The moment we have been waiting for is HERE!

The BBC has announced that Pearl Mackie will be stepping aboard the TARDIS as the Twelfth Doctor’s new companion.

Her character, Bill, was introduced in the form of a new trailer, aptly titled Friend from the Future, in which Peter Capaldi and his incoming co-star came face to face with the dreaded Daleks. Bill has been described as “cool, strong, sharp, a little bit vulnerable with a bit of geekiness thrown in” and she will accompany the Doctor throughout Series 10 in 2017.

Filming on her string of adventures will begin in Cardiff next month, and Pearl has revealed that she cannot wait to get started. “I am incredibly excited to be joining the Doctor Who family,” she said. “It’s an institution so I couldn’t be prouder to call the TARDIS my home.”

Peter, meanwhile, added: “It is a genuine delight to welcome Pearl Mackie to Doctor Who. A fine, fine actress with a wonderful zest and charm, she is a refreshing addition to the TARDIS and will bring a universe of exciting new possibilities to the Doctor’s adventures.”

You can now pre-order this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special on DVD and Blu-ray, because Whovians are nothing if not unashamedly organised.

Although The Return of Doctor Mysterio doesn’t actually air until Christmas Day, you can already reserve your own copy of it in time for its release – on both formats – on 23rd January 2017. There has been no official artwork or special features confirmed yet but it’s still early days, seeing as we’ve actually got to watch the episode first. Still, there’s no harm in being prepared. It’s what the Doctor would do. Probably.

Facing an impossible choice, our heroes must use all they’ve learnt to save Earth. But how far are they prepared to go? And will they have to pay a price? This time, not everyone will make it out alive.

After two months of high octane drama, detention and debauchery, it was the end of term this week as Charlie and the gang joined forces to save Earth in the series finale of Class

…and after last week’s epic cliffhanger, it’s safe to say that none of us really knew what to expect from our final journey to Coal Hill Academy. Patrick Ness pulled out all the stops for the climactic conclusion which continued to push the boundaries in the only way that a Young Adult drama set within the Doctor Who universe knows how. It was loud, it was mad and it was full of shocks and surprises, but was it the ending that you had been hoping for?

All good things must come to an end so wipe away those tears and let us know what you thought of The Lost, as well as your feedback on the first series of Class in general. As we await news of a second series (its creator is certainly “optimistic”!), discuss what you’d like to see next and what ramifications you think the finale’s Earth-shattering events will have on our honourable heroes… Whatever the future holds, it has been one hell of a ride!

With the gang trapped in detention and out of the way, Miss Quill accepts Dorothea’s astonishing offer: to help remove the Arn from her head, and to reclaim her freedom.

As Class reached its penultimate episode, there were shocks and surprises waiting behind every metaphysical corner when Miss Quill reaffirmed that she is war itself. To put it lightly.

But just who is she when she’s free? The latest episode – The Metaphysical Engine, Or What Quill Did – gave us all the answers as Miss Quill went AWOL with our Classmates stuck in the world’s most death-defying detention. Things weren’t exactly rosy for their teacher, either, as she put her trust in Dorothea to help remove the Arn once and for all…

And man, did things get gruesome! Now that you’ve all had a chance to watch it, feel free to let us know what you thought of the episode and its accompanying thrills below. As we prepare for the grand finale, what do you think lies in store? After that huge cliffhanger, it’s impossible to predict, but go ahead and have a go anyway. After all, it’s more fun that way.
