Doctor Who returns to BBC One during the Easter weekend on Saturday, 30 March, 2013.
The Doctor is back in a fantastic adventure written by the show’s lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat. The episode - the first in a run of 8 - is directed by Colm McCarthy whose previous credits include Hustle, Spooks and Endeavour.
Later adventures in the run include episodes written by Mark Gatiss (Victory of the Daleks, Night Terrors) and Neil Gaiman (The Doctor's Wife). Steven Moffat has promised us that in terms of Doctor Who, 2013 will be a ‘tremendous’ year and we’ll be bringing you more about the forthcoming adventures soon.
The series will run for eight weeks, concluding series seven of Doctor Who, and return later this year for the 50th Anniversary.
