Showrunner Steven Moffat & series star Peter Capaldi are ready to call it quits on Doctor Who later this year, but the latest trailer for their series 10, their last, shows that they’re going out with a bang.
All new companions Bill and Nardole, the return of Missy/The Master, Daleks, strange new foes, the return of old school Cybermen, Mars, and so much more is jam packed into the minute long trailer.
Fittingly enough with a regeneration on the way during this year’s Christmas special, there seems to be an air of renewal for the series as a whole based on the trailers and the way they are selling it. The first episode of the new series is titled “Pilot” as if it’s the first episode of a new show.
Likely much of this is to do with seeming disappointment in some of the stories of the last few series from fans, and to do with the fact that the series is about to undergo a bunch of major changes very soon with new showrunner Chris Chibnell coming in and whoever is chosen to fill Capaldi’s shoes as The Doctor.
Doctor Who series ten stars Capaldi, Pearl Mackie and Matt Lucas and returns to BBC One and BBC America on April 15.
