New Doctor Who is just around the corner! And, naturally, that corner is at the end of a corridor filled with Daleks. Mind you, the Daleks are apparently not the big bad of the first episode; they’ll basically have just a cameo this season. So, a real quick rundown of what we can expect:
New companion Bill Potts!
Two Masters, face to face — John Simm and Melissa Gomez!
Way more Ice Warriors than we’ve ever seen before!
Smiling emoji bots!
Perfectly ordinary things made terrifying — apparently to include puddles and creaks in the floor!
A three-parter! (Also, it’s the one with two Masters! SQUEE!)
Cybermen — all the Cybermen! REALLY all the Cybermen, including the originals!
…the finale for #12.
But fear not . . . this is the Doctor. He changes, he goes on, and that means soon we get the joy of meeting a new Doctor all over again. Possibly sooner than we think; although we were told Capaldi would be staying through the Christmas special, that may not be the case after all; he’s filmed his final scene….. (Not necessarily his last scene to be filmed, but the last scene we’ll get to see of his Doctor. I say possibly not the last because we know the next Doctor isn’t yet cast. Hmmm…..something is up, and I wonder what?)
In any case, strap in, because tomorrow it all starts with The Pilot…..
