Same here. Then we could exchange bad puns over Daleks and Cybermen.

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

I guess it'll just be one special per Doctor working our way towards November.

BTW, I finally kicked back yesterday afternoon and watched "The Aztecs". I watched the retrospective "prologue" when it was broadcast, but since the story itself would play until midnight, I recorded it show I could enjoy the presentation at a more reasonable hour.

Without revealing any "spoilers", I had to chuckle at the "byline" displayed at the bottom of the screen "You are watching a classic episode of Doctor Who" just to prevent any confusion for the casual viewer. "Honey, the TV's on the fritz! It's lost the color and the clarity!"

Sincerely,

Bill

"Obviously it's a rerun of the First Doctor, and not Matt Smith, but yea, why does Eccelston look so old"?

Not listed for the 10th or the 16th yet, so probably like last month, the last Sunday of the month Feb 24.

Someone posted on the SyFy board that it's confirmed for Feb 24th, no word yet on which story

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

I would be shocked if it wasn't The Tomb of the Cybermen. One of Matt Smith's favorite stories, a four-parter, pretty good quality even without the DVD restorations? It certainly beats The Krotons.

It pretty much has to be. The listing for the Second Doctor special is out on zap2it now, with this description:

The second Doctor, portrayed by Patrick Troughton, brings new energy to the show; Scottish highlander companion Jamie McCrimmon; Cybermen.
First up, it's scheduled from 7p-10p Central, so it'll finish an hour earlier than last month's. Second, the ONLY description in there is the last word - Cybermen. Assuming they are doing the documentary first, that leaves two hours/four episodes they could air. So the Wheel story is out, it must be Tomb.
