08:30PM The Sixth Doctor NEW

2013 is DOCTOR WHO's 50th Anniversary. Each month, BBC AMERICA takes the TARDIS back in time with Brand New Specials on all eleven Doctors. This month, it's Sixth Doctor COLIN BAKER!

Don't miss the Premiere of the sixth DOCTOR WHO: THE DOCTORS REVISITED Special, plus the classic Sixth Doctor story "Vengeance on Varos" *** Saturday June 29 at 7:30pm ET *** only on BBC America.

Take an in-depth look at the sixth incarnation of the truly timeless Time Lord - who "turned [the Doctor] into this grand-standing showoff." With exclusive interviews with lead writer and executive producer STEVEN MOFFAT, Sixth Doctor companions NICOLA BRYANT (Peri Brown) and BONNIE LANGFORD (Mel Bush), examining the Sixth Doctor's adventures and discussing his famous foes.

Then, in the story "Vengeance on Varos," the Doctor visits the planet Varos to obtain the rare ore Zeiton-7, vital to the functioning of his TARDIS. But Varos is a dangerous place, where rebels are tortured on live television and executions are used to win votes from the public. Trapped in the dreaded Punishment Dome, the Doctor and his companion Peri must fight for their lives - and save the starving population from the machinations of the villainous reptilian Sil.

  1. Fingers crossed Revisited comes to local Space scifi channel. On Sarah Jane adventures spin-off, eyeless blank white-face enemies dressed in black-hooded cloaks look like nasties in last season Doctor Who. They start in 1.7 1.8 "Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane" and continue in 2.9 "The Temptation of Sarah Jane" all by Gareth Roberts. I'm only that far, but they do seem to recycle old villains. The more we learn about the whole Dr Who universe, like the old doctors here, adds to the enjoyment.
