Is it going to be on SciFi channel in the US or only on BBCAmerica. I ask because BBC America is no longer part of my cable package. In the past it was on SciFi but 2wks after it aired on BBC. I don’t mind waiting the 2 weeks, but will be sad if I don’t get it on any channel.

Ok, article (with some minor spoilers) here.
Just over two weeks!
grin

I like this quote from the article:

Smith added: “There’s one fan who compares me to a hedgehog a lot, which is puzzling…”

LOL

Razela, I don’t know if it will be on the Sci Fi channel.  Just went and checked out their site, and they don’t mention anything about the new season.

Bah! I’ll just have to download it illegally each week like I did with Dexter. It’s just a pain, that’s all.

Perhaps it was a sonic screwgun?  Like a pneumatic nailgun, but more sci-fi?

Ok, I have the new copy of Doctor Who Magazine in my hands, and since I can’t find the information on the first five episodes online anywhere, I’ll type it out here.

Episode 1: The Eleventh Hour.

In a nutshell: Box falls out of sky. Man falls out of box. The Doctor is in no fit state to save the world today. He’s only just regenerated. His sonic screwdriver is bust. The TARDIS has crashed and burned, and lies wrecked in someone’s back garden.
But an alien convict has escaped. Planet Earth is in terrible danger. The patients on the coma ward of the local hospital in Leadworth, near Gloucester, have been seen wandering around the village - how is that possible? And what’s with that strange crack in the wall, curving like a crooked smile, and the distant, echoing voice coming from within?

Episode 2: The Beast Below

In a nutshell: For Amy’s first trip in the TARDIS, the Doctor whisks her far into the future. The human race clings to survival deep among the stars, while sinister Smilers rule over their every actions. But a terrible secret threatens to bring their fragile society tumbling down…

Episode 3: Victory of the Daleks

In a nutshell: It’s the Second World War, and Britain has developed a new weapon: metal soldiers, built like miniature tanks, designed by an ingenious professor. They’re called Ironsides, they’re deadly, and they’re here to help.
But the Doctor knows that’s all a lie. They’re the Daleks, and they have their own agenda. But why don’t they recognise him? Why are they subservient to Churchill? And what is the purpose of the Progenitor? This time, there might not be a happy ending…

Episodes 4 & 5: The Time of Angels / Flesh and Stone

In a nutshell: Remember River Song mentioning the “Crash of the Byzantium” in Silence in the Library? Well, in this story, that happens: the Byzantium space ship crashes into an abandoned temple. This is no simple disaster, but a Code Red nightmare, as the Byzantium is carrying a Weeping Angel in its vault. River Song elaborately recruits the Doctor and Amy to join her and a party of cleric-soldiers for a journey into dark catacombs cheerily known as “a maze of the dead”. Cue joyous tea and scones, with nothing bad happening to anyone at all…

Also, there’s some good new stuff on the BBC’s Doctor Who page.

Less than 24 hours to go!
