'Pond Life': 'Doctor Who' Prequel Debuts (VIDEO)

Get ready for "Pond Life." BBC has released a new "Doctor Who" prequel exploring the lives of Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) in between their travels with the Doctor.

"It's kind of everything that happens in between time travel," Gillan explains in a video introduction. "I often wondered, 'What happens in between with the companions?' And this is the episode where we get to see a kind of couple try and have a domestic, married life."

New episodes of "Doctor Who" kick off on Sat., Sept. 1 at 9 a.m. on BBC America. For more details on Season 7 -- including some spoilers -- click over here.
