Torchwood Season Three Premier Trailer

February 11, 2009

Late posting this. This is a preview for the third season premier.
No air date set, but in case you haven’t heard, it’s a Mini-series, not a full season. I know, I’m bummed too.

*UPDATE* The Doctor will see you now — or, more specifically,
in a few weeks.

BBC America has announced that it will begin airing a series of five Doctor Who specials starring David Tennant. The first special hits US airwaves June 27.

From May 29, 2009

BBC America has acquired the Stateside rights to five Doctor Who specials that mark the end of both Russell T. Davies’ stint as show-runner and David Tennant’s run as the titular time-traveler. Producer Steven Moffat and actor Matt Smith will succeed Davies and Tennant starting with Season 5.

“The Next Doctor,” aka the series’ Christmas special, will air on BBCA June 27, says Variety, while the next outing, “Planet of the Dead,” will debut sometime in July. Dates for “The Waters of Mars” and the two other specials have not been set, though all are expected to air by early 2010.

The BBC series’ appearance on BBC America represents a rather ironic anomaly, since Sci Fi Channel claimed dibs on the first four seasons, leaving BBCA to unspool them a year after the fact.

But not only has BBC America secured a choice appointment with the Doctor, it also will premiere Torchwood: Children of Earth, a five-part event, in July.

The WhoTorchwood one-two punch will help BBCA tee up the debuts of two new shows: Being Human (starting July 25, and concerning a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost), and Survivors (about the last members of the human race after a virus snuffs 99 percent of the population; premiere TBA).
