Karen Gillan as Amy Pond with Dalek and Time Lord

What Can We Learn from a Free Gift?

Karen Gillan as Amy Pond with Dalek and Time Lord

We’re just 12 days away from September 1st – the date upon which the smart money is on Doctor Who returning to BBC One.

So why is it so quiet?

Short of a couple of new photographs (see later), nothing is coming out of the BBC to confirm or deny the existence of a TARDIS-shaped slot on Saturday evenings fro September, kicking off with Asylum of the Daleks.


There is this, a small mention of Daleks in the foot of the Radio Times’ preview of their next issue – which would cover the period from September 1st to 7th.

It’s all in this week’s Radio Times, out Tuesday priced £1.40. And you’ll want to check back again next week for our free Dalek wall-chart!

Of course, this might just be part of a Radio Times build-up to a September 8th launch.

The fact is, until the BBC confirms the broadcast date, we just won’t know for sure…
