The BBC has confirmed that Doctor Who will return to BBC One at 7.10pm on Saturday 27th August.
The start time is one of the latest for the programme since it returned in 2005, and brings the series into the heart of prime time Saturday night viewing.
On BBC One Doctor Who will follow All New Celebrity Total Wipeout, a star-studded edition of the obstacle-course game show, and will be followed by The National Lottery: Secret Fortune.
ITV 1 will be showing All Star family Fortunes during Doctor Who, featuring Former Birds of a Feather actress Pauline Quirke and broadcaster Jo Whiley. Their big hitter The X Factor begins a new series at 8pm, just as Doctor Who finishes, and BBC planners will be hoping that a substantial number of X Factor fans will turn to The Doctor as the build up to the talent show.
BBC Two will offer The Normans as an alternative to Doctor Who with Professor Robert Bartlett travelling from Britain to Jerusalem. Those inspired to find out more about Hitler following his encounter with The Doctor can watch Adolf Hitler v Hans Litten: To Stop a Tyrant, on the channel from 8pm.
Channel 4 offers Athletics in the form of day one of the IAAF World Championships while Five has Law & Order.
Doctor Who returns to North America the same evening, showing on BBC America at 9ET and on SPACE at 8ET. Australia sees the episode a week later on 3rd September at 7.30pm on ABC1.
