But sinister forces are at work as John Lumic prepares British society for the Ultimate Upgrade reawakening an old enemy. Can the Doctor and Rose save the people from conversion or will they face deletion at the hands of the Cybermen?
These episodes mark the first appearance of the Cybermen in the relaunched series of Doctor Who bringing a brand new look to the Doctor’s terrifying adversaries. Doctor Who is BBC AMERICA’s highest rated series and celebrated its 50th Anniversary last year.
Next, from Emmy Award-nominated director John Downer comes the theatrical event “Wings 3D,” a groundbreaking aerial adventure. This feature-length RealD 3D experience was filmed with revolutionary aerial devices and techniques to fly right alongside birds. This breathtaking journey will take viewers across the world’s most iconic landscapes to the heart of the greatest animal spectacles on Earth: snow geese dash through Monument Valley and New York City, vultures ascend miles above the earth then dive down to huge wildebeest herds below, scarlet macaws race at breakneck speed through the rainforest. Using unique, state-of-the-art 3D cameras in barely accessible and highly dangerous places, the audience has never before been so close to the drama and beauty of nature until now.
Soumya Sriraman, EVP of Licensing and Home Entertainment for BBC Worldwide North America, says, “Once again we are bringingDoctor Who to theaters to give fans a new way to experience the Tenth Doctor – David Tennant, and we are making it extra special with a two-night theatrical event for Tennant fans across the country.
