BBC America will bring back the cult hit "Doctor Who" on April 23, with the first part of a two-part debut that’s written by showrunner Steven Moffat, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
This season will have guest appearances by Mark Sheppard of "Supernatural" and "Battlestar Galactica" as well as Alex Kingston of "ER," the story notes.
The show will also be filmed in North America for the first time, with the Doctor and his companions going on an adventure that takes them through Utah to the Oval Office in 1969, the article notes.
"Doctor Who" last season brought Matt Smith into the lead role and Moffat took over the lead writing duties.
The show produced record ratings for BBC America last season, the story says.
