How Do You Watch Yours?

We’ve still got over two weeks to go before the return of Doctor Who, but already people are making plans about how they will be watching The Impossible Astronaut!

While the time is still to be confirmed, we’re all working on the fact that the episode should air on BBC One on Easter Saturday (the day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday) at some point in the evening after the football results have been read out.

As you probably know the episode is the first of a two-part story set in the 1960s and sees regulars Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill joined by semi-regular Alex Kingston with guest appearances from Mark Sheppard and Stuart Milligan.

Hopes are high for a return to the 7pm broadcast time after a recent trailer was deemed “too scary” for childen earlier in the evening, but if you haven’t got family and friends to invite round you can meet up with other fans at the Lass O’Gowrie on 36 Charles Street, Manchester M1 7DB from 6pm to 8.30pm where they will be airing the first episode of Doctor Who Series 6 on a big screen in the Salmon Rooms!

Sounds like a pretty good option to me, and given the renowned menu and friendly bar staff at that very establishment, one that I’m seriously considering!
