Watch this Doctor Who Season 9 prologue and get ready for the premiere

We are just a few days, DAYS, away from the new Doctor Who season 9 premiere. Earlier this summer the BBC released the first official Doctor Who Season 9 Trailer but today the network released an exciting new prologue to the event.

As most Whovians know, Doctor Who returns to BBC AMERICA on Saturday, September 19th, this will be the ninth season for the show and the second-season with Peter Capaldi.

Once again, and probably for the last time, the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is joined by Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) for time travel on a cinematic scale. Having the time of their lives, the pair meet new and old monsters, and go on a journey that takes them to deadly alien planets, creepy underwater bases, Vikings villages, a global Zygon uprising, and leads them through hidden alien dens, to the very end of time itself.

Previously announced and taking up a guest role in the new season will be young new talent Maisie Williams, having already achieved global success for her role as Arya Stark in the fantasy drama series Game of Thrones. Michelle Gomez (Missy) returns to plague the Doctor and Clara in the season opener, and UNIT are back with Jemma Redgrave and Ingrid Oliver (Osgood) returning to season nine following their popular entrance in season eight. Also confirmed as guest cast in the new series are Rebecca Front, Rufus Hound, Paul Kaye, Joivan Wade and Sophie Stone.

The show’s ninth season has been written by lead writer Steven Moffat, Toby Whithouse, Jamie Mathieson, Peter Harness, Mark Gatiss, and new writers to Doctor Who – Sarah Dollard and Catherine Tregenna; directed by Hettie Macdonald, Daniel O’Hara, Ed Bazalgette, Daniel Nettheim, Justin Molotnikov, Rachel Talalay; and produced by Tracie Simpson, Derek Ritchie, Nikki Wilson and Peter Bennett.

The last season of Doctor Who was BBC AMERICA’S highest rated season ever on the channel and season eight is available now on BBC AMERICA On Demand and Amazon Video, as well as on Blu-Ray/DVD.
