It’s safe to say that ‘Doctor Who’ has never been more popular, with each successive season in the modern era of the program adding fans at what feels like an almost exponential rate. The globalization of its fan base took the world by storm and the show by surprise; with the BBC happily capitalizing on what was once merely the passion of British audiences and small, cultish followings outside of England. But, in the aftermath of the latest season premiere, ‘Deep Breath’, it’s worth asking this question: While we know how those promoting the show feel about its amazing explosion in popularity, how does ‘Doctor Who’ itself feel about it?

It was recently announced that Jenna-Louise Coleman is leaving 'Doctor Who' later this year, following the annual Christmas Special. At that point, she'll have played the role of Clara Oswald (in some iteration) for 25 episodes, making her one of the longest-running companions of the eponymous Doctor. This position has traditionally been filled by a younger white woman, though the Doctor has occasionally taken on a male companion, but while the modern version of the series has seen some diversity, Clara's exit provides an opportunity for showrunner Steven Moffatt to once again pair the Doctor with a companion who subverts expectations.

Earlier this month, 'Doctor Who' showrunner Steven Moffat teased a "big introduction" and a "dynamic" hour of television for the series' eighth season premiere, and nothing says "big" and "dynamic" quite like a giant viewing on a massive screen. The BBC has just announced that they are indeed going literal with Moffat's promise: the new season premiere will bow on a big screen near you.
