Peter Capaldi’s Doctor is returning to our screens once again, and for those of you who can’t stand the hype, there is a new teaser for season 9 to tide you over.
When speaking on the two-part premiere, Capaldi revealed that the Doctor is “about to make a mistake that has cataclysmic repercussions,” and he’s “running from something, that even he does not yet understand.”
And it seems, judging from the synopsis of the premiere, that the Doctor is hiding from whatever trouble he has gotten himself into.
“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.”
It seems, as well, that old favourities the Daleks will be making a return. Some fans, including myself, feel that both the Daleks and the Cybermen are overused in the most recent series of the reboot, but there’s no denying they always make interesting episodes.
The Daleks are, after all, responsible for one of my favourite lines.
You can watch the teaser for the episode, which premieres on September 19, below.
