You’re going to see a whole lot of Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who Season 10 kicks off the 12th Doctor’s final run, but you may see more of Pearl Mackie’s new companion Bill, judging by the latest trailer. Get the full picture of Season 10 (including Missy’s return) with some new Doctor Who, and Class to boot.
Updates in the design of Doctor Who are built into its central character, so it isn’t any surprise that recent decades have upgraded some of the sci-fi staple’s more hokey-looking foes. Now, Season 10 will take us back to the classic-looking Cybermen for a two-part arc that kicks off Peter Capaldi’s final episodes.
We haven’t heard very much from Pearl Mackie’s Bill since learning that Doctor Who would say goodbye to Peter Capaldi at 2017's end, but surely our new companion is sticking around, right? Either way, Bill makes an impression in the latest Season 10 promo, heading into dangerous territory with Nardole and The Doctor.
Doctor Who isn’t even beginning the search for Peter Capaldi’s replacement until sometime this summer, but that isn’t stopping overseas betting agencies from attaching major stars to the title role. After some initial oddsmakers’ bets, another agency is placing high odds on not only a female Doctor, but on Tilda Swinton at that.
As tends to be the case with Doctor Who announcements, we have quite some time before the departure of star Peter Capaldi takes effect, and a full season in the meantime. Now, reports suggest how and when the search for a 13th Doctor will get underway with showrunner Chris Chibnall, and when to expect Season 11's premiere.
Doctor Who will reach a major turning point over the course of 2017, first saying goodbye to showrunner Steven Moffat in Season 10, and then Peter Capaldi himself in this year’s Christmas special. We won’t know the name of this replacement for some time, but U.K. oddsmakers are already placing strong bets on James Bond star Ben Whishaw, if Season 11 doesn’t opt for a major change.
It was only yesterday we read the writing on the TARDIS to learn that Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi would leave the series behind in 2017, and The BBC is already marking the beginning of the end. Season 10 has an official April premiere date, along with the U.S. debut of young adult spinoff Class.
The built-in turnover of Doctor Who keeps the Regeneration rumor mill in perpetual motion, and it seems Peter Capaldi is finally turning that wheel. The BBC confirms Capaldi will exit the role in 2017, kicking off the search for a 13th (technically 14th) Doctor.
You didn’t think Doctor Who would get through the 2016 Christmas special without a fresh trailer for 2017, did you? Prepare for Season 10 and a new companion, as the new trailer introduces The Doctor through the eyes of Pearl Mackie’s Bill, and boy are there a lot of questions.
Doctor Who fans have enjoyed Matt Lucas’ bumbling Nardole since his introduction in last year’s Christmas special, so much so that the character was brought back for this month’s “The Return of Doctor Mysterio,” and beyond into Season 10. Now, reports confirm Lucas’ character will be “stuck with” The Doctor for awhile as a defacto companion of sorts.
