The BBC have released a brand new Doctor Who teaser to kick start their promotional campaign for Series 10.

The dramatic trailer doesn’t contain any footage from the upcoming adventures, however it does feature our new TARDIS trio – that’s Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie and Matt Lucas – walking ominously down a corridor towards a menagerie of impending doom. Naturally.

As Bill points out, she wouldn’t miss it for the world, and we’ll be able to join her on Saturday 15th April 2017.

Check out the teaser in the player below, and let us know what you think in the comments. What cryptic clues does it contain? And what secrets can you spot hidden on the shelves?

Pearl Mackie has responded to the recent news that her co-star Peter Capaldi will be stepping down as the Twelfth Doctor after one more series.

The actor will be bidding farewell to the TARDIS in this year’s Christmas Special after appearing alongside new companion Bill in Series 10.

The actress who plays her is featured as one of InStyle UK’s Rising Stars of 2017 and told them that she will be “so sad” to see him go.

“But I’m also so happy that I got to work with him,” she said. “He’s so generous actor and I am new to camera acting, so he’ll always check if I’m ok. He is very open to my opinions.”

She also revealed where she was when she found out that she’d won the part of the Time Lord’s coveted sidekick, as she reminisced: “I was at home with my housemate. The whole process was mad. It was like being in M15! Then my agent called me to tell me I got it and there was lots of tears. I had to call her back after, to check that it had actually happened!”

Series 10 of Doctor Who begins on BBC One on Saturday 15th April. Watch the trailer –>

billie-says-its-probably-time-for-a-female-doctor

Billie Piper has joined the campaign for a female Doctor by saying that casting a woman in the iconic role would be a “timely” move by the BBC.

Following the announcement that Peter Capaldi will be handing over the keys to the TARDIS this Christmas, the Rose Tyler actress was asked whether or not she would ever consider taking on the momentous mantle of the Time Lord. “I don’t know,” she told BBC News. “It’s a lot of work. But I think it would be great to have a female Doctor, especially given the spirit of the world at the moment.”

She added: “I’ve always said that I support the show’s original format, but then I honestly don’t know where they can take it from here. It would be a snub at this point, I think.”

Do you agree with Billie? Should the next Doctor be a woman? Join the discussion below…

breaking-news-peter-capaldi-to-leave-doctor-who-in-2017-christmas-special

It has been confirmed that Peter Capaldi will be leaving Doctor Who at the end of the year.

The announcement was made by the man himself during an appearance on Jo Whiley’s Radio 2 show earlier tonight (Monday), before an accompanying press release affirming the details of his exit was released online. After Series 10 airs this spring, the Time Lord will regenerate into the Thirteenth Doctor in this year’s Christmas Special, which will also be the last episode to be written by outgoing showrunner Steven Moffat.

“One of the greatest privileges of being Doctor Who is to see the world at its best,” Peter said. “From our brilliant crew and creative team working for the best broadcaster on the planet, to the viewers and fans whose endless creativity and generosity points to a brighter future ahead. I cannot thank everyone enough. It has been truly cosmic.”

As Steven also prepares to bid farewell to the “best job” he’ll ever have, he reassured fans by teasing that the Twelfth Doctor’s “greatest adventures are yet to come”, adding that, “Capaldi’s not done with you yet!” He continued: “Knowing that I’m leaving in the company of the best, kindest and cleverest of men makes the saddest of endings a little bit sweeter.”

So, there you have it! After a frenzy of speculation, the Twelfth Doctor’s time is running out. Will you be sad to see Peter go, or has his Doctor run his cause? And who should be his successor? Share your initial reactions to this breaking news in the comments below…

The BBC has released a new candid publicity shot of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor from this year’s Christmas Special.

TV’s favourite Time Lord will make his long overdue comeback to our screens on Christmas Day in The Return of Doctor Mysterio, and we can only assume that they’ve released this picture to remind us of what he looks like (it really has been that long…). We know it’s not much, but in a Doctor Who gap year, every little helps. We’ll be getting a new preview in a couple of weeks, though, so the dry spell is almost over…
