Below is the brand new trailer for Doctor Who series 9, The Magician’s Apprentice.
“Where is the Doctor? When the skies of Earth are frozen by a mysterious alien force, Clara needs her friend. But where is the Doctor, and what is he hiding from?
As past deeds come back to haunt him, old enemies will come face-to-face, and for the Doctor and Clara survival seems impossible.”
The Magician’s Apprentice airs on September 19 on BBC One.
It’s now a well known fact that both David Tennant and former Doctor Who show runner Russell T Davies are in Cardiff. We just don’t know why.
Online speculation has been rife that Tennant is filming for the series 9 finale.
The rumour is that the series will culminate with the Twelfth Doctor returning to Pompeii and finding out just why he has that face. In the first promo picture for series 9, Pompeii is in the background of the right hand side.
The current show runner Steven Moffat has said that will be addressed this series.
A BBC source told us:
“I can confirm that David Tennant has been in the BBC Roath Lock studios twice this week. The number of security has also been increased for next week. So something is happening.”
Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean David Tennant is actually appearing in an episode. Former Doctor Who executives, Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner have just launched Bad Wolf Productions, which is based in Cardiff. It’s entirely possible that both Tennant and Davies are there to talk about working on a new unrelated show. Why wouldn’t they pop in the Doctor Who set whilst in town?

The BBC confirmed today that fan favourite Jemma Redgrave will be reprising her role as Kate Stewart, in Episodes 7 and 8 of series 9 of Doctor Who.
Fans had worried that future appearances in Doctor Who might be off the cards, due to Kate Stewart being given her on audio Spin-Off with Big Finish.
In the video below Redgrave discusses her involvement in the upcoming series.
An airdate has yet to be announced, but the series is expected to air on August 29th.
Unit-Extinction is due for release later in the year.
