A Reason To Keep Your TV?

dr whomg-mg---spring-tv-preview---11_1520233252The British sci-fi drama “Doctor Who,” which has a much bigger audience, proportionately, in the U.K. than over here, returns for a fifth season that’s all about new beginnings. Matt Smith (pictured) takes over for David Tennant as the Doctor, a 900-year-old time-traveler from a destroyed civilization who travels through time and space in a little blue box that resembles a 1950s British police call-box. (Which, as the joke goes, is bigger on the inside.) Joining him on the adventure of many lifetimes is Karen Gillan as Amy Pond, the Doctor’s latest companion. Doctor Who gets a new head writer/executive producer as well in the prolific Steven Moffat, who had previously written some of the Doctor’s most dazzling episodes. (Launches April 17 at 9 p.m.)
