WATCH: ‘Doctor Who’ Returns with Comic Relief Mini-Episode

Oh, Doctor Who, you’ve been away too long. Steven Moffat and company have produced a hilarious two-part mini-episode for Britain’s Comic Relief charity telethon, which aired tonight (March 18) on the BBC in the UK. I won’t spoil it for you, but let’s just say that the clips rise to the comedic heights that we expect from Doctor Who. It’s sure to satisfy your Doctor/Amy/Rory cravings until the April 23 premiere of the new season on BBC America.

And I totally expect the term “wibbly lever” to have entered the lexicon by, say, tomorrow morning.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
