DOCTOR WHO Series 10 Premiere in Cinemas

{All images used courtesy BBC America.}

It’s time to meet the new companion. The 10th season of Doctor Who will be premiering on BBC America on April 15. In celebration of the Time Lord gracing our screens once more, Fathom Events will be screening the episode in cinemas on April 17 and 19.

This will will be Peter Capaldi’s last series as the Doctor, as well as the last with Steven Moffat as showrunner. As fans know, Chris Chibnall will be taking over for the show for the 11th series. Chibnall is no stranger to Who: he wrote several episodes of the series between series 3 and 7 and was the head writer of Torchwood for series 1 and 2. Chibnall is still searching for Capaldi’s successor.

As for the series 10 premiere, we’ll also see the return of Matt Lucas as Nardole, as well as the first appearance of the new companion, Bill (Pearl Mackie). We know very little of the new companion, although there are some hints in the trailer. (I personally see more than a casual similarity to Classic Who companion Ace.)

But have no fear: if you attend the Fathom Event screening, there are some special features. One is the feature Becoming the Companion, which follows Mackie from the London stage through the TARDIS, and includes exclusive interviews with Mackie, Capaldi, and Moffat.

Are we ready to go to Class?

Additionally, the cinema screening will also include the first episode of the new spinoff Class, set to premiere on BBC America on April 15 as well. This first episode includes a guest appearance as Capaldi as the Doctor. Class, for those who aren’t familiar, focuses on five students at the somewhat infamous Coal Hill Academy. The show premiered on BBC in December of 2016, and the tone is somewhat between the kid-friendly Sarah Jane Adventures and the more adult Torchwood.

If you buy the tickets through Atom Tickets, you will receive three free Doctor Who digital comic books from Titan Comics and ComiXology, delivered to purchasing e-mail address on event date. For more information, including a list of theaters, visit the Fathom Events website.
