Word is out the Doctor Who Christmas Special will air in the US this year on the same day it does in the UK; December 25th! Usually it lags over here by several months, but last year they did announce that Torchwood would air here 5 hours after it aired in London. As it turned out that didn’t happen, although the lag was no where near as long as it could have been. We will see if they keep the promise of same day release this year or not.
There are two other SF holiday specials to look forward to as well. Eureka and Warehouse 13 have been announced as running back to back on Tuesday, December 7th, beginning at 9PM Eastern/Pacific time.
