Time Lord countdown to Series 7 begins

The latest instalment of Doctor Who, which will feature Amy Pond's "heartbreaking" exit, is set to air in the UK on BBC1 on 1 September.

Series 7 will also debut the Time Lord's latest sidekick, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, who will make her first appearance during the Christmas special episode.

Before that, Who fans are in for a Dalek-busting, dinosaur-packing, teary-angels-in-New-York treat.

The first five episodes scheduled to air on the Beeb, according to fansite Doctorwhotv.co.uk, are entitled: Asylum of the Daleks, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, A Town Called Mercy, The Power of Three and The Angels Take Manhattan.

And here's the official listing of the first ep of Series 7, starring Matt Smith as the Doctor, in Radio Times magazine showing that it will air on Saturday, 1 September at 7.20pm on BBC1.

Time, then, to pull on your bowtie, grab a Pot Noodle and turn on the tellybox. ®
