Yesterday, courtesy of BBC America, New Yorker's got their first look at the new, strikingly youthful Doctor Who (Matt Smith) and his feisty new Scottish companion Amy Pond (Karen Gillan).

In a special screening in advance of Saturday's broadcast (on BBC America) hundreds of die-hard American Who fans were lucky enough to catch the Doctor's latest adventure before the rest of the nation.

'Doctor Who: The Eleventh Hour' broadcasts on BBC America on Saturday April 17 at 9pm Eastern.
