Good news Whovians! Doctor Who returns March 30th with what is being called a “modern day urban thriller.” Here’s what the BBC had to say about it:

Written by Steven Moffat, ‘The Bells of St John’ will mark the official introduction of the Doctor’s newest companion, Clara Oswald, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman.  Having already made two appearances last year, the opening episode will be the first time fans get to see the Clara that will accompany the Doctor across the series’ eight adventures.

Set in London against the backdrop of new and old iconic landmarks, The Shard and Westminster Bridge, ‘The Bells of St John’ will also establish a new nemesis, the Spoonheads, who will battle the Doctor as he discovers something sinister is lurking in the Wi-Fi.

While that certainly sounds unique, wait till you see what showrunner Steven Moffat has to say about the season:

“It’s the 50th year of Doctor Who and look what’s going on! We’re up in the sky and under the sea! We’re running round the rings of an alien world and then a haunted house. There’s new Cybermen, new Ice Warriors and a never before attempted journey to the centre of the TARDIS. And in the finale, the Doctor’s greatest secret will at last be revealed!  If this wasn’t already our most exciting year it would be anyway!”

Such enthusiasm! Whovians, what are you most looking forward to with this season of Doctor Who?

    Honestly as soon as I saw that promotional image my only reaction was “ugh.” It just screams of the Doctor running around having action and coming up with clever fixes without having any real story or depth to it, and Clara being all witty and sassy because that’s the only way Moffat knows how to write females and gahhhh.

    And yeah, spoonheads, what? And ‘something sinister lurking in the wi-fi’ basically sounds like “The Idiot’s Lantern” all over again? Which, I mean, I love that episode, but that doesn’t mean they need to make it again.

    On the bright side, from the wording they used about Clara it sounds like she’s going to stay alive for the rest of the season, which is good! For a while there I was concerned they were going to kill her off every week and that would get old FAST.

    I don’t know, hopefully it will exceed my expectations!
