Peter Capaldi‘s Doctor Who is back on September 19th as the series enters its 9th season under show-runner Steven Moffatt. The first episode The Magiacian’s Apprentice finds Clara (Jenna Coleman) in need of the good Doctor’s help when Earth’s skies are frozen by an unknown alien race. The problem? No one can find the Doctor, but as Clara says in the trailer below, “If anyone can find him it’s me.”
Doesn’t that picture of Capaldi need some Old Time Rock & Roll ala Risky Business music to go with it? This season promises that Doctor Who will come face to face with some of his past decisions and darker deeds. The Magician’s Apprentice is a two-part episode with an appearance of Michelle Gomez‘s wonderfully manic Missy, The Master.
I’m looking forward to seeing some more of Peter Capaldi’s Doctor and especially looking forward to Game of Thrones‘ Maise Williams joining the Doctor Who cast for a couple of episodes.
Don’t forget that there will be a “Prequel” episode The Doctor’s Meditation that will air September 15th as part of a Fathom event at theaters. The screening will include the last two episodes of season eight and a bonus:
Also, exclusive to theaters, a never-before-seen prequel to season nine and Wil Wheaton (The Big Bang Theory, Star Trek: Nemesis) hosts an interview with stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman.
Are you ready to get your Doctor on?
