picTonight is the big night that sees the return of Doctor Who with episode 8, "Let's Kill Hitler."

However, that is not all that audiences will see - at least in the U.S., as a special Doctor Who motion comic will debut sometime during one of the breaks.


"The minute long motion comic features a motorcycle chase scene with Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill). Apparently, Steven Moffat and the episode’s director Richard Senior, would have loved to have included a chase sequence during the episode of "Let’s Kill Hitler," but they didn’t have the budget to shoot the additional scenes."

U.K. audiences will get a chance to view the motion comic as it will appear as a bonus feature on the upcoming season's DVD.

However, as BritScene notes, it will most likely appear on YouTube soon enough!

Doctor Who returns Saturday August 27th, 2011 at 9pm ET on BBCA.
