Matt Smith Comes to America
BBC America announces the U.S. premiere of Doctor Who featuring Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor.
On the heels of returning from San Diego Comic Con where BBC America saw a strong reception to its Doctor Who programming and panels (including appearing in person, David Tennant, John Barrowman, and Russell T Davies), and with the strong ratings that the recent airing of Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead brought in, BBC America has announced the acquisition of 13 episodes of the new upcoming Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor series. The new series shot in HD will be shown on BBC America shortly after the UK in the second quarter of 2010.
Steven Moffat is the lead writer and executive producer with Piers Wenger and Beth Willis.
