Looking at a barren landscape we see the Doctor leaving the Tardis in BBC’s first promo for the show’s ninth series.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly,Peter Capaldi described the scene as “the Docor is about to make a mistake that has cataclysmic repercussions.”
Prior to recent rumours fans have interpreted his description as the Doctor deciding whether to murder Davros (Creator of the Daleks) as a child and the barren landscape is a Skaro battlefield. Yet others believe it to be Pompeii with the steam/mist coming from the volcano Vesuvius wich was last seen in 2007 in “The fires of Pompeii” which starred Peter Capaldi as Caecilius. Despite many filming pictures, facts about the two-part opener “The Magician’s Apprentice”/”The Witch’s Familiar” have been kept under wraps. With the Doctor Who pannel on their way to San Diego Comic Con next week Whovians can look forward to many news and previews for the new series.
Doctor Who returns later this Summer with guest stars including Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) and Paul Kaye (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell)
