UPDATED: The Doctor Who Season 7 Premiere Date Has Been Revealed?


The moment you’ve all been waiting for…the Doctor Who Season 7 premiere date has been revealed…in video form? Watch now! 

That’s right, sooner than expected! In just two weeks, on September 8th, you’ll be watching the premiere episode “Asylum of the Daleks” on BBC America. Presumably, the UK and the US will be getting it on the same day as that’s been the trend as of late.

How excited are you?

UPDATE: Thanks to a few commenters and tipsters we now know this date may be questionable. According to DoctorWhoNews.net, “early morning viewers were treated to a trailer on BBC America earlier this week which specifically mentioned an on air date of the 8th September - however, the channel has now reverted to trailers saying the series is coming soon. It is unsure whether the trailer was a mistake or if BBC America jumped the gun on an announcement.” They also note BBC America has devoted an entire day of programmed to Doctor Who on September 1. Stay tuned…

UPDATE #2: September 1st it is!

    Sooner than expected? Weren’t we expecting Sept. 1, or is that just the UK/Australia date?

    All I’d been hearing was “in the Fall” so it’s sooner than I thought at least. :)

     Sept. 1 is UK, but BBCAmerica had been airing same day. And apparently the ad has been pulled – either wrong, or too soon.

    Holy crap!  Does noone double check other sources?   BBC A pulled that ad and back tracked stating everyone would find out later this week. http://wegotthiscovered.com/news/doctor-who-series-seven-premiere-date-confirmed/

    Which is of course, the weekend of the Balimore Comic Con, which will likely result in a number of calls to hotels, asking if they have BBC America on their televisions.

    As it turns out, the trailer has been pulled. BBC America has now gone back to trailers saying the series is coming soon. It is
    unsure whether the trailer was a mistake or if BBCA jumped the
    gun on an announcement.

    Wait. So why did my question get flagged?

  • Lady Rainicorn

    Please, oh please let it not be the 8th. That’s the day I move into my dorm at uni and I’d really like my new flatmates to know me for more than a couple of hours before they have to hear me squealing about Daleks.

    Definitely not sooner, between the UK premiere on Sept 1, the NYC theatre premiere on 8/25 – I figured Sept 1  for the US too.

    Especially since the 6th season did same day airings.

    I expect ratings to dip, due to internet downloading.

    Since the September 1st falls under the Labor Day weekend, BBCAM might not want to ‘simulcast’ with BBC as this did in the past. That being said, I bet the U.S. is going to get doubled up on 09/08 — the 09/01 episode to play catch up and then ‘simulcast’ the 09/08 BBC episode.

     After further thought, I am guessing that there will be a week in September where they can’t air an episode of Doctor Who (like in 2007 and 08 for the Eurovision contest) so they are delaying the US airings so that they both end on the same date.  At least that is what I am hoping

    BBC America NEVER shows a new ep of Doctor Who on a holiday weekend. I guess they’re afraid of losing ratings on a weekend when folks might have something else going on.  So 9/1 seems less likely, given past behavior…

    For what it’s worth, Blogtor Who just posted a 9/1 U.K. premiere date, citing Radio Times.

  • Kelly Hutchinson

    Oh man I am so super tired that my mind could not handle automatically flipping dates – so until I read your comment I was in a panic that it would not air until the 9th of January

    I just thought you should know how very happy getting to your comment made me (even if it is at the expense of me feeling very stupid)

  • Fredrik Coulter

    I just received a text from BBC America with a September 1 start date.

  • Rob Gale

    http://www.bbcamerica.com/ now says Sept 1 on front page roll

    It’s Sept 1st on SPACE in Canada as well.

    So now US and UK dates are the same? I usually DL my BBC and ITV stuff because they are usually a season to a year ahead of us. I don’t know if I am upset or happy. But it explains why I couldn’t find season 7 and for Dr.Who I guess I am willing to sit through American Commercials!
