Three new Doctor Who specials to air around August 27 premiere

doctor whoKnowing that the latest season of Doctor Who will return at the end of the month doesn’t make the wait for more adventures any easier — in fact, the days seem to go by that much slower. Thankfully, BBC America has the hardcore Whovians covered.

This week, the network announced a trio of Doctor Who specials that will roll out around the August 27 premiere episode, “Let’s Kill Hitler.” The specials will each focus on a specific element of The Doctor’s universe, and feature a long list of celebrity Whovians waxing philosophic (and comedic) about the long-running British science-fiction series.

Here’s the breakdown of what’s airing and when you can catch it on BBC America:

Doctor Who: Best of the Doctor will air Saturday, August 13, at 9 PM Eastern.

Doctor Who: Best of the Monsters will broadcast exactly one week later on Saturday, August 20, at 9 PM Eastern.

Finally, Doctor Who: Best of the Companions will air on Saturday, August 27, immediately following the mid-season premiere (so around 10 PM Eastern or so).

And just to prolong the tease, the network has released a clip from the August 20 special featuring a celebratory look back at the latest season’s most buzzed-about bad guys, The Silence.
