a big city doctor, as I recall.
I noticed that I left off the contraction; I meant (would not) on previous comment.
