Thanks to the Comic Con panel featuring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Toby Whithouse and outgoing execs Beth Willis and Piers Wenger, we now know that Doctor Who Series 6 is set to continue on BBC America on August 27th!
Given the pattern of BBC One and BBC America attempting to sync broadcast of the series to reduce spoilers and pirating, it’s a fair guess that this is also the date the series will return in the UK, with the amazingly-titled Let’s Kill Hitler!
Matt and Karen’s presence at the San Diego Comic Con panel is to appear on a BBC America panel, so we can be pretty much certain that the date is reliable.
Note, of course, that the series’ return to BBC One is yet to be confirmed.
So, it’s time to set our alarm clocks, awaken the drones here at K Towers and generally get really excited.
Doctor Who is back in just over one month’s time!
