BBC America has new trailer for Doctor Who: End of Time, Part One and the next David Tennant interview. Plus some new wallpapers from the specials! Happy Holidays from BBC America!
End of Time, Part One Trailer:
Lots to listen to coming up on BBC Radio 4 - luckily, we can use "listen again" on the iPlayer. And, anyway, haven't I employed enough BBC actors by now to get to use the damn thing here? :)
Here's a cool one:
Doctor Who - The Lost Episodes: Shaun Ley investigates what happened to 108 missing episodes of Doctor Who from the 1960s, why the tapes were wiped and how dedicated fans hunted down copies of other episodes in film collections from Cyprus to New Zealand. And while we may have lost those early programmes, Shaun hears how home recordings ensured all the audio survived.
With The End of Time approaching, the BBC has released yet another promo "trailer" for it. Time will end this Christmas. Happy Holidays.
Here is another behind-the-scenes Doctor Who video from BBC America with David Tennant discussing the TARDIS.

A few days ago we came across a photo taken of this publicity image for The End of Time. It was a nice glimpse of the promotional image, albeit it had a flash glare in an unfortunate location. Today, the BBC has published an exclusive image of it sans the glare and it shows a bit more.

The BBC has released a promo for their Christmas line up (see second video below) which features some clips from the Doctor Who: The End of Time specials. One fan ("WhoFan9") made their own edit of it strictly for The End of TIme which you can see below.

READER'S DIGEST EXCLUSIVE:
David Tennant has nothing to say to Matt Smith
David Tennant has admitted he has "nothing to say" to new Time Lord, Matt Smith.
Tennant told Reader's Digest, in an exclusive interview for the December issue, that he'd spoken to his successor several times "but there's nothing to say. I think we both thought we'd be able to exchange lots of ideas. But actually it's none of my business how Matt does it and nothing I say can really help him."
Talking about his final foray as the Doctor in this year's Christmas special, Tennant says "This year we've done something different. It is still set in Christmas, but it's perhaps not got quite as much, er…Christmas cheer as before." Tennant adds that come Christmas Day he'll be watching his own send off. "Just to enjoy the moment. It's my last Doctor Who – it will be nice to witness that."
It is no big surprise that the final David Tennant (as the 10th Doctor) Doctor Who specials, The End of Time, Part 1 and Part 2 will be shown on the BBC in the UK on Christmas Day and New Year's Day respectively. It was pretty much what we have all been expecting ever since the specials were originally announced. Though we have been waiting for an official word from the Beeb on the dates and times of two last specials before Matt Smith takes over the part.
The End of Time, Part One will be on BBC One on Christmas Day at 6pm.
The End of Time, Part Two will be on New Year's Day at 6:40pm on BBC One and runs 75 minutes.
Following suit, BBC America has also announced their date and times for part two (see here for details) as well today.
BBC America has announced the date for the last and final Doctor Who special starring David Tennant as the 10th Doctor (before regenerating into the 11th played by Matt Smith), The End of Time, Part 2 for January 2, 2010 at 8pm ET/PT (note that the other specials are airing at 9pm).
The following is the press release from BBC America:
