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.
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.
For many longtime Doctor Who fans, the era of the Fourth Doctor holds a special place in our hearts. Tom Baker, an actor with a style as unique as his appearance, played the Doctor for seven seasons and 172 episodes from 1974 to 1981. And if you were an American kid watching Doctor Who on PBS in the 1980s, he was almost certainly the first Doctor you saw. Some of his seasons are better than others, to be sure, but long before David Tennant put on his own overcoat, this era set the standard by which all Doctors were judged.
So it's with a hopefully healthy amount of Fourth Doctor nostalgia that I approach Titan's Doctor Who comics. I haven't read a lot of Doctor Who comics before, but the just released Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor Vol. 1: Gaze of the Medusa seems like a good place to start.
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.
