BBC to air three ‘Doctor Who’ specials in August

As we wait with breathless anticipation for the second half of Series Six of Doctor Who, the BBC has just announced that it will air three Doctor Who specials in the run up to the show’s return Saturday August 27th .

The specials will feature celebrity guests such as 30 Rock’s Scott Adsit, singer-songwriter Amanda Palmer, The Nerdist podcast’s Chris Hardwick, former Philadelphia Eagle Hugh Douglas, WIRED Magazine’s Adam Rogers and Anthrax’s Scott Ian and many others as they essentially geek out discussing their favorite Doctors, the scariest monsters, and the bravest (and foxiest) companions from the series.  This eclectic and articulate gathering should make for some stimulating television, and should finally put to rest the myth that nobody “cool” watches Doctor Who (take that, Mom!). Take a look below for a preview:
