'Doctor Who' to return to BBC America on September 1

Five-episode run to say goodbye to Amy Pond and Rory

"Doctor Who" will return to BBC America on Saturday, September 1 at 9 p.m.

The seventh season of the rebooted "Doctor Who" will be premiering on the same day in Great Britain. Even though this is a holiday weekend in America, BBC America executives apparently felt (rightly so) that they were better off sticking day-and-date with the UK rather than inviting American viewers to illegally download the episodes.

The seventh season will be split into a few chunks, and the first batch will be five episodes that will send off Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill as the Doctor's most recent companions, Amy Pond and Rory Williams. It's unclear whether the new companion, played by Jenna Louise Coleman, will be introduced in these episodes or further down the line.

If you want a taste of what's to come in the new season, here's a spoiler-y quote from showrunner Steven Moffat:

Series premiere review: 'Copper' - 'Surviving Death'

What did everybody think of the BBC America period cop drama?

I posted my review of "Copper" on Thursday, and an interview with co-creator Tom Fontana yesterday. Now it's your turn. What did everybody think of Fontana, Will Rokos and Barry Levinson's 1864 New York cop show? Did you like star Tom Weston-Jones? Were you drawn to any characters in particular? How did you feel the show did at recreating the time period on a Toronto soundstage? And will you keep watching? 

Because I feel like the show isn't quite there yet, and also because it happens to be airing (for the next few weeks, anyway) opposite both "Breaking Bad" and "The Newsroom," I don't expect I'll be doing weekly reviews, but I'll try to check back in later in the season to offer some thoughts on how (or if) the show is evolving.
