Season 9 of Doctor Who will include classic Doctor Who aliens such as the Daleks and Zygons, while also giving viewers some fun twists with a highway man, Vikings, ghosts, mercenary robots, creatures with eyes on their hands, and even a Dragon! It has also been reported that the Judoon and the Hath from The Doctor’s Daughter will also make a cameo. In an interview Peter Capaldi noted “There is an epic sweep to this season and I think the villains and monsters reflect that. Great new ones, brilliant old ones, and some very scary creatures looming in stories with real emotional ambitions.”
Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman will return as the Doctor and his companion Clara Oswald. Michelle Gomez returns as the formidable Master/Missy. Jemma Redgrave will return as UNIT Chief Scientific Officer Kate Lethbridge-Stewart. Despite her death in Season 8, Osgood (Ingrid Oliver) will be coming back for episodes 7 and 8. Joivan Wade who played the charming Rigsy in the episode Flatline in the 10th episode. Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones will guest star in episodes 5 and 6 of Season 9.
Season 9 of Doctor Who premieres on September 19th with “The Magician’s Apprentice.” Can’t wait for Doctor Who to return? Check out the trailers for Season 9 of Doctor Who.
I’ve always been a peripheral, ” sometimes an episode” type fan until last season. I watched the entire season. It wasn’t as complicated to understand as I’d been lead to believe and I really enjoyed it. Mostly I just like Capaldi. I think I’ll watch all of season nine too and kind of looking forward to it.
Incidentally, I introduced my ten year old niece to the Weeping Angels episode and she was hooked. She wanted to watch it again and we had a good time parsing and discussing the episode. I have a feeling I’ve created two monsters, now.

The weeping angels episode, “Blink” is also one of my favs. It’s so scary!
