Following the UK broadcast of the 2016 Doctor Who Christmas Special, The Return of Doctor Mysterio, fans were treated to a Series 10 teaser trailer, now also available online.
The trailer serves as an introduction to the Doctor’s upcoming companion, Bill, who serves chips for a living and knows the Doctor as a university lecturer. We also get a glimpse at some of the adventures the Doctor and Bill will be undertaking together – including a run-in with the Daleks – and at their fellow adventurer in time and space, Matt Lucas’ Nardole.
The trailer is likely to be shown after tonight’s broadcast of the Christmas Special on ABC, but can also be viewed below.

On the 21st of November, the ABC have confirmed that the Christmas Special will be aired on the ABC and also ABC ME at 7:30pm on Boxing Day. This is keeping with last years release as well.
As per last years release, the episode will also be available on ABC iview on Boxing day morning, immediately after the UK broadcast.

Doctor Who Magazine has reported that writer of Survival from the original series run – Rona Munro is to return for series ten.
Previously hinted by Steven Moffat back in October that a classic series writer would be returning, Munro is the first writer for the new series who has previously worked on the original series run.
Munro’s story, which is episode nine and entitled: The Eaters of Light is currently being filmed in Cardiff.
An interview with Munro states:
Writing Survival was my dream job, but it was a mournful time in the show’s history. This has been a very different experience. There’s more of everything; people, resources, confidence, success… but the same constantly renewing and indefinable wonder that is Doctor Who. When I was very small and watching the First Doctor, I had a special cushion known as ‘Rona’s Doctor Whocushion’. I would hide my face in it when the Daleks or other monsters appeared on screen! The Eaters of Light is my version of other stories that have haunted me for almost as long.

“Weirdly, this is the sort of crunch week where I get to find out exactly what I’m going to be doing next,” she told The Music. “I can officially say that I will be starting back on Doctor Who soon, so that’s one thing.”
Gomez last appeared in the role as Missy — short for The Mistress, a female incarnation of the Doctor’s long-time arch-enemy, the Master — in episodes one and two of series nine, The Magician’s Apprentice and The Witch’s Familiar.
