BBC America has announced that it will preem the latest incarnation of venerable sci-fi franchise "Doctor Who" on April 17, 2010.

New version of the net’s highest-rated show will star Matt Smith as the Doctor (taking over from thesp David Tennant) and will be headed by lead writer Steven Moffat, who wrote for the the show under Russell T. Davies when Davies revived it in 2005. Moffat, whose writing credits include Steven Spielberg’s upcoming "Tintin" film, has enlisted multihyphenate Neil Gaiman, "Pirate Radio" helmer Richard Curtis, and "Torchwood" writers Chris Chibnall and Toby Whitehouse to pen eps of the upcoming series, though Gaiman’s contribution is not scheduled to air until the 2011 season.

 

I’m still not sold on the idea of such a young Doctor… but the fan in me can’t wait!  Actually… now that I think about it, I guess I’m just hoping that the new ginger-haired beauty on the show doesn’t come off as helpless.  I’d really like her to be someone who can kick the Doctor around when he’s getting out of line.
