April showers bring May flowers, and this month’s British TV program premieres bring hours of viewing enjoyment with the return of midwives, the arrival of alien-battling teens, and more to telly.
Whether the weather outside is frightful or fantastic, chillax in front of your favorite telly screen with some terrific British TV this month, including the premieres of new and returning series and holiday specials.
BBC One has announced that Pearl Mackie will play Bill, the new companion to Peter Capaldi’s Time Lord in Doctor Who.
Starting today, Whovians can get their best “Fantastic!” or “Allons-y!” or “Geronimo!” on at Amazon Prime, the new and exclusive SVoD home of the hit sci-fi series in the US.
Remember all the hullabaloo a while back about Netflix removing Doctor Who from its streaming selections? Well, the reprieve is soon over.
The BBC has confirmed that Steven Moffat is stepping down as the lead writer and executive producer of Doctor Who, and that Chris Chibnall will take over the reins as showrunner for the hit sci-fi series.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, as holiday specials, dramas, a mockumentary and rockumentary, a music-filled movie, and a proper musical, premiere on US channels and streaming services this month.
Is Steven Moffat Father Christmas? Yes for this Whovian, because Alex Kingston returns to Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas special, “The Husbands of River Song.”
