BBC America released a trailer today for the upcoming tenth season of Doctor Who featuring new companion Bill — played by Pearl Mackie — and her understanding of the Doctor.
As always in the new series, the key detail about the Time Lord is this: “He says he’s a man of peace, but he walks in war.” It appears that dichotomy within the character will continued to be explored in the new season even as lead actor Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat prepare the series for a new Doctor and a new head writer.
Meanwhile, Bill’s trepidation that the Doctor might be the “most dangerous man in the universe,” has not stopped her from joining Nardole as the latest in a long line of traveling companions.
“I’m having the time of my life,” she says late in the trailer, “and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.” A sentiment fans of the series will no doubt sympathize with. But will she continue to travel with him when he regenerates at the end of the year?
Doctor Who‘s tenth season debuts on BBC America on April 15th.
