Interesting, and a surprising choice. I'd think they'd play it safe with some Tom Baker initially. It's what they used to play when they had classic Who back in the day.
No, the BBC and its partners are doing a one Doctor per month thing for the anniversary:
January: First Doctor
February: Second Doctor
March: Third Doctor
April: Well, you get the idea.
That's why Destiny of the Doctors
is structured the way it is. That's why Prisoners of Time
is structured the way it is. That's why the eBook series is structured the way it is.
So, we can expect a Troughton on BBC America in February, a Pertwee in March, and so on.
