DW: PotD...Coming Soon!
The BBC has released the preview for the first episode of the new season of one of my all-time favorite shows, Doctor Who. Sadly, this will also be the last season for David Tennant (right), who plays The Doctor. According to his website, the first episode of the new season, entitled "Planet of the Dead," goes something like this (cue freaky space music): "When a London bus takes a detour to an alien world, the Doctor must join forces with the extraordinary Lady Christina, in this one-off seasonal special. But the mysterious planet holds terrifying secrets, hidden in the sand. And time is running out, as the deadly Swarm gets closer." The "one-off seasonal special" part means it's the first episode of the season and is meant to whet your appetite for the rest of the season, which will air over the course of the year. This episode is supposed to air in the UK over Easter weekend. The only question is...when the heck is it going to air in the US so I can watch it???!!! If only I had a TARDIS, I could jump two weeks into the future and visit my friend CC and her family in northern England, watch the episode with them, then jump back in time to now, and write a blog post about having seen the episode already! But I wouldn't want to ruin it for you, would I? Here's the preview for the episode (or click here to see it on YouTube).
