New 'Doctor Who' travels to BBC America in April

Posted on

BBC America announced today that the network will premiere its new Doctor Who season on April 17. The sci-fi show now stars 27-year-old Matt Smith as the 11th incarnation of the time-traveling Doctor. Lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat has attracted the likes of Coraline author Neil Gaiman, Love Actually director Richard Curtis, and Torchwood scribes Chris Chibnall and Toby Whithouse to write future episodes for the series, which will be set in 16th-century Venice, 1890s France, and a distant-future United Kingdom (with the entire nation floating in space).
