Doctor Who season six airing on BBC America the same day as in the UK?S

Good news! Not only did Doctor Who film in the United States for the first time this year, but we're also getting the episodes the same day in the U.S. as in the U.K.

At least, Doctor Who Magazine reports that series six will launch in Britain over Easter weekend (April 23). And BBC America just announced their own premiere date — which as you can see from the new poster above, is also April 23. (You can download a much bigger version of the poster here.)

So rejoice, Americans! No more lag time before we get to see our favorite Time Lord in action. [EW]
