Doctor Who‘s Tenth Doctor Seasons Will Soon Air on… Disney XD?

Allons-XD!

Disney may not be able to take over Doctor Who entirely as they like to do with everything else—which I’ve been pretty on board with results-wise, honestly—but they’ve managed to at least grab part of it. The seasons with David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor (new Who seasons 2-4) will air on Disney XD starting at 9PM after the channel’s Fantastic Four premiere on May 9.

Eight more episodes will air daily from Saturday, June 13 through Saturday, June 20, with the rest of the schedule left unannounced.

Sadly, Disney XD’s target audience of 6-11 year olds (“hyper-targeting boys” specifically, because girls don’t like “worlds full of humor, unexpected fun and inspiring action-filled adventures,” I guess. Sigh) will be missing a bit of the story, as the series will start with the season 2 episode “New Earth” and skip right past Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant’s first appearance as the doctor, and you know, the initial introduction of “New Earth”‘s villain, Cassandra.

Ummmmm.

But who cares!? A young generation will be treated to the best three seasons of Doctor Who (fight me) in a place they’re much more likely to watch it than its traditional home of BBC America. It’s a wonderful day for nerds!

…Right?
