Wow, we’ve been posting a whole bunch of announcements today: cinema screenings and special programming. August is shaping up to be super exciting!
Leading up to the premiere of Series 8 on August 23rd, BBC America will be premiering a whole bunch of all new never before seen super fun specials-
- Saturday, August 16 at 9:00pm ET- Doctor Who: The Ultimate Companion
- Saturday, August 16 at 10:00PM ET- Real History of Science Fiction
- Monday, August 18 at 10:00pm ET- Doctor Who: The Ultimate Time Lord
In addition to those new specials, starting Monday, August 18 at 8:00am ET, BBC America will be starting the Doctor Who Takeover Week, where Doctor Who will be airing all week long.
To top it all off, right before the premiere of Deep Breath, Chris Hardwick (Nerdist, superfan, host of @Midnight ) will be hosting a Doctor Who: Live Pre-Show at 7:30pm ET and Doctor Who: After Who Live at 11:00pm ET following the premiere of Intruders. Both the pre- and post-show will feature a whole bunch of awesome guests including Mark Gatiss, and will include exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
And that’s not all! Next week on August 6th, you and all of your friends (and maybe even your pets, if you can teach them how to internet) will have the chance to vote for your favorite episodes over on BBCAmerica.com. The top selections of this "Make Your Own Sunday" poll will be aired on August 24 as part of a BBC America marathon.
Take a deep breath, folks. There’s a lot of stuff going on this month, and it’s gonna be fantastic.
