Just when we thought the pickings were going to be rather slim thanks to so many of the summer shows ending and the holiday weekend, the premiere of Doctor Who pops up on the schedule and there are Daleks to be had.

We also get an hourlong Futurama finale along with Captain Picard's voice, and Monday brings in a slew of sci-fi stars, including Summer Glau on Alphas, Lindsay Wagner on Warehouse 13 and Mark Pellegrino on Grimm. Also this week, Face Off offers up a little pirates' booty, a deadly virus threatens the hospital on Saving Hope, Ryan examines his own mental state on Wilfred, and Bo accepts her destiny on Lost Girl.

Here's what we have to look forward to this week on sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal TV.
