For Doctor Who fans, it’s a tough old year. With no new episodes until the 2016 Christmas special, it’s a long wait until Peter Capaldi’s next adventure in the Tardis.
But there’s good news. Today marked the very first read-through for series 10 and guess who was in attendance?

Yup, that’s right – Pearl Mackie aka Bill aka the Doctor’s brand new companion, filling Jenna Coleman’s spot in the Tardis for a batch of brand new episodes.
With the new series expected to air in spring 2017, it looks like filming is about to kick off as Matt Lucas rejoins the cast after introducing his character Nardole in last year’s Christmas special.
Today also brought us the news that Doctor Foster writer Mike Bartlett will pen an episode of the new series, as will Sarah Dollard who is returning to the series after writing Jenna Coleman’s exit Face the Raven and was present during today’s read-through.
