BBC America has picked up the five Doctor Who specials with David Tennant and departing show runner Russell T. Davies. “The Next Doctor”, the series’ Christmas special, will air at 9:00pm on June 27th followed by “Planet of the Dead” in July. Dates and times for the final three shows have yet to be determined.
The past four seasons of the current incarnation of Doctor Who had previously aired in the US on SCI FI.
The five specials effectively serve as the show’s fourth season. New show runner Steven Moffat and new Doctor Matt Smith will come on board for the show’s fifth season.
