EXCLUSIVE: TV Tonight can finally reveal the Australian airdates for Doctor Who: The End of Time Parts 1 & 2.
Part 1 will screen at 7:30pm Sunday February 14 on ABC1.
Part 2 will follow a week later 7:30pm Sunday February 21 on ABC1.
The two part adventure brings to an end the reign of David Tennant as The Doctor and introduces Matt Smith, briefly, in the second part. The episodes aired in the UK on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, topping 10.4m viewers for Tennant’s exit.
Tennant is widely viewed by many, including die-hard Who fans, of being the best of the 10 actors to have assumed the role of The Doctor.
Critics in the UK were particularly rapturous about the second episode pointing to its mix of adventure, jeopard, emotion and sentiment.
Appearing in the mammoth adventure are John Simms (Life on Mars), who returns as The Master, Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights, Licence to Kill) and former Who favourites who have helped distinguish the Tennant era.
“The End of Time” also signifys the end of Russell T. Davies (Torchwood, Queer as Folk) reign with writer Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Jekyll) taking charge as Showrunner.
Matt Smith (Party Animals), the youngest-ever actor to assume the role, will lead a new Who series to air later this year.
