You read right — Doctor Who is indeed coming to Disney XD.
Starting on Saturday, May 9th, the network will feature a preview airing of the season two, episode one “New Earth”, following the premiere of Fantastic Four.
In “New Earth,” the Doctor (David Tennant) and Rose (Billie Piper) board the TARDIS for new adventures in time and space. But when they visit mankind’s new home, far in the future, they find gruesome secrets hidden inside a luxury hospital. And an enemy thought long since dead, the paper-thin Cassandra, is out for revenge.
Disney XD will then continue to air the rest of the season starting on Saturday, June 13th. The special week-long programming event will give fans eight episodes through to Saturday, June 20th.
“It has been a pleasure working with BBC and we are thrilled that their hallmark drama series ‘Doctor Who’ is joining the Disney XD programming line-up. This iconic series features the high-quality, high-stakes action and adventure storytelling that our viewers love. The show headlines one of the most charismatic lead characters in television in the form of the Doctor and showcases a compelling rogues’ gallery of villains from around the universe,” Marc Buhaj, Senior Vice President, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD said.
