TIME HAS COME TO SAY GOODBYE, DOCTOR
















The highly anticipated Season Finale of Doctor Who airs on BBC America, Saturday, July 1 at 7:30pm(CST)  The emotinally charged two-part show stopper stars Actor Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor, Pearl Mackie as Bill, Matt Lucas as Nardole, Michelle Gozez as Missy and John Simm as The Master.


Part one of the finale, titled World Enough and Time, airs Saturday June 24 with Part two, The Doctor Falls, follows a week later at the slightly earlier time.


What happens in the Doctor Who finale?

The 12th Doctor’s swan-song kicks off this week with part one of the finale.  Missy joins the TARDIS team for the first time since turning “good”, as friendship drives the Doctor to make the rashest decision of his 13 lives.


Trapped on a giant spaceship that is hurtling towards a black hole, he witnesses the death of a friend he vowed to protect.  For once, time is the Time Lord’s enemy as each passing seconds leads to impending doom.  World Enough and Time features the return of the Mondasian Cybermen, who have not appeared on the show for 50 years.  It also brings back John Simm as The Master for the first time since 2010’s The End of Time.


Details on part two are scarce, with the official synopsis giving little away.  It reads: “The Doctor makes a final stand against an army of Cybermen to protect a tiny band of humans from destruction.”


Following the finale, Peter Capaldi will make one final appearance as the Doctor in this year’s Christmas special.  Capaldi has said that his regeneration is “complicated”, and it is widely rumoured that the process will begin during the season 10 finale.


Showrunner Steven Moffat will also bow out after the festive edition, with Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall set to take his place.  It is not yet known whether Bill (Pearl Mackie) or Nardole (Matt Lucas) will return for season 11, nor who will replace Capaldi as the Doctor.  Michelle Gomez has confirmed that she will step down as Missy, telling Radio Times: “My pals are going so I’m going.”
