It’s March 15, and you know what that means–it’s officially one month until Doctor Who returns! And look at what we have to look forward to!
Ice Warriors! Mondasian Cybermen! A trip to Egypt! The Fourth Doctor’s sonic screwdriver! David Suchet!
Ever since Steven Moffat announced that he was resigning as showrunner after Doctor Who‘s tenth season, rumors were rampant that Peter Capaldi, the irrepressible Twelfth Doctor, would be leaving as well. After all, David Tennant and Russell T. Davies left at the same time; why wouldn’t Moffat and Capaldi do the same?
Well, Den of Geek recently published an interview with Moffat where he says there are currently no plans for Capaldi to regenerate at the end of season 10. As the Moff himself says, “Peter is loving the role, and long may he do so.”
Of course, this is Moffat we’re talking about; he could be lying through his teeth. But this is one time where I’m inclined to believe him.
After months of intense speculation, we finally know who will be playing the new companion on Doctor Who. The Doctor’s latest companion is a 2017 Earth girl named Bill, portrayed by Pearl Mackie.
We don’t know much about her other than she likes to ask questions and say things that pretty much everyone who has ever watched the show has thought at least one time. But from what I’ve seen so far, I like her.
Welcome aboard the TARDIS, Bill!
