Catching Up With the Mad Man in the Box

Oh, this news made my day!! This August, BBC America is scheduled to run four Doctor Who specials, in preparation for the Fall start of the seventh series!!

They did this last year, with three specials designed to act as a "memory jog". This time, the DW folks aim to marry the sci-fi with the sci-non fi, to create a laid-back, fun, but educational viewing experience. Here's the schedule:

August 4th, 11:00 PM (not sure of time zone. My guess is Eastern): The Science of Doctor Who.
Find out the real science behind "wibbly wobbly timey wimey".

August 11th, 9:00 PM: The Women of Doctor Who.
Yes, that sounds like a centerfold spread, but these chicks mean business! Learn about the ladies who can run through corridors backwards and in high heels.

August 18th, 11:00 PM: The Timey-Wimey Stuff of Doctor Who.
Trying to figure what happened when? This might help.

August 25th, 9:00 PM: The Destinations of Doctor Who.
Take a closer look at the Doctor's passport.

In addition, BBC America has released a series of teaser posters that are simply stunning. Click here to see them all (and turn them into desktop backgrounds, if you're like me).
