Doctor Who Season 7: What to Expect...

at . Comments

BBC America has confirmed that Doctor Who Season 7 will premiere on Saturday, September 1 and that the fall season will consist of five episodes, the culmination of which the final installment for Arthur Darvill (as Rory) and Karen Gillan (as Amy).

What else can fans expect from the premiere and other episodes to come?

Teased executive producer Steven Moffat in a BBC press release:

"We’ve got the return of the Daleks AND the Weeping Angels – both of them poll-topping Doctor Who adversaries – in cracking new stories, we’ve got Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (it’s what you’ve always wanted), we’ve got a glorious western with a Cyborg Gunslinger, the most unusual invasion Earth story EVER, and location shooting in New York for the Pond finale.”

To many, of course, the real focus of this run will be on Rory and Amy. How will these beloved characters be written out?

Moffat wouldn't say, but he did offer up the following preview:

"The story of the Ponds hasn't even begun to end yet - they've got loads more adventures with their mad friend the Doctor ahead of them, and we'll see more of their lives and Time Lord-complicated relationship than we ever have before. This more than any other, is the year of the Ponds."

Kay, I agree with @Dale. Back when it wasn't on BBC America, and wasn't concentrated in the USA, there where NO BREAKS. It's getting really old, and honestly I think a lot of British fans will stop watching because of the long breaks. I really really hope this one isn't as long as last years!


You say the fall season will consist of 5 episodes; does this mean that there will be a gap in the middle of the season? If so I am getting really sick of this, in England we have never had a lengthy gap in the middle of a season until last year and that drove me crazy. Hopefully their wont be a lengthy gap.


What interests me most is the amount of episodes River Song will be in. She's legendary-wait for it-dary.
