The end is coming. The day after Christmas, to be exact.
BBC America announced Friday (Nov. 20) that the “Doctor Who” special “The End of Time, Part One” — the first half of David Tennant‘s final appearance as the Doctor — will premiere Saturday, Dec. 26 in the United States, just one day after its U.K. debut. Part two will also air over the holidays, though an airdate hasn’t been announced yet.
“The End of Time” will find the tenth Doctor facing the end of his era as the Time Lord and doing battle with the Master (“Life on Mars” star John Simm, reprising his role). Along with the airdate, BBC America has also released about three minutes of footage from the special, in which the Doctor visits the Ood and hears about their disturbing dreams.
The scene is below. More video from “The End of Time” and “The Waters of Mars,” which airs on Dec. 19, is at BBCAmerica.com.
Cool, right? Does this feel like an appropriately epic send-off for the tenth Doctor?
