BBC America To Air ‘Doctor Who’ Specials In Lead-Up To Series 6 Return

While Torchwood: Miracle Day gives Whovians a breath of fresh air during the break from Doctor Who Series 6, BBC America is already gearing up for the return of Matt Smith‘s Eleventh Doctor with several Doctor Whotelevision shows to air during August.

It was announced during San Diego Comic-Con last month that the second half of Series 6 will resume on Saturday, August 27, 2011. In the lead-up to the return of this season, BBC America has scheduled three specials. The network has also released a short sneak peak teaser of the specials, in which guests discuss their favorite aspects of the long-running series. You can view a list of the specials with date and times, along with the preview video here below.

There are numerous guests to appear on these episodes, but the most interesting to appear include Eugene Mirman from Flight of the Conchords, comedic actor and musician Reggie Watts, and the stomping guitarist of metal Scott Ian from the band Anthrax!

The specials are something to look forward to, as we wait for the return of Steven Moffat‘s complex new season of Doctor Who.
