To get ya all geared up for Doctor Who‘s return in the fall BBC America will be airing four new documentaries the weekends leading up to the premiere. While last year they ran a few “Best of…” specials this time they’re taking things in a a decidedly more scientific direction. Here’s the list of specials with their air dates,

In addition to the announcement of the new programs they also released four, sweet lookin’ images for each one,

I think these sound fascinating, especially, go figure, The Women of Doctor Who special. Sure, that one is least scientific of the bunch, but who doesn’t love learning about the ladies? And that promo text seems to hint we could learn a bit more about his next companion played by Jenna-Louise Coleman. Plus, I love that they used Idris, aka the TARDIS, on the poster for the special.

Hmm, and it’s quite noticeable that Christopher Eccelston is absent from these images while both Matt Smith and David Tennant are used. Hmm…

What do you think? Do they sound interesting to you? Which are you most excited for? Or are you just wanting new Doctor Who, now? Yeah, aren’t we all.
