Doctor Who Officially Slated for Sept. 1st!

Posted on August 23, 2012 at 12:06 pm by Amanda Andonian

The BBC finally confirms that Doctor Who is back on Saturday, September 1st at 9pm. I can’t imagine what took them so long to confirm the date, or why they left it until a little over a week before the premiere, but whatever! I’m just happy that there’s a definite date on the horizon. Check it out!

From their press release:

“BBC AMERICA’s Doctor Who returns after a record-breaking season with five blockbuster episodes on September 1 as part of Supernatural Saturday. Join the Doctor, his companions Amy and Rory (aka the Ponds) and numerous friends on their latest escapades through space and time where they puzzle an unexpected invasion of Earth, save a spaceship full of dinosaurs, don Stetsons in a Wild Wild West adventure and are even kidnapped by the Doctor’s oldest foe. The explosive series concludes with Amy and Rory’s heart-breaking farewell – a race against time through the streets of Manhattan. Will the Doctor really lose the Ponds forever? There’s only one way to find out… Doctor Who premieres Saturday, September 1, 9:00pm ET as part of Supernatural Saturday.
“Lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat on the new season: ‘We have, I think, our biggest range of stories EVER. We’ve got the return of the Daleks AND the Weeping Angels – both of them poll-topping Doctor Who adversaries – in cracking new stories, we’ve got Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (it’s what you’ve always wanted), we’ve got a glorious western with a Cyborg Gunslinger, the most unusual invasion Earth story EVER, and location shooting in New York for the Pond finale.’”

Are you psyched? I’m psyched. Also, I enjoyed the Spinal Tap reference.
