BBC America just announced they’ll be hosting the premiere screening of Doctor Who‘s Series 7 opener, “Asylum of the Daleks” Saturday, August 25th in New York City. But…but…butbutbutbut – WHAT IF YOU DON’T LIVE IN OR NEAR MANHATTAN, BBC AMERICA?!? When do the rest of us get to see it? Believe it or not there’ still no official air date for new Doctor Who, because the universe hates us, but I’m gonna bet it’ll be September 1st if they’re holding the premiere screening on the 25th. We’ll update when we finally get official word on this.
Anyway, for those who’d like a chance to see “Asylum of the Daleks” first and getting to NYC on 25th isn’t a hassle, here’s what you need to know:

UPDATED! Hypable is reporting that the BBC have confirmed the Series 7 premiere of Doctor Who for Septemeber 1st. I’ll now just call it saying Doctor Who will return to TV screens in the U.S. on the same day at 9pm EST. And if you’re doubting me, just take a glance at this HUGE, hour long whole in BBC America’s programming schedule for that evening. Just after a marathon of Series 6, how convenient.
