We’re celebrating Doctor Who Week even behind-the-scenes at BBC America. Take a look at what some of our talented colleagues came up with for our Doctor Who Bake-Off.
If you saw this week’s Doctor Who adventure The Rings of Akhaten, you may find yourself unaccountably pining for a scone in the Lake District. You may not even be sure where the Lake District is, or if it is actually a real place (it is), but it won’t stop the smacking of chops and gnawing in the belly.
Admittedly, the Doctor’s most very favorite scones are not only in the Lake District but the Lake District of the roaring ’20s, but, in the absence of TARDIS’s of our very own, here are five highly-ranked (by Tripadvisor) tea shops in the area, as of right now…

Walkers and Tayto, roast chicken and ‘Cheese & Onion’ crisps, Bounty bars that look the same but taste different. Familiarize yourself for your next trip across the pond.
Chef Race: U.K. vs U.S. - BBC AMERICA’s all-new original series from Executive Producer Jamie Oliver
From executive producer Jamie Oliver, Chef Race: U.K. vs. U.S. pits 16 chefs, eight Brits versus eight Americans, against each other as they race across the country in the hopes of winning a grand prize of $100,000 dollars. Michelin-starred London restaurateur, Richard Corrigan (Masterchef), serves as a mentor and judge and Claire Robinson (5 Ingredient Fix) hosts the new BBC AMERICA original series.
The race begins on the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, where Team U.K. and Team U.S. are stripped of their cash and credit cards and challenged to cook to survive, cook to prosper and cook to win. In the 10 one-hour episodes, the teams battle coast to coast from Los Angeles to New York City, with the chefs living off their culinary skills and business savvy to survive and make it to their next destination. In the beginning, they will work as teams and cook to turn a profit. The team with the biggest profit moves on and the losing team faces elimination, but in the end, there will only be one winner. Chef Race: U.K. vs. U.S. premieres with two back-to-back episodes on Tuesday October 2, 9:00pm ET and 10:00pm ET on BBC AMERICA.
BBC AMERICA will present a preview of episode one on Saturday, September 29, 10:00pm ET following the mid-season finale of Doctor Who.
The first episode has Jamie making Piri Piri Chicken, dressed potatoes, rocket salad and Portuguese Tarts. Get the recipe here.
Now we’ll finally know what to fix for dinner: Jamie Oliver’s real-time cooking show joins BBC AMERICA’s daytime lineup starting May 1 at 1pm ET. The series has Jamie cooking up substantial mains, delicious sides and salads, gorgeous puddings and refreshing drinks – adding his own unique twist to each element.
Jamie explains: “If you want really great food, and fast, then do EXACTLY what I say. The years of me making pleasant suggestions are gone; I am going to tell you what to do, what to buy, when to turn your oven on and how to make these dishes. If you listen, you’ll end up with a feast of beautiful things on your table in less than half an hour. This is about making people brilliant, on a daily basis.”
Update: New updated title for the series: Jamie’s Meals in Minutes
