Ring in the new year with the Doctor! BBC America will be marathoning Doctor Who episodes starring David Tennant as the Doctor starting at midnight, New Year's Day through January 2nd with the conclusion of David Tennant's last special, The End of Time, Part 2.
It all starts at the stroke of midnight, January 1, 2010 with The Christmas Invasion, David Tennant's first full story as the Doctor after regenerating from the 9th Doctor played by Christopher Eccleston (from Christmas 2005). Each hour after that brings a new episode. 1am - New Earth, 2am - Tooth and Claw, etc.
A couple new videos from BBC America include Russell T Davies talking about the thought process during his final specials and working with John Simm.

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.
A belated Happy Birthday to Nicholas Courtney who turned 80 on the 16th of December. Nicholas Courtney has been connected to the Doctor Who series going back to when William Hartnell was the Doctor. He is best known for his role as Brigadier Sir Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart. Aside from appearing in two episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures last year (Enemy of the Bane parts 1 and 2), he has yet to appear in the series since its return in 2005, although there have been some references.
A special birthday wish and thank you goes out to Nicholas Courtney for the years of enjoyment he has brought to our screens throughout time and space.
