Fellow Whovians, this has been one of the most difficult years for our kind since the return of Doctor Who in 2005. We’ve been forced to endure an entire year without any new adventures aboard the TARDIS, and that’s got me feeling a little blue. I’m sure you feel the same.
Well, Christmas is nearly here, so we’ve got that to look forward to, but when will series 10 finally begin? According to an article at the Radio Times, Capaldi has stated the new series will begin airing in April 2017. That’s much better news than I expected.
Doctor Who used to begin airing in the spring, but has in recent years started moving to a fall premiere. If a return to spring premieres is definitely going to happen, that means our wait between the Christmas Special and the premiere of series 10 will be mercifully short.
If you’re still not convinced of this news, Doctor Who fan and contributor to Blogtor Who, Lucy Crewe (@CreativeCatFX) has posted a video on her Twitter account in which you can hear Capaldi state the date. I’ve embedded the tweet here:
You can hear Capaldi say, “… and then it starts again in April, I think,” at about the 10 second mark. While this is a far cry from an official announcement, it is encouraging news to all us Doctor Who fans who are slowly losing our ability to regenerate without the TARDIS in our lives.
