“They’ve suddenly realised that they are the most fortunate people in all of time and space and are hell-bent on adventure,” said star Peter Capaldi, who reprises his role in the new series opposite Jenna Coleman. “(The Doctor) is in pursuit of joy and grabbing every thrill that he can along the way. But I sense him running from something, that even he does not yet understand…”
The first two episodes of the new series are titled “The Magician’s Apprentice” and “The Witch’s Familiar.” Both are written by Steven Moffat and directed by Hettie Macdonald and will see the return of Michelle Gomez as Missy. Episodes three and four, whose titles will be revealed later, are both written by Toby Whithouse and directed by Daniel O’Hara. Steven Moffat calls them ‘brilliantly creepy… one of our scariest adventures yet!’
Episode five of the new series will be titled “The Girl Who Died” and is written by Jamie Mathieson and Steven Moffat and directed by Ed Bazalgette. It will feature Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams in a guest role. It will be followed by episode six, “The Woman Who Lived,” written by Catherine Tregenna and directed by Ed Bazalgette; episodes seven and eight, written by Peter Harness and directed by Daniel Nettheim and featuring the return of the Zygons and Ingrid Oliver as Osgood; episode nine, of which there are no details; episode 10, written by Sarah Dollard and directed by Justin Molotnikov, and featuring the return of Joivan Wade as Rigsy; and capping off with episodes 11 and 12, both written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay.
