THERE is no denying that two Time Lords are better than one, especially where the Cybermen are concerned. In Doctor Who: The Next Doctor, the first of five Doctor Who specials to air on BBC America throughout 2009 and into early 2010, The Doctor (David Tennant) arrives in a snow-covered Victorian London on Christmas Eve, 1851. It is no ordinary holiday, however, as the Cybermen, one of The Doctor’s oldest and deadliest enemies are also in town.
When The Doctor begins to investigate a spate of mysterious deaths, he is surprised to meet another Doctor (David Morrissey), complete with his own sonic screwdriver and companion, Rosita (Velile Tshabalala). How could this be possible? Could this Doctor be a future regeneration? If so, where are his memories?
The two must combine forces to defeat the ruthless Miss Hartigan (Dervla Kirwan), who is the Cyberman’s human ally, but are two Doctors enough to stop the rise of the CyberKing?
Doctor Who: The Next Doctor makes its BBC America premiere on Saturday, June 27th @ 9 p.m. EST/PST.
