Season 4

Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC which depicts the adventures of a mysterious time-traveller known as "the Doctor" who travels in his time ship, the TARDIS, which appears from the exterior to be a blue police phone box.

With his companions, he explores time and space, solving problems and righting wrongs.

The programme originally ran from 1963-1989. A television film was made in 1996 as a backdoor pilot for a new series (which never entered production), and the programme was successfully relaunched in 2005, produced in-house by BBC Wales.

Doctor Who premiered in South Africa on BBC Prime (which became BBC Entertainment in September 2008) on Saturday 1 September 2007, at 19h00. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 4 premiered on BBC Entertainment on Sunday 11 April 2010, at 18h25. New episodes aired weekly. There are 13 episodes in the fourth season, which was preceded by the Christmas special Voyage of the Damned the week before.

Season 4

Catherine Tate is the Doctor's new companion, returning to her role as Donna who featured in the Christmas special The Runaway Bride.

Donna mysteriously vanished as she prepared to marry her boyfriend in a glittering ceremony on Christmas Eve. She reappeared, much to her astonishment, in the Tardis with the Doctor.

As the Tardis raced to the church, it soon became apparent that Donna was the key to an ancient alien plan to destroy the Earth.

The episode ended with The Doctor inviting Donna to travel with him – an invitation which, at the time, was declined...

The first episode of the new season witnesses Donna determined to find The Doctor again – even if it means braving the villainous Miss Foster, an enigmatic and powerful businesswoman, and her hordes of sinister Adipose.

But when the alien threat escalates out of control, can Donna find her Time Lord, before the march of the Adipose begins?

Donna and The Doctor – David Tennant – will also be travelling through time for an encounter with the legendary murder mystery novelist, Agatha Christie.

Agatha Christie will be played by Jekyll star Fenella Woolgar and The Good Life actress Felicity Kendal will star as Lady Clemency Eddison.

The couple are destined to experience a series of wonderful adventures throughout the new season including meeting one of Doctor Who's most popular aliens, The Ood, in a brand new episode, Planet Of The Ood.

Blackadder and Notting Hill actor Tim McInnerny will also guest star later in the series.

Freema Agyeman, who played Martha Jones, The Doctor's companion throughout the third season, returns to the show to join The Doctor and Donna mid-season.
