BBC Schedules ‘Doctor Who’ Season Four
The BBC has confirmed that the fourth season of Doctor Who will premiere sometime during the week beginning April 5 on BBC One.
Season Four pairs David Tennant as the Doctor with a new companion in Catherine Tate, who reprises her role as "Runaway Bride" Donna Noble.
From the BBC synopsis of the season premiere, titled "Partners in Crime":
Donna Noble is determined to find the Doctor again – even if it means braving the villainous Miss Foster and her hordes of sinister Adipose, as Russell T Davies’s Bafta Award-winning time-travelling drama returns for a fourth series. But when the alien threat escalates out of control, can Donna find her Time Lord before the march of the Adipose begins?
Although the actual date/time of the premiere has not been announced, it’s widely speculated that the premiere will air on BBC One around 7 PM on Saturday, April 5.
Mere days after the last episode of Torchwood. I'm surprised they didn't wait a bit, to stretch things out a bit.Looking forward to it for sure.
I've read that the Sci Fi channel will air the premiere roughly two to three weeks later. Much like BBC America and Torchwood. Personally, I'm glad that the lag won't be as long.
