'Doctor Who' Premiere: Poster Of The Doctor And New Companion (PHOTO)

We're less than a month away from the "Doctor Who" premiere, and BBC America is amping up the excitement with a brand new poster, which features The Doctor (Matt Smith) and his new companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Louise-Coleman), who made her debut in the Christmas special. (Check out the full poster below.)

"Doctor Who" premieres with the latter half of Season 7 on Sunday, March 30 (8 p.m. ET on BBC America) with "The Bells of St. John," the network has announced. Though "Doctor Who" fans have seen her before, the episode marks the official introduction of Clara, who will remain with the Doctor through the remaining eight episodes of Season 7.

"Set in London against the backdrop of new and old iconic landmarks, The Shard and Westminster Bridge, 'The Bells of St John' will also establish a new nemesis, the Spoonheads, who will battle the Doctor as he discovers something sinister is lurking in the Wi-Fi," according to BBC. "The Bells of St. John" was directed by Colm McCarthy, whose previous credits include "Hustle," "Spooks" and "Endeavour."

"It's the 50th year of 'Doctor Who' and look what's going on! We're up in the sky and under the sea! We're running round the rings of an alien world and then a haunted house," Steven Moffat, "Doctor Who's" executive producer and lead writer, said in a statement. "There's new Cybermen, new Ice Warriors and a never before attempted journey to the centre of the TARDIS. And in the finale, the Doctor's greatest secret will at last be revealed! If this wasn't already our most exciting year it would be anyway!"

The rest of Season 7 will see appearances from Celia Imrie, Richard E Grant, Warwick Davis, Jessica Raine, Dougray Scott, Tamzin Outhwaite, as well as mother and daughter Dame Diana Rigg and Rachael Stirling, who will be seen on screen together for the first time. And the remainder of the season will also include episodes written by Mark Gatiss ("Victory of the Daleks," "Night Terrors") and Neil Gaiman.

Take a look at the "Doctor Who" poster below and tune in for the "Doctor Who" premiere on Saturday, March 30 at 8:00pm ET on BBC America.
