According to Variety Magazine, Doctor Who will moving from the SciFi Network (soon to be called SyFy, to rhyme with “iffy”) to BBC America, starting with the gap year specials. The 2008 Christmas special “The Next Doctor”, which aired in Canada on SPACE in March 2009, will finally get its US premiere on BBC America on Saturday, June 27, at 9:00 PM. The remaining four specials have yet to be scheduled, but they, along with Series 5, looks like they have found a home.
This is also interesting news, given the Podcast 8 (for lack of an actual name) focusing much attention on the plight of US broadcasting Doctor Who earlier this month. Anyway, here’s the link to the Variety story.
