Doctor Who Related Airdates. Finally.



Doctor Who fans, your wait is almost over. EW has learned the premiere date of the new season of the international cult hit, plus some plot details and we have a first look at the show’s marketing art.

BBC America will launch Doctor Who on Saturday, April 23 at 9 p.m ET. That’s Part One of a two-part opener penned by showrunner Steven Moffat (who also did the BBC’s Sherlock reboot — rent it if you’re a Holmes & Watson fan and haven’t seen it yet). This season also includes guest star Mark Sheppard (Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica). Alex Kingston (ER, Flash Forward) is returning for this round too.

+ Episode titles
Set photos and video (with spoilers, obviously)


The premiere description has the Brit team filming in North America for the first time: “The Doctor (Matt Smith), and his companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill), find themselves on a secret summons that takes them on an adventure from the desert in Utah — right to the Oval Office in 1969.”

Doctor Who underwent some changes last season when Moffat took over the lead writing duties on the show and Smith stepped into the starring role. The show jumped to record ratings for BBC America and was a top seller on iTunes behind only AMC’s Mad Men and Fox’s Glee.


Series 6 Titles and Date

The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine has some new info on Series 6. Here’s some highlights.

* The magazine says the series will start on the Easter weekend (23rd April), as was rumoured.
* The working title for episode 1 was The Year of the Moon, but Steven Moffat was the only one who liked it, so it’s being changed.
* A working title for episode 2 was Look Behind You, but that’s also changing.
* Episode 7 will not be called Demons Run anymore, instead either A Good Man Goes to War or His Darkest Hour.
* Episode 11 is called The God Complex. It’s written by Toby Whithouse and is set in a nightmarish hotel.
* Tom MacRae is the final writer confirmed for the series and he is penning episode 10. He previously wrote Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel from Series 2.

Doctor Who Magazine issue 432 is officially out tomorrow.


11th Doctor’s New Look

Back in January, Matt Smith revealed that there was a costume addition coming for the Doctor in Series 6 of Doctor Who. Now we believe we have our first look at what he was referring to.

During filming for episode 12, Smith was photographed wearing a new dark green coat with his shirt and bow tie combo…




Video of filming for that day. Spoiler warning.




More Filming Pictures














Edited to add this pic from James Corden's Twitter:





And Christopher and His Kind has finally been given an airdate: March 19 on BBC2.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

I guess this means they're finally airing the episodes on the same day in the UK and US.

Game of Thrones AND Doctor Who in April? This satisfies me in a very tingly way.

Don't forget Camelot.

My love for Rory, and Arthur Darvill, knows no bounds. :D

Love your use of gifs. :)
therearewords 9th-Mar-2011 08:34 pm (UTC)
And I want to mess up Smiths hair. It isn't TenInch hair, but it still looks very messable.
blancapslove ARE THEY RELATED? jw9th-Mar-2011 08:54 pm (UTC)


hazel_belle Re: ARE THEY RELATED? jw9th-Mar-2011 09:42 pm (UTC)
It is one of the reasons why I cannot do the amy/eleven shipping, although the bigger factor is that Rory & Amy are too cute!!
theshadowpuppet 9th-Mar-2011 08:35 pm (UTC)
god the hair in this post is beautiful.

I really liked James Corden's character. I'm happy to see him return.
theshadowpuppet 9th-Mar-2011 08:40 pm (UTC)
As much as I like James, when he's acting I can only see him Smithy.
eclecticmuse 9th-Mar-2011 08:38 pm (UTC)
Me too! Haters can step to the left and GTFO.
lcacbc 9th-Mar-2011 08:36 pm (UTC)
I don't like Amy.

But Doctor Who's back - FUCK YEAH!
therearewords 9th-Mar-2011 08:39 pm (UTC)
I'm there for you. Still vouching for a Donna return. We could call the episode Seeing Red and Donna will unknowingly save Eleven's ass while Amy is standing on the side, bitching to poor Rory. Rory can stay.
lcacbc 9th-Mar-2011 08:41 pm (UTC)
Lol! IA with all of this. Donna and Rory are flawless <3
eclecticmuse 9th-Mar-2011 08:41 pm (UTC)
Rory can always stay.

Rory > just about everyone.
ladysherlock 9th-Mar-2011 09:03 pm (UTC)
YES! DOCTOR DONNA!
lachica2000 9th-Mar-2011 09:20 pm (UTC)
Can't you just imagine Donna's reaction to him coming back looking about 14 years old?
girltype 10th-Mar-2011 12:26 am (UTC)
God, even for just a few seconds if I could see Donna and 11 together on the screen, I WOULD DIE. Just a cameo, GIVE ME SOMETHING. Her ending was the worst/saddest/angsty/she DESERVED BETTER.

madonna 10th-Mar-2011 01:48 am (UTC)
MAYBE THE DOCTOR WILL FIND A WAY SO DONNA'S BRAIN DOESN'T BLOW UP AND THEY CAN BE COMPANIONS AGAIN. PLEASE GOD. Although...... seeing her without Ten will be very weird lol
neptunepirate 9th-Mar-2011 08:36 pm (UTC)

I'm so late but I'm about to finish watching seasons 4 and 5. Also, Karen Gillan is flawless.
deceitful 9th-Mar-2011 08:39 pm (UTC)
I'm hoping Amy is much less annoying this season.
bluetooth16 9th-Mar-2011 08:41 pm (UTC)
CAN IT BE APRIL 23 ALREADY?

Photobucket

ALSO THERE BETTER BE AN EPIC PREMIERE EVENT WHERE THE CAST SHOWS UP IN AMERICA. PREFERABLY IN NYC LIKE LAST YEAR.
eclecticmuse 9th-Mar-2011 08:42 pm (UTC)
PREFERABLY IN ALABAMA.

............. Well, I can dream, can't I. :/
bluetooth16 9th-Mar-2011 08:43 pm (UTC)
You can dream but my dream is more likely to happen. Sorry bb.
_thirty2flavors 9th-Mar-2011 08:42 pm (UTC)
Man that promo shot is really uncharacteristic for this show. There's only, like, one lens flare, and no weird photoshop swirls. WHAT MADNESS IS THIS.
eclecticmuse 9th-Mar-2011 08:46 pm (UTC)
LMFAO FOREVER
