This just in: The Doctor and Clara’s first, well second, well… third adventure together will be against something called “The Spoonheads.” BBC America has confirmed that the episode that will air Saturday, March 30th at 8:00pm ET/PT will be entitled “The Bells of St. John” and will take place in London of all places and see our heroes take on something sinister in the WiFi.
The rest of the press release reads as follows:
The Doctor (Matt Smith) is joined by his new companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) for the latest set of incredible adventures through space and time. The duo finds new adversaries and familiar friends around every corner as they journey from the bottom of the ocean in a submarine to the center of the TARDIS and beyond. The Cybermen make a thunderous return and the Ice Warrior arrives in an unexpected place.
Steven Moffat, executive producer and lead writer, said, “It’s the 50th year of Doctor Who and look what’s going on! We’re up in the sky and under the sea! We’re running round the rings of an alien world and then a haunted house. There’s new Cybermen, new Ice Warriors and a never before attempted journey to the centre of the TARDIS. And in the finale, the Doctor’s greatest secret will at last be revealed! If this wasn’t already our most exciting year it would be anyway!”
Also appearing this season are guest stars Dougray Scott (Desperate Housewives, Mission: Impossible II), Warwick Davis (Life’s Too Short, Harry Potter), Celia Imrie (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Richard E Grant (Iron Lady, Dracula), Jessica Raine (Call the Midwife) and Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders, Law & Order: UK). Additionally, mother and daughter Dame Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) and Rachael Stirling (Tipping the Velvet) will appear on screen together for the first time.
Doctor Who is but the beginning of BBC America’s Supernatural Saturday block. At 9 pm, we’ll see the premiere of Orphan Black, a science fiction series which has a young woman see a person who looks exactly like herself (might it be herself?) commit suicide. After that, at 10 pm, our old pals Chris, Jonah, and Matt will premiere with the first episode of the new season of The Nerdist!
Get ready, world!
