After keeping us in suspense for what seems like eons the BBC have finally revealed the the planned start time on BBC1 for the much anticipated ‘Doctor Who’ series 8 premiere episode ‘Deep Breath’.
Peter Capaldi‘s debut as the new Doctor will air at 7.50pm on Saturday, August 23.
Of course this will mean that the series will most likely collide with ITV1’s ‘X-Factor,’ which is something that lesser television shows would not survive. In recent years ‘Doctor Who’ has managed to hold its own against ITV’s juggernaut, which is something that other shows have always struggled to do.
80 minutes in duration, the Steven Moffat-penned adventure will conclude at approximately 9.10pm.
