The new Doctor will make his U.S. debut on April 17th on BBC America, as Doctor Who hits the airwaves again, not long after it does in the U.K. (anyone have an exact date on that?). The first two episodes, “The Eleventh Hour” and “The Beast Below”, were written by new exec runner Steven Moffat (who previously wrote some of the best at creepiest episodes) and the third is “Victory of the Daleks”, which as you might think features some Daleks, written by Mark Gatiss. See below for the full press release, and also check out the trailer – you’ll see some familiar enemies (including the weeping angels from “Blink”), but it ends with an interesting reptilian skull – a foreshadow of a major enemy?
As an unfortunate followup to a previous story, it appears that Andrew Koenig’s body has been found in a Vancouver park. A police conference is set for 5pm PT (8pm ET). Our condolences to the Koenig family. Update: Walter Koenig confirmed in a press conference. “My son took his own life,” he said.
