Doctor Who – Getting Ready For Series 9!

8 Sep

On Saturday, September 19, fans of Doctor Who will be turning in to SyFy and Space for the beginning of Series 9!  Returning as the good (12th) Doctor is Peter Capaldi, and Jenna Coleman returns as companion Clara Oswald!  Showrunner Steven Moffat wrote the first two episodes:

The Magician’s Apprentice

“Missy” (played by Michelle Gomez) returns in her current incarnation of the Master, and the Daleks return too!  From Spoiler TV and the BBC:

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 following Saturday, September 26, the concluding chapter of this two-parter plays out with:

The Witch’s Familiar

Once again, as per Spoiler TV:

Trapped and alone in a terrifying Dalek city, the Doctor is at the heart of an evil Empire; no sonic, no TARDIS, nobody to help.

With his greatest temptation before him, can the Doctor resist? And will there be mercy?

I have really enjoyed Capaldi’s take on the Doctor, and last season, Peter’s first as the Time Lord, got stronger as the season progressed.  I am really looking forward to the new season, and I may just do a weekly blog post, depending on how excited I get after watching!  Check out the first couple of Series 9 episodes and tell me what you thought!
