Doctor Who kept his eyes on the future with Comic Con 2015's Season 9 trailer and premiere date, but the Time Lord isn’t above looking to the past, and occasionally through 3D glasses. Before Season 9, the BBC will take Doctor Who Season 8's final two installments to theaters, along with an exclusive short previewing The Doctor’s ninth run.
Doctor Who had a timeline’s worth of work to do last year in introducing Peter Capaldi as Matt Smith’s replacement, regrettably costing Whovian fans a Comic-Con appearance. Now, Peter Capaldi makes his Doctor Who debut at Comic-Con 2015 to preview the ninth season of the series, teasing plenty of twists and turns for Missy, Clara, The Doctor, and all those in Season 9's path.
It’s here, it’s here! The first trailer for Season 9 of BBC’s Doctor Who has finally arrived. We’ll have more about the upcoming ninth season of the long-running series from the show’s Comic-Con 2015 panel shortly, but until then prepare yourselves for Daleks, mercenaries and lots of terrifying antagonists (both familiar and not).
Doctor Who disappointed a few fans last year with news that the longrunning BBC sci-fi would sit out Comic-Con for a world press tour introducing Peter Capaldi’s new iteration to the world, but with Season 9 on the horizon, Doctor Who is coming right back where he belongs. Get your first hint of what to expect when The Doctor graces San Diego once more this summer!
Doctor Who's 2015 Christmas Special did well to tide us over after the Season 8 finale, but Season 9 seems an eternity away for our 12th Time Lord's return. Bridge the gap with our first details and taste of the two-part Season 9 premiere, which confirms a certain Master-full woman will return to menace Peter Capaldi once more!
Excited though we are for ‘Doctor Who’ to send off 2014 with its annual Christmas special, this year’s featuring Nick Frost as a sinister-seeming Santa, we can’t shake trepidation over recent rumors that “Last Christmas” would prove the…well, last for Jenna-Louise Coleman’s Clara. Now, the BBC has stepped in to address the departure, while another rumor suggest Clara will be around a bit longer.
‘Doctor Who’ must seemingly always contend with rumors of its current cast departing, and though Peter Capaldi has been confirmed at least for a second year as the regenerating Time Lord, less certain is the fate of Jenna Coleman’s Clara. Certainly not helping matters is the official title for the 2014 Christmas special, which along with a new poster, teases that someone will be having their “Last Christmas!”
'Doctor Who' has played host to a number of impressive guest stars over the years, increasingly moreso recognizable to the the show's international fanbase, and it seems Christmas has come early for loyal viewers. While the new season under Peter Capaldi continues each Saturday, the longrunning BBC sci-fi classic has added 'Shaun of the Dead' star and frequent Simon Pegg collaborator Nick Frost to its 2014 Christmas special, along with two others.
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.
