Doctor Who Prequel ‘Pond Life’
Leads Viewers Into Season 7
BBC and BBC America have debuted the first two installments of “Pond Life,” a serialized prequel that leads into Saturday’s Season 7 premiere of Doctor Who. You can watch them below.
Written by Chris Chibnall (“42,” “The Hungry Earth”/”Cold Blood”) and directed by Saul Metzstein (“Dinosaurs on a Spaceship”/”A Town Called Mercy”), the mini-adventure picks up the lives of the Ponds (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill) at home, where their routine is regularly interrupted by the comings and goings of the Doctor (Matt Smith).
‘It opens with the Ponds at home and gives us an insight in to just what happens when the Doctor drops in and out of their lives,” Chibnall said.
A new mini-episode arrives each day through Friday, ending in a cliffhanger that leads right into the season premiere “Asylum of the Daleks.” The new season of Doctor Who debuts Saturday, Sept. 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America.
