The time slot for the second Doctor Who 60th anniversary special, Wild Blue Yonder, has been confirmed.


Wild Blue Yonder will air on Saturday 2nd December on BBC One and BBC iPlayer at 6:30pm, so Whovians can now add this to their calendars and prepare for a "dark" and "weird" special episode, as teased by showrunner Russell T Davies.

Davies previously hinted at what's to come in the second episode, and suggested that "it's kind of scary".

Speaking at a Q&A following a screening of The Star Beast, Davies said: "The next one is called Wild Blue Yonder, where the TARDIS goes further than ever before – and it's weird, the next one, it's kind of scary."

"It's not super scary, it's just weird," he continued. It's genuinely weird, it's really nice – that stretched the whole design team as to how to make it and how to get this stuff on screen.

The 60th anniversary specials have been all anyone can talk about in recent weeks, and it will see David Tennant and Catherine Tate reunite for three episodes of Doctor Who goodness.
