2nd 2009 Special: Latest Information

Russell T Davies, head writer and executive producer for Doctor Who, has commented in this month's edition of Doctor Who magazine about the second 2009 Doctor Who special. Read on for what he had to say:

"The next three specials will be shown in the second half of the year. It was said, in some interviews, that all three would air around Christmas time, but plans have changed since then."

"We can't give away exact dates yet, except to say that you should be seeing Episode 4.16 before the Christmas period. The title of the next special will be revealed at the end of Planet of the Dead, along with a short trail, in which you'll see excerpts from what promises to be our scariest adventure ever. 

"Events are going to darken around the Tenth Doctor as he heads towards the end of his tenure, and it all starts in Episode 4.16, as he and his co-stars are plunged into a world of terror, and we can no longer guarantee that the Doctor will escape unscathed!"

The first 2009 Doctor Who special, Planet of the Dead, is set to broadcast on Saturday 11th April at 6:45pm on BBC One and BBC HD.
