It's official! Doctor Who's Season 7 premiere date has been announced and the new trailer describes it as "a new season of Doctor Who that changes everything" Check out the new trailer ahead and begin counting down to the first of September, because that's when the long-running sci-fi series will premiere.
Just the other day we shared a brief Dalek-filled clip for Season 7. And at that time, we weren't sure when the series would be returning, though September 1 was the speculated premiere date. BBC America made it official this morning, and in addition to confirming that Season 7 will premiere on 9/1 as part of Supernatural Saturday, they released this trailer…
"This planet - these people are precious to me. And I will defend them to my last breath."
Words of a hero! I also like Amy's "This is not how we roll, and you know it." And "Every story has a beginning, a middle and an end. But not always in that order." Great words to hype up the new season. Here's BBC America's description for the season:
BBC AMERICA’s Doctor Who returns after a record-breaking season with five blockbuster episodes on September 1 as part of Supernatural Saturday. Join the Doctor, his companions Amy and Rory (aka the Ponds) and numerous friends on their latest escapades through space and time where they puzzle an unexpected invasion of Earth, save a spaceship full of dinosaurs, don Stetsons in a Wild Wild West adventure and are even kidnapped by the Doctor's oldest foe. The explosive series concludes with Amy and Rory's heart-breaking farewell - a race against time through the streets of Manhattan. Will the Doctor really lose the Ponds forever? There's only one way to find out... Doctor Who premieres Saturday, September 1, 9:00pm ET as part of Supernatural Saturday.
The season will open with "Asylum of the Daleks," which has the Doctor on a very dangerous mission. Here's the description for the episode (spoiler warning!)
