It’s been a long wait for Doctor Who fans. Until the most recent Christmas special, there had been no new episodes since December 2015.
However, The Doctor is finally back, he’s got a new companion and some familiar friends and foes with him.
The new trailer for season 10 of television’s longest running sci-fi show is finally here.
It stars Peter Capaldi as The Doctor, Pearl Mackie as his new companion Bill and Matt Lucas as Nardole.
Of course there are Daleks and Cybermen, as well as new emoji monsters we haven’t seen before.
Capaldi has already announced this will be his last season as The Doctor and writer/showrunner Steven Moffat has said he is leaving as well.
The new Doctor has not been revealed yet, and probably won’t be until the new season is well under way or almost finished. Capaldi’s last appearance will be in this year’s Christmas special.
There’s been a lot of speculation that the next Doctor could be a woman or an actor of color. However, the British press has been speculating lately that the BBC wants to go back to a younger more traditional Doctor to increase ratings and merchandise sales.
Season 10 of Doctor Who premieres on BBC America Saturday, April 15 at 9 pm ET. It is followed by the Doctor Who spinoff Class at 10 pm ET.
