It’s official – Doctor Who on September 1st in UK AND US
by Doc on Aug.22, 2012, under Television
Just as it was looking like the debut of the seventh series of Doctor Who wouldn’t be seen until at least the weekend of September 8th, the BBC has finally confirmed that “Asylum of the Daleks” will debut on Saturday, September 1st on BBC One. And as an added bonus, a series of 5 mini-webisodes will start online on August 27th called “Pond Life”, and as the name implies it will get u caught up with the Ponds since the end of the last series. Look for it on the official site.
Still no word, however, from BBC America as to when it will air. The hope is that they will keep in sync with same-day broadcast, but currently they show a Series 6 marathon followed by the two-hour “The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe” at 8pm ET. No reason that couldn’t change, however… 🙂
UPDATE: BBC America DID confirm a short time ago that they will indeed air it the same day, at 9:00 ET! And SPACE just tweeted the same day and time in Canada…
