THE TIMEY-WIMEY OF DOCTOR WHO
BBC America, 9:00 p.m. ET
BBC America sure isn’t making it easy for me to keep trying to persuade the uninitiated of the intrinsic value of Doctor Who – not with a title for a Who special that’s as fanciful as this one. (It reminds me of trying, all those years ago, to insist to my understandably dubious friends that a show called Buffy the Vampire Slayer was truly TV worth watching.) Timey-Wimey is cute Whovian for time travel, and this new special examines all the trips back to the future, and to the past and present, that the Doctor and his companions have taken over the years – millions of them. And if I haven’t persuaded you to tune in by now, I won’t waste any more of your timey-wimey. Or any more of miney.
