UKTV Watch continues its “Doctor Who” 50th-anniversary coverage this weekend, with two new instalments of the acclaimed US documentary series, "The Doctors Revisited".

The 11-part series, which has already been well received in America, premiered on British television last weekend, with The Doctors Revisited: the First Doctor and the 1964 serial, The Aztecs, which stars William Hartnell as the First Doctor; and The Doctors Revisited: the Second Doctor and a 1967 serial starring Patrick Troughton as the Second Doctor, The Tomb of the Cybermen.
This weekend sees The Doctors Revisited: the Third Doctor and Jon Pertwee's first serial as the Third Doctor, Speahead from Space on Saturday; and The Doctors Revisited: the Fourth Doctor and the 4-part serial, Pyramids of Mars, with Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor on Sunday.
By 1981, Pertwee and Baker between them had clocked up 12 years of the show's then 18-year run.
As detailed in the listings magazine, Radio Times, the UKTV Watch Doctor Who weekends will continue throughout the rest of October and into November, culminating with The Doctors Revisited: the Eleventh Doctor on Saturday, 16 November.
Elswhere, a whole raft of Doctor Who-themed programmes will be broadcast on BBC television and radio channels over the coming months. These will include the 50th-anniversary Doctor Who episode, The Day of the Doctor, which was filmed earlier this year. It stars Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt — all as different incarnations of the Doctor — as well as Jenna Colman (Clara Oswald), Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) and Jemma Redgrave (Kate Stewart). The 75-minute feature will also see the return of the Daleks and the Zygons.
Meanwhile, this evening, on BBC One, all eleven Doctors will be seen in full high-definition colour in a very special Doctor Who trailer, which is being shown for the first time. It will premiere immediately before Atlantis, which is sheduled to start at 8:20 p.m.
