Britain’s iconic pop culture series, “Doctor Who,” is already back in production for their 10th season. New companion Bill is ready to take on her new role with brand new sneak peeks coming from actress Pearl Mackie.
“It’s my first day on location!” Mackie exclaimed on the video. “It’s mad, it’s really exciting. There’s loads of fans,” she added.
“Look, it’s snowing in June,” she continued providing a tour of the location.
Back in April, it was revealed that Mackie will be the newest assistant for the Time Lord (Peter Capaldi) following Clara Oswald’s (Jenna Coleman) devastating death back in season 9. Mackie’s addition has been welcomed by fans, so far, and many are already looking forward to the upcoming installment of the show.
Bill will bring a fresh, new perspective to “Doctor Who.” Unlike Clara, who somehow knew what was going on in the world of the Twelfth Doctor, the newcomer is said to have limited knowledge regarding the situation which can be very interesting, narrative-wise.
Speaking of Clara, there are rumors that loyal fans may be able to see her back in the show. Capaldi himself made the slip during his stint at the Awesome Con in Washington D.C. earlier this month.
“I’m not sure how successfully Clara was able to wipe his mind,” Capaldi said, teasing the crowd with Coleman just beside him. “I just… I was about to tell you something I can’t tell you.”
The actor then proceeded to give some additional information after being pressed by the attendees. He revealed that the Twelfth Doctor will be reunited with Clara in an undisclosed scene.
“I just shot something that Clara was still there in,” he shared to the delight of the fans.
“Doctor Who” season 10 has yet to have a specific air date but will likely return in 2017. Before that, fans can expect the Doctor in his annual Christmas special airing on Dec. 25 on BBC.
