Since the Doctor Who Christmas special introduced the Doctor's new companion and an intriguing new mystery to the science fiction series, fans are likely to be even more eager to know when the series will return for the rest of its seventh season. The date has been announced and it's looking like the Doctor will be back to his time and space traveling adventures in late March, just in time for Easter in fact.

DrWho-online received the official premiere date from BBC One. Season 7 will be back on March 30th, which is "Easter Saturday" (or "Holy Saturday"), the day before Easter Sunday. The holiday probably isn't especially relevant to the premiere beyond the date. Then again, the rumored title for the first episode back is "The Bells of St. John," so there is a saintly-sounding tie-in there. Doctor Who Online laid out the remaining episodes, including the credited writers and directors, and in some cases, the rumored or confirmed titles.
7.6: The Bells Of St.John - [W: Steven Moffat / D: Colm McCarthy] - Rumoured Title
?7.7: Untitled - [W: Neil Cross / D: Farren Blackburn]
?7.8: Untitled - [W: Mark Gatiss / D: Douglas Mackinnon]
?7.9: Phantoms Of The Hex - [W: Neil Cross / D: Jamie Payne] - Rumoured Title
?7.10: Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS - [W: Stephen Thompson / D: Mat King] - Confirmed Title
?7.11: The Crimson Horror - [W: Mark Gatiss / D: Saul Metzstein] - Rumoured Title
?7.12: Untitled - [W: Neil Gaiman / D: Stephen Wolfenden]
?7.13: Untitled - [W: Steven Moffat / D: TBC]

As you'll note, Neil Gaiman, who won a Hugo award for penning last season's "The Doctor's Wife," is set to return to write another episode this season. There's no title yet, but we did share some details about that episode a couple of months ago.

So, mark your calendars for March 30. No official confirmation that BBC America will stick to the same schedule as BBC One, but that will presumably be the case. We'll post an update if it isn't.
