In celebration of the March 17 debut of “Doctor Who” on SciFi Channel, I thought I would post one of the teasers SciFi has been running for the show.
SciFi has also decided to run “Doctor Who” as a two-hour premiere with back-to-back episodes starting at 9 p.m. ET. The series debuts with “Rose,” which introduces us to the new Doctor and his soon-to-be companion Rose while battling the Nestene consciousness that is turning plastic shop dummies and dust bins into living, evil creatures. “Rose” will be followed by the second episode, “The End of the World,” in which the Doctor takes Rose five billion years into the future to a space platform designed to give the universe’s rich and influential lifeforms a front-row seat to Earth’s final seconds of existence…but something goes horribly wrong on the space station, threatening the lives of all on board.
