Doctor Who returns this weekend for the tenth season of the program since it’s most recent revival, featuring Peter Capaldi in his final season as The Doctor; newcomer Pearl Mackie as his newest companion, Bill; and veteran of the two most recent Doctor Who Christmas episodes, Matt Lucas, as Nardole. This is also showrunner Steven Moffat’s final season on Doctor Who before handing over the reins (and a newly-regenerated Doctor) to the experienced and capable Chris Chibnall.
Premiering on the same night is Class, the latest Doctor Who spinoff, which takes place at Coal Hill School, a frequent set piece for the latter program. Class premiered in the fall of 2016 on BBC Three and is making it’s U.S. debut alongside the season premier of Doctor Who.
Whovians will want to check out Doctor Who and Class when they air this Saturday, April 15, on BBC America. In the meantime, you can get caught up with the Doctor by tuning in to the Doctor Who marathon on BBC America, which is playing now and lasts right into the new episode this Saturday evening.
