Episode One - The Eleventh Hour (Reminder)

The night before the night has arrived. Tomorrow, at 6.20pm on BBC One, Doctor Who returns to our screens in the 63 minute mini-epic The Eleventh Hour.

Matt Smith is the Doctor, Karen Gillan is his companion Amy Pond. Arthur Darvill is her love interest Rory Williams and there are also scary kids, a freaky fella and his dog, a face tendril, the Atraxi, a duck pond, a closed post office, a crashed time machine, a garden swing etc.

This is the thirty first series of the show since it first began in November 1963. Or the fifth series since its hugely successful return in 2005. Or the first series of Matt Smith's era (and Steven Moffat's ego trip).

The series is made up of thirteen full length episodes, seeing the return of the Daleks, the Weeping Angels, the Cybermen and the 70s favourites the Silurians. Also (re)appearing is could-she-be-the-Doctor's-wife River Song played by Alex Kingston. Guest stars this series include Ian McNiece, Sophie Okonedo, James Corden, Bill Nighy and Karen Gillan's baby cousin, Caitlin Blackwood, as a young Amelia Pond!

As many of you know already I will be reviewing each episode of this run. The reviews should hit this site within 24 hours of transmission. They will contain spoilers for that week's episode, so watch it first, then come here for the review. THEN tell all your friends how great the review was and send them links so they can come here too! I'll also be offering links to the episode being reviewed on BBC iPlayer. I hope you'll all join me on what promises to be a fun, honest and exciting journey through the world of Doctor Who! It's back ladies and gents. It's bloody back!
