Doctor Who fans rejoice! Following an achingly long 12 month break, Series 10 is due to kick off this weekend and expectations couldn’t be higher! I’ll warn you now, there may be a couple of light spoilers ahead so tread carefully!
The wonderful Peter Capaldi will be returning as the Doctor (in what has been confirmed as his final series) and he will be joined by a brand new companion in the form of Bill Potts played by Pearl Mackie. Also, very excitingly, Matt Lucas (who I’ll always remember from Shooting Stars and Little Britain!) will be returning as Nardole, a character who was last seen in the 2015 Christmas Special.
The first episode is called The Pilot and will show The Doctor meeting Bill while working as a lecturer in a University, he then of course whisks her away to his weird and wonderful world. Show writer Steven Moffat has promised that this episode is a great starting point for anyone who’s not seen the show yet, so there’s no excuse not to get involved!
It also wouldn’t be Doctor Who without a couple of scary moments to get us hiding behind the sofa courtesy of the huge range of villains that the series is well known for. It seems that new sidekick Bill is going to get chucked in at the deep end as the first episode is said to feature the greatest of all enemies, The Daleks!
Confirmed to be returning this series is The Master (played by John Simm) who has a long running history with the Doctor, some might say the ultimate version of a frenemy! Also returning will be Missy (played by Michelle Gomez) who is the female equivalent of The Master, what will happen when these two meet? Only one way to find out!
