Bookmark and Share No New Doctor Who in North America Next Week

5/21/2011 05:13:00 pm - Reported by Marcus

Doctor Who fans in North America will have an extra long wait to watch the conclusion to this week's episode The Rebel Flesh.

The second part of the two part story will not be broadcast on BBC America or Canada's SPACE until Saturday June 4. The reason is the Memorial Day holiday weekend which takes place in the States next weekend. Memorial Day commemorates U.S. soldiers who died while on military service and unofficially marks the start of the summer holiday season. TV schedulers try to avoid planning any new programming over the weekend when a large number of people are away from home.

BBC America will be broadcasting a series of episodes from Matt Smith's time as the Doctor over the weekend. Both channels will show The Almost People, the conclusion to the two part story, on 4th June.
