Series 10 trailer released

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.

Classic series writer to return for Series 10

lastwitchronamunro02-lst065672
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.
