Doctor Who fans like me will be watching the first new episode of Doctor Who tonight, on BBC America at 8pm EST, since last year’s Christmas Special. This is technically the 6th episode of season 7, but it is the first episode of The Doctor with his new companion, Clara, so it almost feels like a new season.
The episode is entitled The Bells of Saint John. It is described as: The Doctor’s search for Clara Oswald brings him to modern day London, where Wi-Fi is everywhere. Humanity lives in a Wi-Fi soup, but something dangerous is lurking in the signals, picking off minds and imprisoning them. As Clara becomes the target of this insidious menace, the Doctor races to save her and the world from an ancient enemy.
