BBC America Schedules Doctor Appointment for Sept. 8

Not to blow my own horn (too much), but I called it! In a piece of reasoning worth of the Ninth Doctor, I predicted that BBC America would hold back the premiere of DOCTOR WHO Series 7 for one week, due to the Labor Day holiday weekend, when viewers will be outdoors, rather than perched in front of the TV. Odds are the BBC will debut Series 7 on Sept. 1.

Lo and behold, BBC America has done exactly, that, trumpeting the scheduling of “Asylum of the Daleks” for Saturday, Sept. 8, at 9 p.m. ET. Check out the promo (which is really just the Series 7 long trailer with a concrete date inserted at the end, but let’s face it, this is an awesome teaser!)

ETA: On Aug. 22, BBC America changed its mind and moved the premiere forward to Sept. 1, thus invalidating the end of this trailer, so it was removed. Please take a look at my Aug. 22 post, “America’s Appointment With the Doctor Moved Up!” for the new trailer — featuring new scenes!

Somehow, having a definite date makes it both easier and more difficult to wait for the first episode to actually air! I mean, c’mon, the way Matt Smith delivers the line, “Dinosaurs — on a spaceship!” is just as amazing as… well, dinosaurs on a spaceship.
