The BBC have confirmed an air date for BBC Three’s 50th anniversary celebration, Doctor Who: Greatest Monsters & Villains Weekend.
The countdown weekend, the voting for which has been continuing for a while on the official Doctor Who website (voting has now closed), will begin on Friday 15th November at 7pm on BBC Three. The weekend will count down the nominees until Doctor Who‘s greatest monster/villain, as voted for by fans, is revealed.
The BBC stated:
The fantastic foes that have gone up against our time-traveling hero in his first-half century are a huge part of Doctor Who. By turns scary, funny, iconic, thrilling and on occasions charismatic, they help define the show’s enduring appeal and fifty years after the Daleks were created, the monsters of Doctor Who remain an integral part of what makes the series so special.
Doctor Who: Greatest Monsters & Villains Weekend will be a marvellous salute to those baddies who have blighted the Doctor’s life and added so much excitement to ours! We’ll be bringing you more information nearer to 15 November, but in the meantime, thanks again for voting!
