'Doctor Who' Season 11 Premiere Date Announced

Longtime Who fans will likely notice that the show is moving from Saturday nights to Sunday nights. Finally, the BBC has come out with the season 11 premiere date for the USA and the United Kingdom, and happily, it's not too far away.

And we also have the title of the premiere to theorise about: 'The Woman Who Fell To Earth'. It will be screened on BBC America in the United States and BBC One in the UK. But fret not, if you happen to miss the first airing, BBC America will re-air the episode in a special encore during its regular, prime-time spot. Jodie Whittaker's Doctor is about to burst into Sunday nights, and make the end of the weekend so much more exciting.

While we've seen a few images and trailers, Whovians have been waiting with feverish anticipation for the premiere date of the new season of Doctor Who. (Also, move the sofa away from the wall so parents can hide behind it during the scary bits).

Does this mean that we'll be getting more earth-bound adventures for our new Doctor?

America announced today that the new season of its flagship science fiction show, the first to star Jodie Whittaker, will screen on Sunday rather than in the series' traditional Saturday slot. For months, all we've known is that the upcoming season starring new Doctor Jodie Whittaker would launch sometime in the fall. New showrunner Chris Chibnall has been keen to emphasise that this is basically the 2005 reboot all over again and is hoping to wipe the slate clean.

Are you excited about the new season of Doctor Who?

Whittaker will be joined in this 10-episode series by Mandip Gill, Tosin Cole and The Chase's Bradley Walsh, who will respectively play her companions Yasmin, Ryan and Graham.
