We’ve only just begun the farewell Doctor Who season for Peter Capaldi, but something very fishy is going on with Twelve’s regeneration. Not only has Capaldi already shot his demise, but a new trailer shows us more of the impending regeneration, and first look at John Simm making his Master-ful return.
The built-in turnover of Doctor Who keeps the Regeneration rumor mill in perpetual motion, and it seems Peter Capaldi is finally turning that wheel. The BBC confirms Capaldi will exit the role in 2017, kicking off the search for a 13th (technically 14th) Doctor.
You didn’t think Doctor Who would get through the 2016 Christmas special without a fresh trailer for 2017, did you? Prepare for Season 10 and a new companion, as the new trailer introduces The Doctor through the eyes of Pearl Mackie’s Bill, and boy are there a lot of questions.
Sherlock likely knows its fourth season premiere will soothe your New Years’ hangover, but will you recover enough by the finale to venture out? Put on a pot of coffee and down some aspirin, as Season 4 finale “The Final Problem” will have a theatrical release for Sherlock and co.
We’ve yet to see a formal trailer for Doctor Who 2016 Christmas special “The Return of Doctor Mysterio,” but the sheer volume of fresh photos might just make up for it. Meet the mysterious “Ghost” in, and out of costume, as The Doctor and Nardole undertake a new Manhattan adventure complete with babies and creepy surgeons.
We haven’t even made it through Halloween yet, but why wait for Doctor Who to get us in the mood for Christmas? The TARDIS is back on the scene and taking aim at superheroes, as The BBC releases a new preview for 2016 Christmas special “The Return of Doctor Mysterio,” along with a first synopsis.
Doctor Who gave fans plenty of notice that Steven Moffat would be leaving the series in 2017, though the question inevitably turns to when Peter Capaldi himself will regenerate into a new actor. We’ve heard some vague suggestions before, but at least according to Moffat, “I have no reason to suppose that I’m writing out a Doctor.”
Doctor Who has plenty of time to figure out its future, airing only a Christmas Special in 2016 before kicking off Steven Moffat’s final episodes in 2017, that we don’t yet have an official companion to replace Jenna Coleman’s Clara. That said, one report claims EastEnders star Rakhee Thakrar may be in the running.
