The series premiere of Doctor Who Series 9 has been revealed as ‘The Magician’s Apprentice‘. The episode will be written by Steven Moffat.
‘The Magician’s Apprentice‘ sounds fun and whimsical enough, but we also can’t help but wonder: if the magician ends up being the Doctor then who will be the apprentice? A new companion? And in that case, what will happen to the magician’s current apprentice Clara Oswald? Is this year’s special Last Christmas going to set up Jenna Coleman’s exit from the show? So many questions!
Doctor Who returns on Christmas Day at 6.15 on BBC One. You can buy Doctor Who: The Complete Series 8 on DVD for £34.99 from Amazon.co.uk. Read about the Doctor Who Christmas special in the new issue of SciFiNow.
