The Doctor is in Astoria.

On Monday night, the Museum of the Moving Image, located at 36-01 35th Ave., will host an exclusive screening and live event for the premiere of “Doctor Who.”

The event, which is presented in collaboration with BBC America, will feature a screening of the new episode “Sleep No More,” followed by a discussion with actor/writer Mark Gatiss and Dave Itzkoff of The New York Times.

Gatiss — whose career includes being a writer, producer, critically acclaimed actor and author — is one of only a few writers who have written for all four Doctors in the revival of “Doctor Who.” He is also the co-creator and executive producer of BBC’s series “Sherlock.”

He appears on the show as Sherlock’s brother Mycroft and recently took the role of Tycho Nestoria on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

The new season of “Doctor Who” will follow the Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, and Clara, played by Jenna Coleman, embarking on “reckless adventures in space and time,” according to a description on the museum’s website.

Monday night’s event is set for 7 p.m. and tickets are $30. For more information, click here.
