HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on BBC America
The new season of Doctor Who with Jodie Whittaker in the title role kicks off with a two-part episode titled “Spyfall,” which showrunner Chris Chibnall promises to be “an absolute action-packed, location-packed, rollercoaster ride of a story. Probably one of our biggest stories ever in the history of the show.” The story, which features guest stars Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry, finds MI6 turning to the Doctor and her friends for help after intelligence agents around the world are under attack from alien forces. They’re “coming back with a bang,” Chibnall says, for the premiere, and the action doesn’t seem to stop there. “This season, we’ll be delving deeper into the Doctor Who universe. There will be some returning monsters.” Daleks not included. —Gerrad Hall
HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix
“The Circle has no chill.” That’s how one player sums up this three-week social experiment/reality competition where the handful of contestants don’t meet face to face but are seen only through a social media platform. That, of course, means they can describe themselves however they want, use any photos they want, and say anything they want. Popularity and influence are the goal as they catfish each other and try to avoid elimination — all in pursuit of a $100,000 grand prize. Instamoney. —Gerrad Hall
