The BBC’s Official Doctor Who site has “officially” confirmed the date and time for the broadcast of Episode 1 of the new series, Partners in Crime.
Can you make 6.20pm on Saturday April 5th, BBC One?
A nice, early start that harkens back to the 1970s – Final Score out of the way, bit of BBC News, some gentle comedy or variety and then… dum-de-dum, dum-de-dum dum-de-dum oo-eee-oooooo!
This, for me, is Doctor Who’s optimum timeslot, regardless of 1970s nostalgia (I’m not really that old…).
For the completists out there, meanwhile, Doctor Who Confidential will return with the usual behind-the-scenes chats with the cast and crew, starting at 7.05pm on BBC Three.
