This year, Australia is only two weeks behind the UK for Doctor Who — “The Eleventh Hour” — the first episode of the fifth series of New Who will be airing on ABC at 7:30pm this Sunday April 18th, BUT it will be available on iView from midnight on Friday April 16th. This series marks Steven Moffat’s takeover from Russell T Davies as showrunner — I’m sure that Moffat’s style will give us plenty to talk about; here’s hoping that he delights us with his storytelling and doesn’t disappoint us too much from a feminist perspective. This episode also introduces Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor and Karen Gillan as his companion, Amy Pond.
For now, this thread is a spoiler-free zone. Feel free to share non-spoilery squee, and discuss promotional material (including trailers) that were released BEFORE the first screening of “The Eleventh Hour” on the BBC. HOWEVER, at midnight on April 16th, Western Australia time — then HAVE AT IT (for “The Eleventh Hour” only, of course!) — discuss the episode as you will. 🙂 If you’re not in Australia, then I recommend that you check The World Clock to see if the hour has arrived!
