Despite the distinct lack of Doctor Who in 2016 beyond the Christmas Special, we’ve known that Peter Capaldi would take on a new companion to replace Jenna Coleman’s Clara. That new star will land as soon as this weekend, as Doctor Who prepares to announce the next companion entering the TARDIS.

Benedict Cumberbatch, you busy bee. Just days after hanging around the comic shops of NYC dressed as Doctor Strange (and presumably some filming as well), the Sherlock star is already back in action for Season 4, popped collar and all. Check out the first look at Sherlock Season 4, courtesy of writer Mark Gatiss!
The American port of The Office may have long-since passed us by (man, remember when Steve Carell did comedy?), but the UK version lives on in its leading man David Brent, once again brought to life by Ricky Gervais. See for yourself in the first Life on the Road trailer, returning the ex-Wernham-Hogg manager for a music career.
Orphan Black Season 4 is only one week in our future, but the first four minutes will take us straight to the past. Two familiar faces return as a new clone leads the charge in Orphan Black Season 4's first premiere clip!
Boy, that Benedict Cumberbatch is a busy bee. Just days after making the streets of NYC a little Strange-r, the Sherlock star is back abroad, kicking off production on the fourth season of the detective’s modern adventures. That said, why do we get the feeling Season 4 might be Sherlock and Watson’s final case?
Doctor Who himself may be down for the count until December or so, but the new YA spinoff Class may keep Whovians satiated for now. Meet the full cast of the new series, and get a first synopsis!
Orphan Black will undergo a major change in Season 4 by moving to Thursdays, but that’s not all. Producers confirm that a weekly After the Black talk show will follow each episode on BBC-A, including cast interviews, new footage and more Talking Dead-style coverage.
We’d heard some time ago that BBC-America had in mind to adapt Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy creator Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency with controversial writer Max Landis, and now Dirk Gently has a first major star. Lord of the Rings and Wilfred alum Elijah Wood joins the production in a major Dirk Gently role, but not the one you’d think.
The tenth season of Doctor Who will keep us all invested on the road to 2017, but fans will thankfully have more to enjoy beyond a Christmas special this year. After abandoning the Netflix ship, all nine seasons of the current Doctor Who will resurface on Amazon Prime to rewatch.
We won’t see Doctor Who again until the 2016 Christmas Special, even then without perhaps meeting the next companion to follow Jenna Coleman’s Clara, though he or she has apparently already been cast. Peter Capaldi says he’s already begun working with the franchise’s newest actor, perhaps precipitating a formal announcement soon.
