You know that a new series of Doctor Who is just around the corner when Radio Times release their dedicated issue, and this one features Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie on the cover as they look ahead to their upcoming adventures.

Be sure to pick up a copy to add to your collection!

Peter Capaldi has confirmed that he has already filmed his regeneration scene, describing his final on screen moments as “explosive”.

This is most intriguing, especially as the Christmas Special – billed as his final episode – isn’t set to start filming until July. It would suggest that the Twelfth Doctor regenerates sooner than expected, which is certainly what the recent Series 10 trailer would have us to believe. Whenever it happens, the actor told the Sydney Morning Herald that his incarnation “goes out a fighter”.

“It was a strange day,” he continued. “It feels sad to be saying goodbye to everybody I’ve worked with for 3 years. I’m sentimental about it. Soon, I won’t be Doctor Who anymore.”

So, what devilish trick has Moffat got up his sleeves for his final regeneration? We dread to think, but the outgoing showrunner teases fans that it will contain “all our trauma needs”…

In 2015 the Twelfth Doctor journeyed to Abbey Road, the year before that it was Big Ben, and this year he has set his sights on another iconic London landmark.

The TARDIS materialised on the Southbank yesterday alongside a stunning piece of street artwork by 3D Joe & Max. It was all to promote the show’s long awaited return to our screens this weekend, as Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie were also on hand to check out the magnificent alien landscape. Pretty cool, huh?! Over 50 years later and he still knows how to make a scene…

Another day, another tantalising teaser video… because apparently we haven’t been teased enough already!

This one features Pearl Mackie, Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat looking ahead to Series 10 as we’re taken behind the scenes during the filming of the Time for Heroes trailer. The premiere, The Pilot, “begins the show again”, according to its outgoing showrunner, as the Doctor, Bill Potts and Nardole are thrown head first at the universe and “told to deal with it”. What could possibly go wrong? We can’t wait to find out! Five days and counting…

With Series 10 exactly one week away, a new video has been released today in which Pearl Mackie, Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat introduce the new companion, Bill Potts.

According to her real life alter ego, Bill “doesn’t know very much about the world” but still “calls the Doctor out on a lot of things”, while the Twelfth Doctor actor has described her as “a regular human being” who “life hasn’t been great to”. The outgoing showrunner also explains how he approached her character in “a simple way”, as “somebody who asked a different bunch of questions”.

You can read the full interviews with Peter, Pearl and Steven – as well as one with Matt Lucas about all things Nardole – in the official media pack which was also released today.

Series 10 begins ONE WEEK today on BBC One at 7:20pm. Watch the new trailer »

He’s the man who will save your lives and when he does, you’ll spend the rest of your lives wondering who he was.

That man is, of course, the Doctor, who is also the subject of our Fan Art Friday this week, kindly sent in by @cnayloractor on Twitter. Pretty neat, huh? Eyebrows on fleek.

regeneration-teased-in-dramatic-series-10-trailer

With less than two weeks to go until the Doctor is back on our screens, the BBC have released a new trailer for his upcoming adventures.

The 30 second teaser boasts an array of previously unseen clips, but it’s what happens at the very end that is particularly intriguing. We all know by now that Peter Capaldi will be bidding farewell to the TARDIS in the Christmas Special, but this latest development suggests that his regeneration may begin a lot sooner than expected. Unless, that is, it’s all just a red herring to get us all talking/throw us off the scent!

Needless to say, it has definitely succeeded on both of those counts! You can check it out in the player below, and let us know your thoughts and theories in the comments. Whether you like it or not, the end of the Twelfth Doctor is a-comin’. After this, though, we’re not exactly sure when. We’re sure you’ll agree, this has got Steven Moffat written all over it…

Peter Capaldi is interviewed in today’s Sunday Times in which he confirms that this year’s Christmas Special – AKA, his final episode as the Doctor – will be filmed in July.

The actor will be stepping down from the iconic role after three series and revealed that he’ll “quite possibly” burst into tears when the time comes to vacate the TARDIS this summer. “I’ve cried already – no, not really,” he said. “But they’re such a nice group of people, so I’ll miss them terribly. And, you know, it’s the end of something. I’ve never done anything for this long before.”

He added: “It is connected to my childhood, plus it brings this warm response from people and children, fans of all different stripes. It’s a magical thing. But then suddenly, it’s over…”

But not quite yet! Peter returns as the Doctor for his final full series on Saturday 15th April.
