    TV Picks: 'Doctor Who,' Cosby, Burnett, Silverman, Americana
    "The Day of the Doctor" (BBC America, Saturday), "The Night of the Doctor" and "The Last Day" (online, at your will), "An Adventure in Space and Time" (BBC America, Friday). "Doctor Who," the television show/British national monument about an alien gadabout who travels all of creation, from end to end and first to last, in a living blue police call box, turns 50 Saturday. It will be marked properly, not with a look back (though there have been those as well) but with an actual, brand new, extremely special episode, "The Day of the Doctor," whose particulars are being kept very secret, except for the bits that aren't. What we do know is that it will feature, dream-teamed, the current occupant of the part Matt Smith (the Eleventh Doctor), and his predecessor David Tennant (Doctor 10). For the uninitiated, the character regenerates every so often, taking on the shape of a new actor -- but every fresh Doctor remains identical with all his previous selves. It's not like Sean Connery and Roger Moore playing James Bond one after the other; rather, it's as if James Bond looked and acted like Sean Connery one moment and, after a brief interlude of special effects, looked and acted like Roger Moore the next. (And then the Connery Bond and the Moore had an adventure together, side by side.) We know as well that Billie Piper will reprise her role as Tenth-Doctor companion Rose Tyler, and that John Hurt will be in it, also as the Doctor, in some way yet to be explained. (Let's call him Doctor Too.) Surprises are in store, one assumes.
