Doctor Who fan and ex-Newsround presenter Lizo Mzimba has confirmed on his Twitter page that there will be no press launch for this year’s Easter special, Planet of the Dead.
The launch, previously scheduled to take place this week, has been dumped because the episode, which will hit our screens on Easter Saturday, still isn’t finished.
This isn’t the first time an episode of the programme has had a close finish in post-production - last year’s series finale, Journey’s End, was locked off just hours before its broadcast on BBC One.
The fact there’s no press launch will result in heightened media promotion from the cast, and there’s already been several interviews confirmed. We’ll be posting a full round-up of all of the confirmed appearances soon!
