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

has-bill-potts-fate-already-been-sealed

Bill Potts hasn’t even made her official on screen debut yet (Friend from the Future notwithstanding…), but already fans are speculating about her departure.

It’s nothing personal, Pearl. We’re just weird like that.

We can sort of be forgiven in this instance, however, as her intriguing monologue in the recently released Series 10 trailer has definitely left us with cause for concern. She’ll step aboard the TARDIS to see the universe anew on Saturday 15th April, and she wouldn’t miss it for the world…

Even if it kills her. Now, Doctor Who fans are known for reading too much into things, but it looks like that’s exactly what Steven Moffat wants us to be doing. Is she foreshadowing the tragic events to come, or is it another momentous Moffat red herring to throw us all off the scent? Let us know what you think of these developments in the comments section below…

the-mondasian-cybermen-are-back-but-what-does-it-all-mean

Just in case Steven Moffat’s final series as showrunner wasn’t sounding exciting enough already, they’ve just dropped the bombshell that he’s bringing back the Mondasian Cybermen, too. Be still our beating Whovian hearts.

Of course, the metal monsters are no strangers to the revived series, having been familiar – *ahem* – foes since their comeback in Series 2. Thus far they’ve been 2.0 versions from a parallel universe (with other tweaked variations thereupon…), but this time it’s out with the new and in with the old as the genuine articles are back to fight another day.

And we’re pretty damned excited. But of course, the news of their comeback begs the all-important question: what the hell is going on?! They first appeared in the First Doctor’s last serial The Tenth Planet, in which they attempted to take humans to their home planet of Mondas for conversion, and something tells us that this will still be high on their agenda…

But let’s not forget that Missy will also be back in the finale – has she formed an allegiance with the Cybermen? It certainly wouldn’t be the first time, and we bet her plan is even more devilish this time round, after her first attempt at world domination went down like a lead balloon. What’s more, the last time we saw her she did say she’d had a clever idea…

So, what’s it all about? There’s still a while before we find out (the episodes in question are still being filmed), but we’d love to hear your initial thoughts and theories. Their return is a dream come true for Peter Capaldi, but are you as excited to be welcoming them back? We dread to think what they’ll have in store, but it’s the series finale – and Steven Moffat’s last ever one – so it is safe to assume that it will all well and truly hit the fan. Bring it on, Moff.

mondasian-cybermen-return-for-series-10-finale

It has been confirmed that the Doctor will be facing a blast from the very distant past in Series 10 when the Mondasian Cybermen return for the grand finale.

Filming has now begun on Episodes 11 and 12, directed by Rachel Talalay, which will mark the first time the original metal monsters have been seen on screen in over 50 years.

Written by Steven Moffat, the climactic two-parter will also guest star Matt Lucas as Nardole and Michelle Gomez as Missy alongside Pearl Mackie as companion Bill.

Are you excited to see the Mondasian Cybermen again? The new series begins 15th April.

three-new-12th-doctor-bill-tie-in-novels-revealed

The covers and synopses for three brand new Doctor Who tie-in novels have surfaced online.

The books will be published on 20th April 2017, to coincide with the premiere of Series 10, and will complement the Doctor and Bill’s televisual adventures with three original stories, Plague City by Jonathan Morris, The Shining Man by Cavan Scott and Diamond Dogs by Mike Tucker.

Check out their plot details and artwork, featuring previously unseen images of our new TARDIS team, below.

Plague City by Jonathan Morris

“We should leave. We definitely should leave. But… chatty ghosts!”

The year is 1645, and Edinburgh is in the grip of the worst plague in its history. Nobody knows who will be the next to succumb – nobody except the Night Doctor, a masked figure that stalks the streets, seeking out those who will not live to see another day.
But death is not the end. The Doctor, Bill and Nardole discover that the living are being haunted by the recently departed – by ghosts that do not know they are dead. And there are other creatures lurking in the shadows, slithering, creeping creatures filled with an insatiable hunger.

The Doctor and his friends must face the terrifying secret of the Street of Sorrows – that something which has lain dormant for two hundred million years is due to destroy the entire city…

The Shining Man by Cavan Scott

“Being scared is the least of your worries.”

The Shining Men are everywhere. You spot them out of the corner of your eye. Abnormally tall, with long lank hair, blank faces and blazing eyes. If they catch you, they’ll drag you away to who knows where. No one is safe. They’re on every street corner. Waiting. Watching. Shining bright.

Of course it’s a hoax. It has to be, right? It started as a joke, a prank for Halloween. Then it went viral. Idiots dressing up as monsters. Giving folk a scare. Silly masks and fright wigs. No one gets hurt. Because bogeymen aren’t real.

Until people start going missing and lights burn in the darkness. Burning like eyes.

But help is on its way, in the form of a strange man called the Doctor and his friend, Bill. The Doctor will keep us safe. The Doctor will stop the monsters. Unless the monsters stop the Doctor first…

Diamond Dogs by Mike Tucker

“Here on Saturn, it literally rains diamonds.”

For over fifteen years the crew of Kollo-Zarnista Mining Facility 27 has been extracting diamonds from deep within the atmosphere of Saturn, diamonds that help to fund the ever-expanding Human Empire. But when a mining operation goes wrong, a rescue mission must be launched to save a worker lost overboard, a worker who claims that he has seen something amongst the swirling clouds. Something that can’t possibly exist.

When the Doctor and Bill arrive, they immediately find themselves caught between hostile miners, suspicious security guards and corrupt company officials as they face accusations of sabotage and diamond theft.

And below them, in the crushing atmosphere of the gas giant, something is starting to rise.
