‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: Series 6 American premiere date announced… but not the British date

BBC America has announced that it will air the opener of the latest Doctor Who season on Saturday, April 23 at 9pm Eastern. It’ll be part one of a two-parter, and it’s the story shot in Utah. From Inside TV, which had the scoop:

The premiere description has the Brit team filming in North America for the first time: “The Doctor (Matt Smith), and his companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill), find themselves on a secret summons that takes them on an adventure from the desert in Utah — right to the Oval Office in 1969.”

Now, the funny thing is that the BBC has not yet announced when it will air the season opener… though since we were given a general promise of Easter, and Easter is April 24, it seems likely that that same episode will air on BBC One on that same day, April 23.

That said, it would be totally typical of my luck if, for some bizarre reason, Doctor Who was to air in the U.S. first, just after I’ve made the move to the U.K. What else did they think I came here for?!

Some nice new art from BBC America to promote the new season:
