Doctor Who Special air date confirmed

Doctor WhoThe next Doctor Who special, "Planet of the Dead" will be airing on April 11th of this year, according to the BBC Press Office. The BBC website does list the air date as "unplaced"; however, Outpost Gallifrey is the source I've used for this news, and they've been pretty reliable in the past.

Is anybody else itching for the next Doctor Who special as much as I am? There hasn't been a new episode since December, and while I appreciate the need to give a franchise such as this a break, there's only so far reruns, comic books and audio dramas can go.

Of course, once the Easter special is done, it will be a long eight months until the three episodes that wrap up David Tennant's time in the role are broadcast. And who knows when the American broadcast will be. Perhaps Sy Fy will take the five episodes for this year and broadcast them as a mini-series like Torchwood: Children of Earth.

the last I heard it was April 12th, Easter Sunday. Outpost Gallifrey has no more information than anyone else has.

Die Hard Yankee Whovian Fan right here, Brad. I've been watching 'Who' since I was little and following the new series religiously since it started in '04.

I'm totally psyched about the upcoming special, though it is frustrating knowing that I'll have to wait some time before I get to watch it properly on the TV. Still, there are...other avenues to explore...cough, cough.

Still, the Sci-Fi channel (I refuse to call them by their new idiotic name), would do well to grab this ASAP. They have to know by now that there is a huge number of American Who fans.

It will be bittersweet watching this though, knowing its one less adventure for the 10th Doc. I'm still very dissapointed that Tennant is quitting. Personally, I don't think he needed to worry about typecasting or anything. If you're a talented enough actor -- which he is -- there's no reason he couldn't have gone at least one more full season, and still had plenty of offers waiting after.
