Content EditorOnly 15 days to go and, on the day when we finally discovered the exact transmission time of Doctor Who's anniversary episode "The Day of the Doctor," AND we got our very first glimpse of a scene from the episode; BBC America has just announced their Time Lord packed schedule in the week running up to the worldwide simulcast of "The Day of the Doctor." As well as the iconic episode itself, Whovians can look forward to Professor Brian Cox explaining the real science of the TARDIS, the US premiere of the Mark Gatiss penned docu-drama "An Adventure in Space and Time" as well as marathons dedicated to each of the "new" Time Lords. It promises to be an exciting time for BBC America and I am sure that the American Whovians are just as excited as us British ones at the sheer number of amazing shows we are getting in honour of everyone's favourite Gallifreyan. Check out the full schedule below courtesy of the guys at BBC America.
