Doctor Who

In Peter Capaldi’s second season as the Doctor, the series sees the Doctor and Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) going on a journey that takes them to deadly alien planets, creepy underwater bases, Viking villages, a global Zygon uprising, and through hidden alien dens, to the very end of time itself. Doctor Who returns to BBC America with a two-part season premiere, “The Magician’s Apprentice” (Sept. 19 at 9pm ET/PT) and “The Witch’s Familiar” (Sept. 26 at 9pm ET/PT), written by showrunner Steven Moffat. In “The Magician’s Apprentice,” Clara needs her friend when the skies of Earth are frozen by a mysterious alien force. 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. Then in “The Witch’s Familiar,” the Doctor is trapped and alone in a terrifying Dalek city. Also this season, the Doctor will come face-to-face with Missy (Michelle Gomez), deadly mercenaries called the Mire, terrifying ghosts and more. Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) also has a guest role in the new season.
