So, not long now, in fact as I write it is three days and two hours until season 10 and The Pilot hits our screens. I’ve not seen or nor read any spoilers. The few pre-reviews are mixed but I get the sense this is a jumping-on point (and the word pilot is relevant here) and that Pearl Mackie takes the centre stage while Capaldi’s Doctor allows events to flow.
No doubt a lot more to post after I’ve seen it; I am curious about the picture of Susan on the desk, the Pertwee-esque set-up of the TARDIS seemingly stuck on Earth (though not for long) and the official synopsis reveals little:
Two worlds collide when the Doctor meets Bill, and a chance encounter with a girl with a star in her eye leads to a terrifying chase across time and space. Bill’s mind is opened to a universe that is bigger and more exciting than she could possibly have imagined. But who is the Doctor, and what is his secret mission on Earth?
We know there will be Daleks, and the effects for the robo-girl appearing from the water look amazing. What do I want? To be entertained, and for the characters to all have a place in the story. This means not just Bill, Nardole and the Doctor but the others too.
Let’s see what Saturday brings, and remember, Rose appeared in Easter Saturday as well, and look where that led us!
