<i>Doctor Who</i> Returns March 30

The seventh season of Doctor Who will return Saturday, March 30 with eight new episodes, BBC and BBC America have announced.

They'll include installments written by Steven Moffat, Neil Cross, Stephen Thompson, Mark Gatiss and, as we noted in November, Neil Gaiman, who pits the Time Lord against his iconic enemies the Cybermen. Gaiman's previous episode, "The Doctor's Wife," won a Hugo Award, as well as the hearts of many Whovians.

Presumably the second half of the season will also clue us in to the mystery of the Doctor's new companion Clara Oswin Oswald (played by Jenna-Louise Coleman).

Starring Matt Smith once again as the Eleventh Doctor, the series returns Saturday, March 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America.
