We find out when the second of this year's specials is to air, what it's called and who's accompanying The Doctor in his final outing.

Despite previous reports suggesting otherwise, the second of this year's Doctor Who specials is to be broadcast in "November(ish)."  This rather vague timeframe was announced today by Russell T Davies on the BBC One show, Breakfast.

The showrunner also revealed that Bernard Cribbins will play the companion to the Doctor in David Tennant's finale as the Time Lord whllst adding that the first of this year's specials, Planet of the Dead, is now finished - having being completed at 11.30pm, the previous night.

UK television listings magazine, Total TV Guide, is stating that the second special is called The Waters of Mars. Whether or not it broadcasts during November itself is up for debate with Davies' addition of "ish" to the month, suggesting that a Halloween Doctor Who episode may still be a possibility.

Planet of the Dead screens on Saturday, 11th April on BBC One at 6.45pm with a simulcast on BBC HD.

Any word on when the Easter special is to air on BBC America? The listings don't show it coming on this weekend.

Don't know why many of you bother to watch. Why don't you buzz off and write your own hugely popular family entertainment show?

And you are on Den of Geek because ...?

OBtech, I'm afraid you've got a long wait coming, since the Christmas special hasn't even aired yet on the SciFi channel-- and they've got the first US rights to DW!

This means Sutekh or Ice Warriors, I should think.
