The time is almost upon us...

The new Doctor is in, beginning April 17 on BBC America.

In the first episode, ‘The Eleventh Hour,’ new star Matt Smith begins his stint as the Time Lord with quite the challenge -- his sonic screwdriver is scrap metal, the TARDIS is wrecked and The Doctor has only 20 minutes to save planet Earth. Luckily, the mysterious Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) is on the scene as well.

Even better, if you’re going to WonderCon in San Francisco on April 3 or to C2E2 Chicago on April 16 you can see special screenings of the season premiere.
