Series 10, episode 1: The pilot

A new series has started last night, a new companion has been introduced, the TARDIS is once again ”bigger on the inside” (everyone’s favorite shout when they first enter the blue box). And you don’t have to see the Doctor to enjoy the show: the way Bill Pots (Pearl Mackie) enter is simple and clear.

It’s not a complex episode (as others), the action is quite simple (the Doctor and Bill meet an alien creature and run away from it), but it works just fine if you consider it an introduction to something that’s going to end in an epic way: this is Steven Moffat’s last season as a producer and Peter Capaldi’s last season as the Doctor. Michelle Gomez and John Simms return as Missy / Master, but that’s another chapter of the story.

The story of the first episode was written by Steven Moffat. With Peter Capaldi (the Doctor), Pearl Mackie (Bill Pots), Matt Lucas (Nardole), David Olawale Ayinde (Edwardian Working Class), Nicholas Briggs (Dalek), Jennifer Hennessy (Moira), Stephanie Hyam (Heather).

In the next episode The Doctor and Bill travel to one of Earth’s first colonies in Smile.

The Future Needs Us – Concept for Doctor Who Series 10 Launch Trailer

Lucy Crewe is a Doctor Who fan and animator. She has spent a good deal of the year 2016 working on a cartoon trailer for Season 10. The result is really good, particularly the likenesses of both the Doctor and Bill:

Her animation skills and intuition improved vastly over the last months and she was able to free up her mind space, playing to her strengths to design a speculative campaign that will tie in with season 10 next spring.

On-location set visits and social events gave her that push to develop an idea into something special. Live action reference was used for most shots.
