'Doctor Who' Season 10 Premiere The Pilot how to watch online BBC

Fans have been waiting since December 2015 to see new episodes of “Doctor Who,” and the beloved British sci-fi institution finally returns this weekend. “Doctor Who” Season 10 debuts April 15 on BBC America, at 9 p.m. EST. Those tuning in from the U.K. can catch the first episode, the ‘The Pilot’ at 7:20 p.m. GMT on BBC One.

New episodes will be available the following day at the BBC America official site and on the BBC America app. In either case, you’ll need to log in with a cable or satellite subscription.

Episodes of “Doctor Who” will also be available to purchase the day after they premiere on Amazon, the Apple iTunes Store and the Google Play Store. Episodes from previous seasons have sold for $2.99 (HD) or $1.99 (SD), with discounts for full-season purchases.

The Season 10 premiere of “Doctor Who” will also be shown for a limited time in in cinemas on April 17 and 19, following the episode’s broadcast debut. Click here to go to the Fathom Events page to find a screening in your area. The event will take place in over 550 theaters nationwide.

Season 10 marks the final episodes helmed by showrunner Steven Moffat and featuring Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor. Capaldi recently told The Sydney Morning Herald he’d already filmed his character’s death: "It was a strange day. It was explosive. He goes out a fighter."

At New York Comic Con back in October, Executive Producer Brian Minchin repeatedly stated the show’s tenth season would be all about new beginnings. He explained, “You’re getting to see the Doctor through a very different pair of eyes. We went to particular pains to make sure the first episode is really an ‘Episode 1,’ it can be the first episode you’ve ever seen. It explains the entire mythos of “Doctor Who” -- in the two minutes it takes -- and you can start there.”
