“Doctor Who” fans, the premiere date for the Doctor’s return is drawing near. How will the season opener baptize Matt Smith as the Doctor? SciFiMafia has the summary and trailer for the season premiere of “Doctor Who” right here.
This is the first season of “Doctor Who” in which Steven Moffat takes over as showrunner and also the first season for Matt Smith to inherit the mantle of the Time Lord from the tenth Doctor, David Tennant. Karen Gillan plays the Doctor’s new companion, the “enigmatic” Amy Pond. Together, our new Doctor and companion will “explore sixteenth century Venice, France during the 1890s, and the United Kingdom in the far future, now an entire nation floating in space” and face familiar enemies like the Daleks and Weeping Angels and new baddies including “alien vampires, humanoid reptiles, and a silent menace that follows the Doctor and Amy wherever they go.”
Synopsis for Season Premiere “The Eleventh Hour”, written by Steven Moffat
The Doctor has regenerated into a brand-new man, but danger strikes before he can even recover, as Doctor Who returns for a new series. With the TARDIS wrecked and the sonic screwdriver destroyed, the new Doctor has just 20 minutes to save the whole world – and only Amy Pond to help him.
