Doctor Who Series Nine Stunning New Image

Doctor Who returns to BBC One on Saturday, 19 September and this stunning new image gives us a sense of the action and adventure that series 9 will deliver.

It shows the world’s greatest heroes in explosive form, dashing from danger but – knowing those two – running headlong into more trouble!

      I’ve been watching almost 10 and a half years, but I agree wholeheartedly with your statement.

      Although it’s only a minor complaint as we still have Big Finish and, for us ‘newbies’, a growing classic DVD collection of our own to keep us going.

      I like it to although I’ve only been watching it a short time

    I firmly believe that a true doctor who fan would never come out with a negative comment about anything and just love Doctor Who, embrace every new regeneration and accept them into their hearts as if they have always been there and just everything they see.

    The people who come out with negative feed back do not have the right to call themselves a Whovian and should be ashamed of themselves.

      I absolutely hate saying this about one of my favorite shows of all time but doctor who is starting to decrease popularity wise it just took a survey of my neighborhood yesterday.

    • the astronaut of death

      August 11th, 2015 - 10:15am

      I dont the show is decreasing….. The viewing figures ar about the same as they’ve been since 2005. Your survey can’t determined if the popularity of doctor who is decreasing. It might be in your neighbourhood but not the world.

    • Capaldi Fan

      Thats total rubbish, series 8 had an increse in viewing figures from the Matt Smith episodes, bringing in Capaldi has improved Doctor Who. I do wish people would get their facts straight before they slag of the programme.

    What happened


      August 6th, 2015 - 7:06am

      Bad Wolf happened . . and then there was the Battle of Canary Wharf . . followed by the year the Master ruled the Earth which then never happened and became known as the year that never was . . then there was Davros and his mighty new Dalek Empire who created the reality bomb, and failed . . then there was a bit of a brief interlude with the 10th Doctor having the odd adventure before regenerating after defeating Rassilon and the Time Lord’s by sending them back into hell . . then there was crack in the skin of the universe and the Pandorica opening . . then there was that bizzare time the Doctor sort off got married to the Doctor . . then the Doctor lost Amy and Rory to a Weeping Angel . . then the Doctor had his lives saved thanks to Clara going into his time stream . . then he saved Gallifrey and with help from his other selves . . then ended up regenerating on Trenzalore after a thousand years defending the planet . . and finally for the most recent of events delt with a crazy old bat who believes she’s the Master [ha, yeah right Miss Nutty Bar :D] and Earth’s dead brought back as Cybermen who then decided to go up on flames like Fireworks . .

      And now I need a lie down. Hope I explained everything of the last 10 years . . more or less . . before series 9 starts next month πŸ™‚

      You forgot the endless timey wimey attempts to kill the doctor by a rogue church military


      August 8th, 2015 - 6:59am

      Knights of Acardia – No, I’m just referring to finales.

      I wish people would stop tearing the series to bits and just watch it for what it is, good entertainment. I have watched doctor who since the Jon Pertwee era and its great that its back and when it returned in 2005 it has just got better.

    Booboo, I would like to have this as the wallpaper on my phone. Will i get into any copyright problems if i do so?

    I thought it would be better to ask before i do so

    • booboo

      August 5th, 2015 - 10:15am

      they have made it available for wallpaper so no

      realistically anyone is only likely to get into trouble if they use it to make money or try to pass it off as their own

    • collector

      August 5th, 2015 - 11:36am

      Ok, thanks for that. Collector should have been put in the name part, dont know how to change it. Oops

    All I can say is Wow I hope this is leading up to something big for season 10. I did notice the Trousers earlier that they look the same as the 2nd dr’s ones.

    Not much I can say except that it’s a pretty cool looking promo image.

    Does it remind anybody else of a Big Finish cover?

    • Peking Homunculus

      August 4th, 2015 - 5:21pm

      Like a specific one or just generally? Cause it definitely has a similar vibe to the artwork on some of the box sets

    • Doyouhearthem?

      August 5th, 2015 - 5:00pm

      In vibe. Not a specific one, although perhaps the Doom Coalition boxsets.

    Paul Jones of the Radio Times thinks his spotted some clues hidden in the picture.

    His got an arrow pointing to the planet on the left and believes it maybe Gallifrey.

    An arrow pointing at the ‘meteorite’ below the planet on the left. He thinks it maybe a Dalek or the Tardis herself.

    Referring to the trousers worn by the Doctor in the picture.

    Talking about the Doctor wearing 5 layers of clothes in this picture.

    Referring to the look on her face in the picture.

    Paul Jones reckons Clara’s checkered dress is reflecting on the Doctor’s checkered trousers.

    Referring to the explosion behind them. Paul thinks it maybe something to do with the Time War.

    Regarding the 12th Doctor’s face and the fact that there maybe a connection between the 12th Doctor and Peter’s Pompeii character.

    If you look up Doctor Who on Google and look for news to the Radio Times, you can’t miss it.

    August 4th, 2015 - 3:26pm

    I never thought the Doctor’s fashion sense would be better than Clara’s, but there you go.

    Getting excited now!! But we need more trailers!! Last year there were loads of lottle teasers (however they were for the new Doctor) but still how hyped would we be if we got some good little teasers?!

    • Capaldi Fan

      August 14th, 2015 - 11:26am

      If you have too many trailers it near enough plays all the good stuff so there is nothing left to look forward too? no spoilers and be more patient for the series to start

    This looks really bad, I don’t no whether it’s the poses that Capaldi and Coleman are in but it looks so fake. I’ve seen better Images done by a 10 year old.

    • Nobody in particular

      August 4th, 2015 - 12:38pm

      That’s probably a bit harsh. There were some last year (Into the Dalek, for example) that I would say that about, but I was fairly impressed by this one

    • Capaldi Fan

      August 14th, 2015 - 11:28am

      No wonder your name in anonymous with a comment like that, its a brilliant image

  • MrHaloWho

    August 4th, 2015 - 11:11am

    Those outfits look horrible. Capaldi’s wearing 1970’s pyjamas, with a 1990’s American teenage boy’s t-shirt and jumper, with a crombie coat over the top. Not to mention his grandma hair.

    • Nobody in particular

      August 4th, 2015 - 12:39pm

      I thought the same when I first saw the outfit at filming, but it’s kind of grown on me since. And anyway, it’s only going to be in two episodes, so I assume there’s a reason he’s dressed more ‘down’ than the rest of the series

    • Capaldi Fan

      August 14th, 2015 - 11:33am

      Its a pair of checked trousers? why is everyone so obsessed with the outfit? it hardly gets noticed in the episodes yet people pick holes the moment they see it.

      Its really not important, its the guy inside the outfit that matters and Capaldi was born to play the Doctor

  • Doctor Stu

    August 4th, 2015 - 10:55am

    Looks very high budget which is actually what Doctor Who needs to make it great and feel amazing

    • MrHaloWho

      August 4th, 2015 - 2:44pm

      No, it’s the opposite. I think it was better in the classic series, even if the monsters were just men in furry blankets. Nowadays, the show is all force-fields, explosions and bad CGI.

    • the astronaut of death

      August 4th, 2015 - 3:02pm

      The CGI is actually pretty good…

    • Capaldi Fan

      August 14th, 2015 - 11:30am

      Well said Doctor Stu, new technology can only make Doctor Who better and more scary.

      Its hard to believe a monster covered in bubble wrap painted green can do you any harm but the modern monsters are very scary.

      Love it, and i am 44 so grew up with the old stuff, i support the new era

  • the astronaut of death

    August 4th, 2015 - 8:43am

    I love it…. It looks amazing

    I hope to get this as a poster for my wall…
