There is a batch of Doctor Who season 10 episodes that is premiering on BBC One / BBC America this weekend, and it already appears as though there is a lot of great stuff that is going to be coming up.
At the center of the story, yet again, is known other than Peter Capaldi’s The Doctor. he’s been around at this point long enough that he’s really seen everything, and with that, he can offer up some perspective. In speaking about the story ahead, and the new quality that showrunner Steven Moffat recently teased, here is what the actor had to say in a new set of interview questions / answers provided by the BBC:
“The show is down to the basic elements which are these fairly innocent but independent companions travelling with this mysterious creature from outer space who can travel in space and time and take them to the most amazing corners of the universe where they meet terrible monsters who try to kill them. That’s at its very simplest level but obviously, it’s more complex and there’s more to it than that but that’s pretty much what we do every week. Some seasons have been less like that but this season very much follows that model of delivering every week – the mysterious creature takes the companions to an exotic and dangerous place.”
One of the most exciting things about the new introduction-of-sorts for the show is that for new viewers, much of the story will be told through the perspective of Bill. Pearl Mackie’s character is new to this world, and she’s fresh, exciting, and different. This should lead to some fun moments and certainly some awkward ones — by the end of the season, though, maybe she’ll start to be used to the Tardis and all of its inner workings. That may be essential given that she will have another new Doctor to help out. Remember for a minute here that a regeneration is coming at the end of the upcoming Christmas Special. There’s a lot of time to get there, so don’t but out your hankies just yet. Otherwise, you’ll be crying through so many episodes that you could miss out on some of the fun!
