Great news, Whovians! TVLine.com reported earlier this week that the last eight episodes of “Doctor Who” will begin airing on Saturday, March 30, as part of BBC America’s “Supernatural Saturday” block of programming. The second-half of season seven will air along with the new sci-fi series “Orphan Black” and new episodes of “The Nerdist.”
“Doctor Who” fans last saw the Doctor a month ago, when the highly-anticipated Christmas special “The Snowmen” aired. During the episode, the Doctor’s new companion Clara Oswin was introduced, and as was expected, there was plenty of mystery surrounding her appearance. Only after Clara died (again) did the Doctor realize that Clara was the same person as Oswin, the space-explorer-turned-Dalek from the season premiere “Asylum of the Daleks.” As the teaser for the second-half of the season reveals, Clara/Oswin is alive in the present day, and the Doctor is determined to find out how a person who has died before can live again.
“Doctor Who” airs in the United States on BBC America.
