Video Teaser for the Premiere of DOCTOR WHO

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.

Photos Tease Tonight’s Return of DOCTOR WHO

“The Magician’s Apprentice,” the debut episode of the ninth season of the revived DOCTOR WHO, and the second starring Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor, premieres tonight at 9 o’clock on BBC America.

If you’re not already practically vibrating while waiting for the show to start, here are some intriguing photos to get you in the spirit.

These images remind of the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) performing for the Gods of Ragnarok in season 24’s “The Greatest Show in the Galaxy,” don’t you think?

If you’re not foaming at the mouth for the debut now, I can’t do any more for you…

Jenna Coleman: From Soufflé Girl to Queen in One Day

Former DOCTOR WHO co-star Jenna Coleman, who had played Clara, assistant to the 2,000-year-old Time Lord on the 52-year-old BBC series since 2012, will play a long-lived character herself, Queen Victoria, in VICTORIA, an eight-part ITV drama about the British monarch.

Coleman said:

“I am delighted to be cast as Queen Victoria in this ambitious drama of her life. She is a vivid, strong, inspirational and utterly fascinating woman in British history and I can’t wait to tell her story.”

Interestingly, Coleman played a version of Clara who existed during the Victorian era as a barmaid/governess.

Coleman, who confirmed her departure from the TARDIS this morning, will portray the queen from age 18 — when she ascended the throne — through her marriage to Prince Albert.

VICTORIA, recounting the life of the second-longest-serving monarch (behind the still-sitting Queen Elizabeth II), will begin filming in October.

Coleman’s final season as a series regular on DOCTOR WHO begins tomorrow at 9 p.m. on BBC America.

Jenna Coleman Quits DOCTOR WHO — Again, and for the Last Time

Jenna Coleman confirmed this morning on BBC Radio 1 that she is leaving DOCTOR WHO this season.

“I have left the TARDIS,” Coleman told host Nick Grimshaw. “It’s happened. I filmed my last scene.”

Coleman confirmed that Clara’s exit has “been in the works for a very long time.”

Craziest Rumor of the Week: The 13th Doctor Is Already Cast!

doctorsneerDOCTOR WHO returns to screens around the planet Saturday evening, so of course it’s time to step up the speculation about when it’s all going to spiral into entropy.

Mysterious “sources” — those things multiply like adipose, don’t they? — claim to know what will happen in this year’s Christmas Special, and what will happen is very… weird.

If moviepilot.com is to be believed — in which case, SPOILER! — the 12th Doctor will encounter “a Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come” in the form of his next incarnation and sexy companion!

It has already been widely rumored that Jenna Coleman’s Clara will not be in the 2015 holiday episode, making plenty of room for the return of River Song (Alex Kingston). The story will have the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and River fighting an alien menace in the far future.

And that’s where our heroes get a glimpse of the 13th Doctor: very young, wearing a blue suit and matching pea coat as well as sunglasses. The actor is said to be just 20 years old! Supposedly his new companion will be played by model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne!

Capaldi would then not have a 10th season, but rather a David Tennant-like succession of three hour-long “specials” throughout 2016 before leaving the role on New Year’s Day 2017.

Can you say Oodshit?
