The Women of Doctor Who airing Tomorrow Night
On July 29th Gallifreyan Embassy Contributor Troy Baker posted a list of the Doctor Who specials airing this month This Saturday, August 11th, 2012 9/8c the second of these specials air on BBC America -- The Women of Doctor Who
Here is the description from the BBC America site:
Behind every great time lord there’s a great woman. Whether they’re busting Daleks or the Doctor’s ego, the women of ‘Doctor Who’ prove that you don’t need testosterone to save the universe.
Ok very cool and we know that in the post 2005 series we have Valkyrie type female companions in Rose, Martha, Donna & Amy.
Like The Science of Doctor Who, which Louis wrote about being available on iTunes this special will probably deal strictly with the post 2005 series and not recall any of the prior companions and stories of the Doctor. I personally feel with the recent loss of Caroline John, and more recent, Mary Tamm, two classic Who companions, this special should at least acknowledge the role and presence these extraordinary ladies had on the show and in the lives of fans.
However, I cannot say for sure til viewing it that the special will only focus on The Women of Doctor Who in the post 2005 series.
For those without BBC America, which is really quite shameful that cable providers have yet to get their act together, we will of course let you know when it is available on iTunes
