Class creator Patrick Ness has urged US viewers to watch his Young Adult drama in order to help secure its future.

The Doctor Who spin off will make its debut across the pond on BBC America tonight, immediately after its parent show’s Series 10 premiere. Its showrunner has insisted that “there has been no decision made” regarding a second series, despite the fact that persistent rumours have suggested the contrary following its underwhelming response in the UK.

“America, watch it,” he told Inverse. “We want to do more.”

He continued: “There are still lots of stories for us to tell, especially with how it ends. I’ve got some evil stuff planned. I’ve got some evil ideas. Make sure you tell people, there’s evil stuff coming, so you need to watch. We’d love for America to embrace it. Fingers crossed.”

Pearl Mackie and Steven Moffat have been discussing Bill’s motivations for stepping aboard the TARDIS in a new interview with the Telegraph.

Discussing her on screen alter ego, who will make her official debut when the series returns this Saturday, the actress revealed: “She’s not from an extraordinary background with extraordinary privilege, so when she’s presented with this amazing man, she’s completely fascinated. If you’re offered all of space and time and you spend your days serving chips, you’re not going to stay serving chips, are you?”

The outgoing showrunner elaborated: “It’s not been a life of tragedy, but it has been a life of gentle disappointment. There are sadnesses, but her life hasn’t been going all that well.”

Three familiar faces from the Doctor Who universe have signed up to appear in a major new BBC Two drama, it has been announced.

The 4-part thriller, Collateral by David Hare, will be helmed by Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan, whose one-off guest stint as Sally Sparrow in Blink remains a firm fan favourite.

She willl be joined by John Simm, known for his role as the Master (which, coincidentally, he’ll be reprising in Series 10…), as well as former Rose Tyler actress Billie Piper.

Directed by SJ Clarkson, the drama explores the spiraling repercussions surrounding the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man in present day London, and filming began this week.

Pearl Mackie will be leaving Doctor Who after just one series, according to a new rumour.

Although her character, Bill Potts, has yet to officially appear on screen (last year’s Friend from the Future scene notwithstanding…), everybody’s favourite – *ahem* – tabloid has claimed that the Twelfth Doctor’s incoming companion will be vacating the TARDIS with him when he departs in this year’s Christmas Special. Their respective exits will give new showrunner Chris Chibnall the chance to start from scratch when he takes over for Series 11.

So, while it seems nonsensical to be discussing Pearl’s exit before she has even started, we thought it was worth reporting nonetheless. Let us know your thoughts in the comments…

Move over Kris Marshall, Tilda SwintonTom Weston-Jones and <insert latest rumoured actor/actress’ name here>, there’s a new Thirteenth Doctor favourite in town.

As BBC News reports, the most recent name to enter the running is Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is known for her previous roles in Broadchurch, Glue and the 2016 comedy Fleabag, which she also wrote. She is also set to star in the currently untitled Han Solo film, which means that she probably won’t have time to commandeer the TARDIS, too. But hey, you just never know with these things…
