Neil Gaiman's eagerly anticipated episode of Doctor Who is finally coming up this Saturday, and we've got a few cool promo pics to throw your way.

After last week's somewhat disappointing episode, "The Curse of the Black Spot," hopes are going to be riding very high for Gaiman's first Doctor Who outing.

"The Doctor's Wife" is the episode Who and Gaiman fans (and probably the whole of geekdom as well) have been waiting for ever since it was announced that the popular fantasy writer was writing an episode of the BBC's sci-fi series—season premiere nonwithstanding.

As a reminder, here's the episode synopsis that was included in the press release a few weeks back:

The Doctor receives a distress signal from an old friend. Could there really be another living Time Lord out there? Hopes raised, he follows the signal to a junkyard planet sitting upon a mysterious asteroid in a Bubble universe, populated by a very strange family, as the time-travelling drama continues.

The Doctor, Amy and Rory are given the warmest of welcomes by Auntie, Uncle and Nephew. But the beautiful and insane Idris greets them in a more unusual fashion - what is she trying to tell the Doctor? As the Doctor investigates, he unwittingly puts his friends in the gravest danger.

Are you guys looking forward to it?
