Sci Fi Wire has posted among many the last episodes to be released in the US. Being one my favorites since Tom Baker it is going to be hard and exciting to watch those last ones. Also the curiosity of how the new Dr will make it after having a charismatic actor playing him for such a long time . But maybe that is why they are giving this a years breather between shoots and airing. Who knows.
According to the report
The next special, Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars airs on BBC AMERICA, Saturday December 19, 9:00pm ET/PT. It stars Tennant and British stage and screen actress Lindsay Duncan (Rome, Langford) as Adelaide, his cleverest and most strong-minded companion.
The episodes names is the "WATERS OF MARS" and is being touted as one of the most scariest Dr episodes yet.
See the Mail online article " David Tennant: New Doctor Who special is 'one of the scariest " for more info on that episode.
The last episode after that will be split into two and that will be the end of Davids run as the Dr. Those episodes dates are yet to be announced and will air over the holiday season. On that day I will raise a glass of wine and toast the end of a fun and fantastic run as the Dr and wish the actor well on his other projects and look forward to the new episodes and the new look with an open mind. I know maybe a little to dramatic but hey it is always a wee bit sad to see the familiar face and style you grow accustom to change. But that is what kept that franchise vibrant and fresh all those years and is the reason why it is the longest SCI FI show in the history of the world.
The BBC also announced the DVD collection release of those final shows including the one that already has been released the Planet of the Dead
