Neil Gaiman is a Whovian at heart, and it's never more clear than in the episodes he writes for Doctor Who.
Following the success of "The Doctor's Wife" two years ago, Gaiman returns with "Nightmare in Silver," which airs Saturday at 8/7c on BBC America. Showrunner Steven Moffat was able to lure back the award-winning writer with one succinct request: Make the Cybermen scary again.

Will the Crimson Horror be the Doctor's undoing?
On Saturday's all-new Doctor Who (8/7c, BBC America), the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) take another jaunt into England's past only to be faced with the mystery of strange, red corpses washing up in the Yorkshire river...
BBC America has picked up Orphan Black for a second season, the network announced Thursday. The thriller series will return with 10 episodes in 2014.
The show stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah, a woman who adopts the identity of a woman whom she witnesses committing suicide, and then learns that they are actually clones of each other.
"It's bigger on the inside."
On Saturday's Doctor Who (8/7c, BBC America), viewers will get to see just how accurate that statement is when the Doctor (Matt Smith) travels to the center of the TARDIS to find his companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), who is lost inside the time-traveling spacecraft. Perhaps her predicament is the result of that combative relationship she has with the TARDIS?

After Doctor Who's last Cold War adventure, the Doctor and his companion are traveling back a decade.
On Saturday's episode, "Hide" (airing 8/7c on BBC America), the time-hopping duo go back to the 1970s to visit a haunted house. Jenna-Louise Coleman, who plays companion Clara, tells TVGuide.com, "It's very eerie and haunted, and I think the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara arrive kind of wanting to play a bit. But actually in Doctor Who-style, it's more than what we think."
Talk about exhausting!
That's how Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany must feel after a day on set. See, in BBC America's twisty new sci-fi series (airing Saturdays at 9/8c), Maslany plays Sarah Manning, a streetwise hustler who assumes the identity of a dead stranger who looks similar to her. It turns out, however, that her doppelganger is actually her clone, and there are more of them, which means Maslany is sometimes tasked to take on at least three roles in one scene at any given time.

How does Maslany pull off playing...
Now that Clara has officially debuted as Doctor Who's new companion, let's get down to solving the mystery of this "impossible girl."
On Saturday's Doctor Who (8/7c, BBC America), present-day Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) will have her first outer space adventure in "The Rings of Akhaten." Coleman sat down with TVGuide.com to give the scoop on what it takes to play the Doctor's (Matt Smith) new companion, Clara's rivalry with the TARDIS and the highly anticipated 50th anniversary special:

The Doctor's search for his elusive (and twice-dead) companion Clara has come to an end.
On Saturday, Doctor Who returns at 8/7c on BBC America for the first episode with Clara Oswin Oswald (Jenna-Louise Coleman) in her official capacity as companion to the Doctor (Matt Smith). We previously met her as the futuristic hacker Oswin ("Asylum of the Daleks") and Victorian governess Clara ("The Snowmen"), but those run-ins merely set up the mystery of the woman who was destined to travel with the Time Lord. Now he's found her in contemporary London.

Despite the show's name, don't expect to see Jack the Ripper cases play a big part on Ripper Street.
That's because the new BBC America crime drama, which kicks off Saturday at 9/8c, takes place in 1889, a good six months after the last murder was attributed to the notorious serial killer. "The whole idea for us setting out on this journey was to really try and actually discard Jack the Ripper, at least in terms of wondering after who he was and trying to catch him..."
