three-part-adventure-confirmed-for-series-10

It has been confirmed that Series 10 will include a three-part adventure, with Episodes 6-8 forming one linked story.

Toby Whithouse, who has returned to the show to write the third part, told Digital Spy: “Steven’s done the first one, Peter Harness did the second and I’ve done the third. It’s set in modern day, but if I told you more, Steven would come around and kick me in the shin!”

It is thought that the episodes will introduce a new villain, the Monks, who have been spotted in the recent trailer.

Are you intrigued by a three-parter, or do you like every episode to be a standalone story?

steven-discusses-leaving-advice-for-chris-chibnall

Steven Moffat has explained his decision to leave Doctor Who after 8 years as its showrunner.

His last full series as its lead writer begins on Saturday 15th April, before his final episode airs on Christmas Day. Speaking to World Screen, he admitted that he’s secretly surprised he’s managed to last this long, given the show’s “monstrous workload”. “This is the longest I’ve ever done anything,” he said. “I was one of the writers when it came back, getting on with other shows, and then I took over and it became a full-time job. I’m astonished at how long I’ve been doing it.”

He continued: “I’ve been looking after and worrying about Doctor Who for years now, plus Sherlock on top of that. You’re never more of a writer than when you write something new, you try something different. I miss all of that. I’d like to go and find a new thing to fail at!”

Speaking of his successor, Chris Chibnall, he affirmed: “He is an experienced showrunner, so he doesn’t need any of my advice. He has his own ideas about how to do Doctor Who.”

taking-a-closer-look-at-the-new-series-10-trailer

A brand new Doctor Who trailer dropped on Monday (if you haven’t watched it yet, where the hell have you been?!) as a much needed reminder that we’re now just one month away from Series 10. Get in!

Peter Capaldi’s third and final string of adventures as the 12th Doctor will kick off on Saturday 15th April in The Pilot, which will introduce Pearl Mackie as Bill Potts.

The new preview boasts an array of clips from the upcoming episodes, but it’s always worth digging a little deeper…

As such, join us as we take a closer look at the trailer and its accompanying thrills. Aside from the obvious (Missy, Daleks and Mondasian Cybermen), it included plenty of other truly awesome stuff to get excited about, so here’s our round up of the best and most intriguing bits. Let us know your theories and what stood out for you in the comments section below!

Above – The Doctor’s going to be *very* busy when he returns with a bang next month…


Above - Luckily, he’s about to meet a brand new mate to help share the load. It’s Bill Potts!


Above – The Daleks will also be back on 15th April. Well, it was only a matter of time, eh?


Above – So, this is new. A *human* saying Exterminate? She’s called Heather, apparently…


Above – The sonic sunglasses are back (YAY!) in this scene from Ep 7. Sunglasses are cool.


Above – Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No… it’s a space station – and a bloody impressive one!


Above – Here’s Bill getting emosh. Don’t cry, Bill! It will be 15th April before you know it…


Above - We wouldn’t want to bump into these Monks in a dark alley. Or anywhere, really…


Above – Another moment from Ep 7. As if a *barrier* is ever going to stop Team TARDIS…


Above – Bill ready for action in Ep 5. But what has shocked her? Probably something alien.


Above – Why didn’t anybody tell us that it was ‘National Bring Your Robot To Work Day’…?!


Above – An Emojibot from Episode 2. Friend or foe? You gotta admit, it *is* kinda cute…


Above – OK, maybe we spoke too soon. You never know, it might just be misunderstood…


Above – Look! It’s David Sachet as the Landlord in Episode 4. It’s time. But time for what?


Above – It looks like something has riled the Doctor here. Just look at the eyebrows gooo!


Above – I spy with my little eye… something from Episode 3. And it’s looking right at you…


Above – “Nice here, isn’t it?” Nardole looking on the bright side. How long will *that* last?


Above – That’s just creepy. Looks like Steven’s pulling out all the stops for his last series.


Above - We didn’t know how much we needed Nardole in a spacesuit in our lives until now.


Above – It’s a Monk! It is also weird to see a corridor that the Doctor isn’t running down…

The BBC have unveiled a new poster for Series 10 of Doctor Who, which is now just over one month away!

The Doctor will return to our screens on Saturday 15th April when he’ll be joined by Matt Lucas as Nardole and Pearl Mackie as Bill Potts. The TARDIS trio are featured in the new image, which suggests that his new companion is in for one hell of a bumpy ride…

In addition, the series premiere has now been officially named as The Pilot. Whatever that means…

5-things-were-most-looking-forward-to-in-series-10

With the brand new series of Doctor Who now just over a month away, anticipation for our beloved Time Lord’s grand televisual comeback is well and truly reaching fever pitch.

While his latest string of adventures remain an enigma wrapped in a mystery (what else is new?), there’s already lots for us to be excited about, including an incoming companion, the return of friends and foes alike, and the added sense of impending doom as a result of it being both Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat’s final full series at the helm of the TARDIS. Deep breaths, everybody, we’re in this together…

Because we never need an excuse to remind ourselves of the good times that lie ahead, here are 5 things we’re most looking forward to in Series 10. 5 things for the 5 weeks that remain. See, it’s exciting and topical. The best kind of countdown. You can thank us later.

1. “I’m Bill. I serve chips.”

Oh, but Bill, you’re so much more than that! Exactly what we’re not sure yet, but it’s safe to say that her life will change in unimaginable ways when she finally steps aboard the TARDIS to see the universe anew on 15th April. And she wouldn’t miss it for the world. Even if it kills her. Whatever that means…

Seriously, though. It doesn’t get much more exciting than kicking off a brand new series with a brand new companion to boot. Well, apart from kicking off a brand new series with a brand new Doctor, but we’ll get to that next year. For now, welcome aboard, Bill Potts!

2. “The bitch is back.”

Missy’s words, not ours! Although the full extent of her involvement in the new series remains to be seen, we know that she’ll definitely be back to rule another day (or at least try to…) in the two-part finale.

She was last seen in The Witch’s Familiar, in which she had a very good idea, so we dread to think what she’s got up her sleeve this time round. Missiles, probably.

3. Out with the new, in with the old…

That’s right, folks. The Mondasian Cybermen are BACK! First introduced in The Tenth Planet, the metal monsters have come a long way since their initial encounter with the First Doctor, so we’re looking forward to seeing them stripped back to basics in this year’s series finale. It’s Peter Capaldi’s dream come true, and it’s probably yours, too.

It’s the opposite of an upgrade, but it’s certainly a *stomp* in the right direction. Did you see what we did there?

4. Guessssss who’sssss back…

Yup, Missy and the Mondasian Cybermen aren’t the only familiar foes heading back to our screens in Series 10. The Ice Warriors -last seen in Cold War – will also be back. This time, though, with a twist. Love a twist.

According to writer Mark Gatiss, there will be something different about the reptilian rascals this time round, as “a new kind of Ice Warrior” is unleashed unto the world. Make of that what you will…

5. Shocks and surprises and twists, oh my!

If we’ve learned anything from Steven Moffat’s tenure thus far, it’s that it’s impossible to predict what he’s got in store. As his final full series as showrunner, though, this year the stakes are higher than ever. No doubt he’ll leave us shaking our fists in a combined outburst of rage and contentment. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. #BringItOn
