Series nine of DOCTOR WHO — the second for Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor and the last for Jenna Coleman as Clara — returns tonight with the first installment of a two-parter, “The Magician’s Apprentice.”
This is the official episode synopsis:
“Where is the Doctor? When the skies of Earth are frozen by a mysterious alien force, Clara needs her friend. But where is the Doctor, and what is he hiding from? As past deeds come back to haunt him, old enemies will come face-to-face, and for the Doctor and Clara, survival seems impossible.”
“The Magician’s Apprentice” airs tonight at 9 on BBC America.
