UK Astronaut Scheduling Confirmed

The BBC has confirmed the scheduling details for both The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon, the episodes that comprise the first adventure in the 2011 run of Doctor Who!

Doctor Who Series 6 will kick off with The Impossible Astronaut on BBC One on Saturday 23 April at 6.00-6.45pm, quashing our earlier speculation that scary moments in the new series trailer that lead to broadcast of a cut version on the digital CBBC channel would result in a later broadcast time, and perhaps a restoration of the 7pm start time in the UK.

Meanwhile part two, Day of the Moon, concludes the adventure with a mammoth 60 minute time slot, running on the following Saturday 30 April in the 6.00-7.00pm timeslot on BBC One!

The Steven Moffat-penned episodes star Matt Smith as the Doctor, Karen Gillan as Amy Pond and Arthur Darvill as Rory, with Alex Kingston reprising River Song. Mark Sheppard and Stuart Milligan guest as Canton Everett Delaware III and Richard Nixon, respectively.
