“Doctor Who” season 12 returns to BBC America in early 2020.
“What do we do?”
“Why you asking her?”
“‘Cause she’s in charge, bro.”
If that’s not a killer way to introduce the first female Doctor to the public, then we don’t know what is.
Watch the new official trailer for season 11 of the iconic sci-fi show above.
The new season of Doctor Who returns to BBC America on Sunday, Oct. 7.
If you’re part of the Clone Club (fan club for the hit BBC America show, Orphan Black) then you were given a special surprise during the season finale of the show last month in the form of a slight teaser for the upcoming season of Doctor Who.
Though the teaser was just that, something to tide fans over, the official first trailer for the hit, long-running sci-fi show has made its debut.
Yesterday afternoon, three current cast members Peter Capaldi (The Doctor), Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), and Michelle Gomez (Missy, aka the Master) as well as current show runner, Steven Moffat were all on hand in San Diego for their Comic Con Q&A session/panel
During their panel, the official season nine trailer for the series was unveiled to a packed Hall H. In the minute-and-a-half clip, we see the return of Missy after being apprehended at the end of last season, Clara and the Doctor doing what they do best, running around the galaxy and beating the bad guys, as well as the highly anticipated debut of Game of Thrones star, Maisie Williams.
Watch the clip below.
The new season of Doctor Who is scheduled to return to BBC America on Saturday, Sept. 19. Don’t forget to mark it on your calendars.
As Christmas arrived, Doctor Who fans gathered around their television screens to see whether or not the Doctor’s current companion, Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), would be saying good-bye to the long-running science fiction series.
After months of speculation and a cryptic statement from the network, Clara’s fate was sealed at the end of the yearly Christmas episode last night.
The outcome of the episode, which had fans under the impression that Clara would be leaving the Doctor for good, was just a facade and Clara would in fact be staying by the Doctor’s side at least for another season. Coleman went ahead and confirmed the news after the episode aired on BBC America.
“I get a whole other series [season] of stories with the Doctor and I couldn’t walk away with the story being unresolved,” said Coleman.
“I think they’ve finally just reached a point where they really understand each other.”
Talks of Coleman’s departure began when current showrunner, Steven Moffat, had revealed that only Peter Capaldi had signed on for the next season.
U.K. tabloids then began to report that Coleman has changed her mind about leaving the franchise and was slated to continue her role on the show. While fans debated about Coleman and her decision, the BBC urged fans to tune into the Christmas episode for an answer.
The fate of The Doctor’s companion Clara Oswald on Doctor Who has been up in the air for several months since it was reported that actress Jenna Coleman would be saying good bye to the series before the next season begins.
The new season of the show, featuring the Twelfth incarnation of the Doctor, has wrapped up for the year with only the annual Christmas special left. Coincidentally, the 2013 Christmas special had fans say good bye to the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) after several years of manning the TARDIS.
When asked about the speculation that Coleman would be leaving the show, current showrunner Steven Moffat had recently reveal that only Peter Capaldi had signed on for the next season, fueling rumors that Coleman would in fact be exiting the series before the year ends.
Responding to UK tabloid which reported that the actress has changed her mind and decided to stay on board the long-running sci-fi series, the BBC has responded that Coleman and her character’s fate will be addressed during the Christmas episode which is slated to air on BBC America on Christmas Day.
“Viewers will have to watch the Christmas episode to find out,” the network responded.
In other words, Whovians are exactly where they were when the rumors began; wondering if a new companion will be coming in and Clara will be exiting out.
“You don’t own me.”
That pretty much summarizes Sarah’s reaction on Orphan Black when she found out that she was a scientific experiment and that Doctor Leekie and the DYAD Institute wanted her to sign that contract at the end of season one.
Now, with season three already in production, we have gotten the first teaser. Before you get excited for the teaser, we would like to point out that there is no actual footage from the upcoming season and it’s really all about that one cell multiplying from one to a lot. Kind of the whole idea behind the cloning.
But don’t get too angry at the people behind the series; the first official trailer will premiere this Saturday, Nov. 8, during the season finale of Doctor Who on BBC America,.
Like the trailer left it, Orphan Black‘s return date has not been given, just a simple “coming soon.” Though it was already confirmed it will be coming back in 2015 and we’re going to take a shot in the dark and assume it might return in April since that’s the same time season two premiered earlier this year.
“Clara, tell me, am I a good person?” “I…don’t know.”
For Doctor Who fans, this simple question, the first official vocal interaction between Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) and the newly regenerated Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) might mark a big change between the connection between the Doctor and his companion.
For most of the nu-Who incarnations, the Doctor and his companions have always been buddies and playful, not straight away of course, but there has never been an underlying fear in the relationship, though the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) was rough around the edges.
To see Clara not able to answer the new Doctor’s simple question, it might make fans wonder, just how dark the new protagonist will be for his turn inside the TARDIS. Since the anouncement to cast Capaldi as the titular character, there had been confirmation that helis Doctor would be darker than any of the others. For now, fans of the hit British sci-fi program will have to rely on the trailers and supposed “spoilers” until the series return on August 23 on BBC America.
Check out the new trailer which premiered during what else, the World Cup 2014 finals, feature a host of old friends and villains as well as our world saving pair.
Whovians can now rejoice because the Doctor and his companion Clara Oswald will be coming to a telly near you this August. For what seemed like a century, or a boring, suburaban day for the Doctor, the show has been on hiatus. The last time we saw our favorite Time Lord, he had regenrated into his new persona, the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and was complaining about the color of his kidneys; our dear Clara was too shell-shocked to speak.
Since the official season finale, there have been no new episodes of the series. There were two specials though, the 50th anniversay which brought us three Doctors and Bad Wolf as well as the annual Christmas special where this year, the Sonic Screwdriver was officially handed down from Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith to Capaldi.
After five months, the BBC and BBC America have been nice enough to give fans a 15-second teaser, which is greatly appreciated because behind-the-scene photos just are not cutting it anymore. Check out the teaser.
Doctor Who is slated to return in August, but when exactly, only he (and the BBC) will know.
On the seventh day of Christmas, the BBC gave to me (us); a thirty-second teaser of “The Time of the Doctor. ”
Watch as the Doctor and Clara get all domestic and try to cook a turkey. Of course, neither is the wiser when it comes to cooking the poultry and Clara tells the Doctor to use his Sonic Screwdriver and “app” it. Apparently, the Screwdriver doesn’t do turkey, but a time machine does.
With just a week until we say good-bye to Matt Smith and hello to Peter Capaldi, the BBC have released a new trailer for the Christmas special, “The Time of the Doctor.”
The previous trailer for the annual special found us hearing the Daleks confirm that the Doctor was “regenerating”; in this new trailer we see that the Doctor and his companion, Clara Oswald end up visit her family for the holidays.
Like any episode of Doctor Who, the family visit is short-lived because it’s time to save the world. The trailer, much like the official poster for the special reveals that we will be encountering many of our favorite (or not so favorite) villains such as the Daleks, the Silence, the Cybermen and those pesky Weeping Angels.
Check out the newly extended trailer for the episode and don’t forget that it airs on Christmas Day at 9 P.M. on BBC America.
