The Planet of the Dead

Somehow, despite my well earned status as Rabid Fangirl, I was completely oblivious to the fact that BBC1 would be airing the first of this year's Doctor Who specials next Saturday (April 11). That was remedied yesterday when the trailer went live:

I'm excited for some new Who (with the fifth series not airing until next year, we have to take what little we can get), but it brings us one episode closer to the end of Russell T. Davies' reign, as well as that of the Tenth Doctor. And I am really going to miss Ten. He brings such light and joy to the series, not to mention his distinct style and delivery.

I can only hope that "Planet of the Dead" is better than the 2008 Christmas Special, "The Next Doctor." I was so disappointed by that episode that I didn't even bother to watch it a second time.
