Although “Doctor Who” was previously announced to be returning on an unspecified date in April, fans should be pleased to learn that the Doctor will back on BBC America even earlier. The next new episode airs March 30.
Starring Matt Smith and brand new companion Jenna Louise Coleman, “Doctor Who” celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2013. The show’s seventh modern season began last September with five episodes that bid farewell to companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) Pond. The Christmas special, “The Snowmen,” officially introduced Coleman’s Clara and teased that her connection to the mysterious Oswin Oswald (also played by Coleman in the premiere, “Asylum of the Daleks”) would be soon be revealed.
