“The next issue of SFX magazine, coming out Wednesday, has thirteen pages dedicated to #DoctorWho”

Now that April is almost upon us, expect a real ramp-up of publicity for Series 10.

Which is great, but I sincerely hope those 13 pages in SFX (and the other articles and reviews that will start showing up especially once the screenings for the first episode begin) aren’t filled with people writing about how crappy Series 9 and Clara Oswald was. Seriously. That’s a legitimate fear I have right now. Not that I expect SFX to do this (I’m looking forward to seeing what those 13 pages include), but it sometimes seems like people are lining up to say “oh Doctor Who is good now” and pile onto S9 and Clara in particular. Treat Series 10 as a fresh start by all means. And I hope people don’t compare Bill to Clara either because that would be unfair to Bill (she shouldn’t be compared to Rose, Martha or the others, either and she’s going to have her own story arc that won’t necessarily end with her becoming immortal). If you don’t like S9, or you hate Clara, then ignore both and move on.

Doctor Who returns Saturday, April 15 at 9/8c followed by Spin-Off Series Class at 10/9c.

Peter will be joined in season 10 by new companion Pearl Mackie (Bill), and Matt Lucas (Nardole) with guest appearances to come from David Suchet and Michelle Gomez. He has starred alongside Jenna Coleman as his companion Clara Oswald, Alex Kingston as River Song, Ingrid Oliver as Osgood, as well as Keeley Hawes, Tom Riley, Frank Skinner, Maisie Williams, Joivan Wade and many more. Peter’s Doctor has fought Daleks and Davros, Cybermen, Zygons, new monsters like the Veil and old foes the Time Lords.

Capaldi will return in the next season for 12 episodes in April, followed by the Christmas Special when the regeneration will take place.

BBC America’s new Doctor Who spin-off, Class, comes from award-winning YA writer and executive producer, Patrick Ness (A Monster Calls), and is executive produced by Moffat and Minchin.

Following the season 10 premiere, the new eight-part series will follow four Coal Hill School students who have hidden secrets and desires, navigate a life of friends, parents, school work, sex, sorrow – and possibly the end of existence. Coal Hill School has been a part of the Doctor Who universe since the very beginning, but that has come at a price. Time travelling over the years has caused the very walls of space and time to become thin. There’s something pressing in on the other side, something waiting for its chance to kill everyone and everything, to bring us all into Shadow. The program stars Greg Austin as Charlie; Fady Elsayed as Ram; Sophie Hopkins as April; Vivian Oparah as Tanya and Katherine Kelly as Miss Quill.
