Season 5

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 5 premiered on BBC Entertainment on Monday 15 November 2010, at 20h30. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 13 episodes in the fifth season, which was preceded by four consecutive specials.

Season 5

Matt Smith and Karen Gillan star as the Doctor and his companion as Doctor Who returns for a new season.

After his explosive regeneration, the Eleventh Doctor awakes to discover his TARDIS is about to crash. After falling from the sky, he pulls himself out of the wreckage to come face-to-face with young Amy Pond.

Still wearing the remains of the Tenth Doctor's suit, ripped and raggedy from the damage after the TARDIS control room exploded, the Doctor promises to take Amy to the stars.

But before they can begin their journey, they become embroiled in an alien plot that could destroy the Earth.

Later, the Doctor makes good his promise, and Amy boards the regenerated TARDIS, ready to take to the stars on a series of wild adventures that will change her life.

Amy and the Doctor explore time and space, visiting 16th century Venice, France during the 1890s and the United Kingdom in the far future, when the entire nation is floating in space.

As always, wherever the Doctor goes, his oldest enemies are never far behind – the Daleks are hatching a new master plan from the heart of war-torn London in the 1940s.

But they are not the only strange creatures the Doctor and Amy must face – there are also alien vampires, humanoid reptiles, old enemies such as the Weeping Angels, and a silent menace that follows Amy and the Doctor wherever they go.
