Doctor Who Series 9 premieres this Saturday

Ahead of the episode’s premiere this Saturday, BBC One has released 20 photos from the Doctor Who Series 9 premiere which you can check out in the gallery below. Titled “The Magician’s Apprentice,” the episode is officially described as follows:

“Where is the Doctor? When the skies of Earth are frozen by a mysterious alien force, Clara needs her friend. But where is the Doctor, and what is he hiding from? As past deeds come back to haunt him, old enemies will come face-to-face, and for the Doctor and Clara survival seems impossible…”

Written by Steven Moffat and directed by Hettie Macdonald, the episode sees the return of Michelle Gomez as Missy.

“Everybody hide – Michelle Gomez as Missy was an instant hit last year, so she’s straight back to plague the Doctor and Clara in the series opener. But what brings her back into their lives is the last thing they’d expect,” Moffat teased about her return.

Doctor Who Series 9 will premiere on September 19. The series stars Peter Capaldi as The Doctor with Jenna Coleman as Clara.
