Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)

By the way, here's the schedule for BBC America's "Doctor Who Takeover Week" starting Monday:


In summary, it's mostly reruns, either of the previous Doctors Revisited specials from the previous ten months, or of episodes from the new series. But there's some original content: On Monday at 9 Eastern, there's an interview documentary called Tales from the TARDIS and then The Science of Doctor Who With Brian Cox. Friday has a Doctor Who Explained special at 8 Eastern before the debut of An Adventure in Time and Space, the docudrama about the creation and early years of the series. And on Saturday, "The Day of the Doctor" debuts in a global simulcast at 2:50 PM Eastern, then gets rerun at 7 PM, and at 10 there's a Graham Norton Show episode with Matt Smith and David Tennant. Sunday has a final Doctors Revisited special debuting at 8 PM Eastern, focusing on Matt Smith and reairing "The Impossible Astronaut"/"The Day of the Moon."

I'm a little disappointed there isn't more classic series content that hasn't already been rerun on BBCA (although I'm afraid they'd stretch it out to fit the widescreen frame like they did with the Revisited episodes). It would've been so cool if they'd debuted the recently recovered Second Doctor stories "The Enemy of the World" and "The Web of Fear," for instance. But I guess it's just as well there isn't too much stuff to watch, or I'd have no time to get any work done.
