I’m slowly getting tired of watching the same sixteen episodes of Doctor Who we have on our DVR. The series took somewhat of a hiatus for 2009 after Journey's End aired in the US. On Easter the UK got Planet of the Dead but there are no plans for it to be shown on BBC America. You can see on YouTube, but for me it’s not the same.
I finally realized that I wasn’t alone in my plight. I went looking for answers and found a podcast. Podshock, they spent about an hour trying to figure out what the heck the BBC and BBC America are doing with the Doctor Who series. So, I understand that you’re not even close to being the huge nerd that I am, so I’ll give you the translation from geek to normal, law abiding citizen.
Between Journey's End and the start of the fifth season, there are four specials. None are planned to be shown in the US, sorry. This will be the last story ark for David Tennant before he regenerates. Matt Smith by the way. The blog-a-sphere is ablaze with rumor. From Captain Jack being photographed walking next to the Dr. to the Master returning. It’s been repeated over and over that Donna will return. It’s all very cool. Since the first of these has aired, now we just sits and waits. Is it November yet?
