BBC America will be having a Christmas Eve and Day marathon of all of the Doctor Who Christmas specials from the New Who era of the series. These date all the way back to 2005 when the series had its first Christmas special that introduced David Tennant as the 10th Doctor.
The first one will be starting at 12 PM ET on BBC America and will be “The Christmas Invasion.” All of the Christmas specials shown will feature the 10th Doctor, 11th Doctor and 12th Doctor. The 9th and 13th Doctors do not have their own Christmas specials, although the 13th Doctor does appear in the 2017 Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time,” which mostly features the 12th Doctor and 1st Doctor.
