It’s less than a fortnight until Doctor Who returns (and less than a week until Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie talk series 10 at the Radio Times Television Festival) so there’s never been a better time to speculate about what’s to come in series 10.


It’s been too long since we last went on a full series of adventures in space and time, so Radio Times went behind the scenes at the BBC’s Cardiff studios to get a few visual clues about the Doctor and Bill’s adventures.

Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie and Steven Moffat are all set to appear at the Radio Times Television Festival from April 7th to 9th
