The long wait is over for all loyal viewers of the long-running sci-fi classic, “Doctor Who” now that BBC America finally released the first trailer for “Doctor Who” Season 10. The show’s first official trailer will introduce the fans to the Doctor’s new companion, Bill Potts who will be played by Pearl Mackie.

In the 50-minute trailer, there are minimal details about Bill. Deadline described Bill as an enthusiastic travel companion. She seems to be ecstatic that she gets to travel to time and space. She is a very curious and full of questions companion for the Doctor.

Aside from that, in the trailer, you will also see the return of one of the fans favorite, Nardole, portrayed by Matt Lucas. There is no definite date yet for the show’s premiere. However, it is scheduled in spring 2017.

According to Screen Crush, Jenna Coleman’s character as Clara Oswald might also return in the series’ upcoming season. During Peter Capaldi’s interview at the Awesome Con panel in Washington D.C, he gave a hint that he just shot something and Clara was in it.

And as for Capaldi, he officially signed a contract throughout the show’s season 10. He is the 12th actor to take on the iconic character of the Doctor when he landed the role back in 2013. However, the upcoming season will be Steven Moffat’s last time as the show’s showrunner. Moffat already confirmed that he will leave the series after season 10.

“Doctor Who” Christmas special entitled “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” aired Christmas day and fans have different reactions to it. But here’s what Peter got to say about the traditional Christmas special, “I have always watched Doctor Who at Christmas, even before I was involved. I still do, but now I watch it from behind the sofa because I’m terrified of my acting and my hair! But it’s still the centerpiece of our day. I wouldn’t like to deprive my family of that. Doctor Who should be on Christmas Day. It suits Christmas.”

Before “Doctor Who” Christmas special came out, Jobs & Hire shared that Capaldi already gave an exciting detail about the show and that is, he will be facing and challenging monsters. For those who have seen the Christmas episode, you can share your comments below.
