There’s a lot to look forward to: the return of Alex Kingston as River Song; an American-based adventure by Steven Moffat (Sherlock, Coupling); and an episode written by Neil Gaiman (The Graveyard Book, American Gods). And though this promo says the Doctor is “coming to America – BBC America” on Saturday, April 23, he’ll be seen in Canada the same night on Space.
And for some lucky fans attending WonderCon in San Francisco this Sunday, a few more clips are promised at the Doctor Who panel and Q&A in the Esplanade Ballroom, 11:30am. Panelists will be Neil Gaiman, premiere episode guest star Mark Sheppard (Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica) and director Toby Haynes (Doctor Who, Being Human). More festivities surrounding this season’s launch are sure to follow next week, and we’ll post them as soon as we are able.
Our DVD strategy will be a bit different this year. We will still release the complete season box set near the end of the year, but we’ll also be releasing moderately priced DVDs that follow the broadcasts more swiftly. Sign up here for First to Know.
