... LONESOME DOVE

AMC, 1:00 p.m. ET


There’s a whole posse of great characters in this superb 1989 CBS miniseries adaptation of Larry McMurtry’s equally superb Western novel. But for now, stay with the head of the herd: Robert Duvall gives a career-best performance as Augustus McRae, and Tommy Lee Jones does likewise as fellow retired Texas Ranger Woodrow Call. Given those two actors, claiming a career best is really, really up there. And Danny Glover, Diane Lane, Anjelica Huston – hell, everyone and everything in this miniseries is worth watching, from start to finish. And you can do just that, today, as AMC televises the entire miniseries from 1-9 p.m. ET.

... DOCTOR WHO: THE DOCTORS REVISITED – THE EIGHTH DOCTOR

BBC America, 8:00 p.m. ET [BBC America changed the time to 9/8C]


Tonight’s Doctor of note will have the most comprehensive retrospective of any Doctor in this series of specials, but that’s only because the reign of “The Eighth Doctor” lasted only two hours. After the original BBC Doctor Who series, which ran in the U.K. from 1963 to 1989, had gone dormant, the character and storyline were revived for a pilot telemovie in 1996, with the expectations of a new American-produced series to follow. Yet when the Doctor Who made-for-TV movie was shown on Fox and the BBC in 1996, starring Paul McGann as the newest incarnation of the Doctor, it bombed stateside, and the character was shelved until the franchise was relaunched in 2005. So the entirety of McGann’s reign as the Doctor consists of a single telemovie, which BBC America is presenting, also in its entirety, as part of this Eighth Doctor tribute. Co-stars include Daphne Ashbrook as the Doctor’s companion, and Eric Roberts as the Master.

Based on Larry McMurtry's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, the $20 million star-laden miniseries garnered seven Emmys (including one for director Simon Wincer) and a Peabody Award; and inspired an impressive sequel miniseries, `Return to Lonesome Dove,' in 1993, and a weekly series a year later.

Main cast includes Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, Danny Glover, Diane Lane, Robert Urich, Frederic Forrest, D.B. Sweeney, Ricky Schroder, Anjelica Huston, Chris Cooper, Timothy Scott, Glenne Headly, Barry Corbin, William Sanderson and Steve Buscemi.

1:00PM Lonesome Dove - "Leaving" - "On the Trail"

Two former Texas Rangers join a cattle drive to Montana Territory; Call and Gus (Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall) are forced into a confrontation with an old enemy who kidnaps and brutalizes Lorena (Diane Lane).

5:00PM Lonesome Dove - "The Plains" - "Return"
TVPG, CC

Jake's (Robert Urich) involvement with the Suggs gang reaches a tragic climax; Gus (Robert Duvall) reunites with an old flame; Gus is injured during an Indian attack; Call (Tommy Lee Jones) has a final run-in with Blue Duck (Frederic Forrest).
