The First Details for Doctor Who Season 10 Have Arrived
It feels like it's been a very long off-season for Doctor Who fans, but after casting a new companion the BBC has finally released the first details on what's in store for Season 10. Unfortunately, that first snippet of information might not exactly be music to the ears of many Whovians, because we now know that Stephen Moffat and Frank Cottrell-Boyce will be writing the first two episodes of the season.

Fans have been growing increasingly frustrated with showrunner Moffat recently, and some have even gone as far as to sign a petition for his removal from the show, while others claim that he is "systematically destroying Doctor Who".

Luckily, there is some good news in the BBC release. After an entertaining performance as Nardole in the most recent Christmas special, Matt Lucas is reprising his role as the hapless employee of River Song.

"I'm chuffed to bits that Nardole is returning to the TARDIS for some more adventures," said Lucas. "I loved acting with Peter and I'm excited to work with Pearl.

Best of all, it looks like Lucas is going to be back on a regular basis this season. In the release, Moffat suggests that Nardole could be making a number of appearances over the course of the next season.

Opening quote
"Delighted and slightly amazed to be welcoming Matt Lucas back on to the TARDIS - and this time it's not just for Christmas, he's sticking around," said Moffat. "One of the greatest comedy talents on planet Earth is being unleashed on all of time and space."
