Looks like we have to wait for a long time for the next Doctor Who series as filming will only start this May. Oh well...at least we have David Tennant and Catherine Tate reprising their roles as the BBC TV series’ Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble to keep us entertained! .

Yes it’s true! Tennant and Tate reunite in the Tardis for a series of brand new audio dramas for Big Finish. The first trailer for the three episodes: Time Reaver, Technophobia, and Death and the Queen can be viewed here.
The Tenth Doctor and Donna will fight robots in the spaceport Calibris, discover the “dark” secret of the London Technology museum, and confront a skeleton army in their new series of adventures. Below is an audio clip to get you excited on the Tenth Doctor Adventures: Volume 1 coming this May.
Meanwhile, current Doctor, Peter Capaldi, may appear in the 8-episode Doctor Who spin-off series, Class, penned by award-winning author Patrick Ness. The series is set to debut online on BBC 3 and will air later on BBC1 or BBC3.

Capaldi’s appearance is expected as the series is set in fictional London school, Coal Hill in Shoreditch – which is regularly featured in the Doctor Who episodes. Clara Oswald, the beloved Doctor’s companion, was seen in the 50th anniversary special, The Day ofthe Doctor, teaching in the school.
The Guardian wrote that Steven Moffat - outgoing Doctor Who TV series showrunner and executive producer of Class - had described it as “growing up in Britain, but with monsters”. Patrick Ness has brilliantly “documented the dark and exhilarating world of the teenager,” Moffat added.
The final series for Doctor Who with Moffat as showrunner will begin May this year but Jenna Coleman’s replacement is not yet casted as auditions have not started.
