The penultimate “Doctor Who” episode of David Tennant’s reign aired in Britain on Christmas and over here in the colonies over the weekend on the 26th. The final installment airs next weekend on January 2nd on BBC America stateside. The DVDs are still a month off, with a February 2nd ship date, but it’s still possible that the final two episodes will hit iTunes in advance of that.
Other than a serious case of envy for those who actually get BBC America, we do have a few nifty stills taken from the episode hosted at BBC America.
And SciFi Wire has a brief interview with John Simm (The Master) which includes this tidbit:
“They were very good friends. So I see it as though they’re kind of really, really emotionally attached. They’re the only two of their kind left in the whole universe. They’ve got each other. and that is it. And if anyone can cure the Master and cure this noise in his head, it’s the Doctor. They’re the same person, more or less. There’s a real connection there. It’s just a shame that they’re … um … mortal enemies. That’s why they’re mortal enemies, because they … you know, it’s like Cain and Abel.”
To top it off, here’s the final short trailer for part two of “The End of Time”:
Oh to be British. When our empire slips away, will we get to have the BBC too?
