Doctor Who Series 7 Premiere Date Confirmed?


Series 7 of Doctor Who is almost upon us. That much is obvious from all the new trailers, images and plot details that have been released these past few weeks. But one very important piece of information has been left out: an actual premiere date. At the BFI Southbank screening of the season premiere last week, it was announced that the episode would air on September 1, 2012, which has yet to be officially confirmed by the BBC or BBC America.

Now, Doctor Who TV has reported that a trailer from BBC America had revealed the airdate to be September 8, 2012, only for it to later change back to its previous caption that said “Coming This Fall”. Could it be that the Americans will only get to see the show a week after the British? I certainly hope not as that would be a step down from last season.

The BBC America website later stated that the broadcast date would be announced soon this week. The situation is a very strange one indeed, but as a result of this mystery, the anticipation for the new season has only heightened.

Here’s the BBC America trailer for Doctor Who which reveals the airdate before changing back to its previous version. Check it out below and let us know what you think.

    Last year BBC America aired a week after the British one did. The big spoiler at the end of the season made it almost impossible to be on the internet and not get it spoiled before it aired here.

    1. Juansays:

      True, but that was only for one episode, A Good Man Goes To War. If it happens to all the episodes this season it’ll be incredibly hard to avoid spoilers. Fortunately it looks more likely that it will air on the same day!

    2. That’s how Brits feel with 90% of decent TV shows nowadays without using torrents.

    3. Ronniesays:

      Series 6 on BBC America aired on the same day as BBC, every Saturday, but because of the time difference, it would be on the internet before it aired on TV in America.

        @2294b9100533551c97905a2f465c7002:disqus He was talking about the one episode that aired a week late because of Memorial Day weekend or something, which was A Good Man Goes To War.

  2. sorry but after the amount of time british fans have to wait for some sci fi shows a week is nothing in comparison and the air date is still not confirmed in the uk

    1. Juansays:

      Yes, I have said that it wasn’t confirmed anywhere for either UK or USA. And true, but still, waiting while trying to avoid spoilers is still tough, especially when it’s Doctor Who!

  3. Anonsays:

    lol I’m pretty sure the trailer here in the uk said 25th of August at some point then changed back to Coming Soon

    1. Juansays:

      I think they originally wanted to air it then but then changed the plans somewhere along the way as Matt Smith also said they would air in August.

  4. Can’t wait. Tick Tock.
