In addition to the feature content, audiences will enjoy the premiere episode of the “Doctor Who” spin-off series “Class,” featuring a guest appearance by the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi, and the never-before-seen bonus feature “Becoming the Companion,” in which fans will travel with new companion Pearl Mackie from the London stage through the doors of the TARDIS to a once-in-a-lifetime role or, as Mackie says, “the most insane thing that’s ever happened to me.” The bonus feature includes exclusive interviews with Mackie, Capaldi, and showrunner Steven Moffat and is narrated by Ingrid Oliver.

Tickets for the “Doctor Who” Season 10 premiere can be purchased online by visiting or at participating theater box offices.

Season 10 will see Peter Capaldi embark on his thrilling final series as the 12th Doctor as well as the introduction of brand new companion Pearl Mackie as Bill Potts and the return of alien companion Matt Lucas as Nardole.
