"Tennant's remaining two specials, The End of Time, Part One and Part Two, are the most anticipated episodes in the history of the series � which is why we're airing them just a day after their UK premiere."

Following the specials, the Tenth Doctor will regenerate into actor Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor, whose adventures will begin on BBC AMERICA in 2010. BAFTA award-winning writer Steven Moffat is the new lead writer and executive producer.
