In last season’s finale, The Doctor’s arch-nemesis, Missy (formerly The Master) casually killed his number one fan, Osgood. Osgood is well and truly dead, but as showrunner Steven Moffat points out, ‘…in a show about time travel, anything can happen. The brilliant Ingrid Oliver is back in action. This time though, can the Doctor trust his number one fan?”
Ingrid Oliver returns as Osgood in a two-part season nine Doctor Who adventure featuring the shapeshifting Zygons – last seen in the show’s 50th Anniversary episode, The Day of the Doctor. Follow the jump for more.

Maisie Williams – Game of Thrones’ Arya Stark – has signed to guest star on the BBC’s number one sci-fi export, Doctor Who.
Steven Moffat said of Williams’ character, “It’s not possible to say too much about who or what she’s playing, but she is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways. This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell.”
Season Nine of Doctor Who is currently shooting – new episode titles revealed today were The Girl Who Died written by Jamie Mathieson and Steven Moffat, and The Woman Who Lived by Catherine Tregenna. Sounds like a two-parter to me. For further details, follow the jump.

Capping the highest-rated season of Doctor Who on BBC America, Doctor Who: Last Christmas was a gripping episode for several reasons – including the whole ‘will Jenna stay on or will she go?’ question. Plus Santa Claus as we’ve never seen him before.
On Tuesday, February 17th, Doctor Who: Last Christmas is coming to Blu-Ray and DVD – with audio commentary tracks (for those of you who (like me) love to hear how these things were put together) and a 10-minute behind-the-scenes featurette that includes interviews with cast and crew . Follow the jump for more.

One of the two masterstrokes in the creation of Doctor Who is a machine that can take its pilot anytime in the universe (and to some points outside it), thus opening up the possibility of telling any/every kind of story imaginable. The other is the idea that when The Doctor gets too old/damaged, he can regenerate – making it possible for the show to carry on even if an actor is unable/chooses not to go on.
The eighth season of the current run of Doctor Who introduced the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) (the fourteenth if you want to be sticky about it, but for all intents and purposes the twelfth) and did something that hadn’t been done before in the show’s fifty-one year history – it gave us a hero who didn’t believe in heroes… and wasn’t even sure if he was a good man. The result was an almost intoxicatingly odd season.

On December 25th, BBC America will premiere The Doctor Who Christmas Special: Last Christmas (9/7C). If you didn’t already have reason enough to watch after Peter Capaldi totally own the role of the angry-eyebrowed Doctor through season eight, BBC America has twelve reasons – matching the twelve days of Christmas (was that too on the nose?) – that make perfect sense to me.
Check them out on the other side of the jump.
