This week on Doctor Who (BBC America, 8/7C), The Doctor and her friends find themselves on a hospital ship following the exploding of a sonic mine – but the hospital ship is no sanctuary.
BBC America has greenlit a ‘punk rock thriller’ series based on the City Watch subset of Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels.

The Doctor discovers that there are traces of Altron energy – the same energy that powers the TARDIS.
