Doctor Who star Matt Smith has confirmed that the show will return next month, and also expressed interest in appearing on cult comedy Community!

Speaking at the TV Guide Magazine Fan Favourites’ panel of San Diego Comic-Con, the actor told fans that series 7 opener “Asylum of the Daleks” will air next month. The following four episodes will presumably follow weekly, leading up to the Pond’s farewell encounter with The Weeping Angels.

Smith also said that he had recently spoken to one of the writers of Community, and expressed interest in making an appearance in the programme. He follows Karen Gillan, who said she would like to make an Amy Pond cameo in the “Inspector Spacetime” portion of the show.

Are you excited to know you only have a month to wait for series 7? Would you like to see Smith and Gillan reunite for a Community cameo?

For complete coverage of Matt, Karen, Arthur and Steven Moffat at the Doctor Who Comic-Con panel as it happens, check out our live blog!

    Question: Does Doctor Who air on BBCA? I just started watching this summer. Thanks!

    • https://twitter.com/#!/HarriFSargeant Harri Sargeant

      Yes it does! Times have varied series to series, but last year it was on the same night as it aired in the UK.

      • Kyle Ellison

        Awesome! Hopefully it will air the same date as the UK. Thanks again!

        • https://twitter.com/#!/HarriFSargeant Harri Sargeant

          I hope it does as well! Me and the WhoHype girls are counting on it, or else our review of each episode will just be a whole lot of me. No worries!

    Are we absolutely sure that this is the start of the series and not just the preview of Asylum of the Daleks that was announced a few weeks ago?

    • https://twitter.com/#!/HarriFSargeant Harri Sargeant

      Definitely the series.

    YAY! So happy about Doctor Who returning and having possible cameos in Community.
    It will give me something to look forward to on Community now that it
    is Harmon-less.

    Also I got a literal chill when I read “Pond’s farwell encounter with the Weeping Angels” EEK

  • Marly

    When they say “a month” it just makes it seem so much closer. I can’t believe it’s almost August! :)))

  • Energizerbunny1218

    Yes omg that sounds amazing I love that show!

  • http://www.hypable.com/ Louie Schuth

    So I have to get through series 2-6 by August? Challenge accepted.

    • http://twitter.com/MowTheFrontLawn Juan Pedia

      You’ll have until late August.  Should be plenty of time.  Enjoy Series 2-6!

  • Guest

    Uh the answer to both those questions is a resounding “FUCK YES.”

    Woo so excited. No actual date announced but if we assume the BBC won’t show it in  between all the Olympics coverage then it’ll be some time after the 12th august. Maybe the 18th?

    • https://twitter.com/#!/HarriFSargeant Harri Sargeant

      The 25th is our best guess. It’s being previewed at a festival the day before, so it won’t be before then. It’s the only Saturday in August post-screening, and it’s also a bank holiday in the UK which is generally a series première hotspot.  

  • Delena

    YESSSSS. So excited. I CAN’T WAIT. Ahhh, this is gonna be so sad and awesome and fantastic. 

  • Ellie

    these two shows combined would literally make my life

    If they brought back Ian Duncan (Jeff’s British psych prof friend from the first two seasons), they could figure out something there. Matt’s American accent is terrible–he sounds like a gangster, Lol.
