'Doctor Who': Peter Capaldi Teases The Doctor Is About To 'Make A Cataclysmic Mistake'

In just four weeks, Doctor Who will return to TV, and Whovians can't wait for more of the adventures the Doctor and his companion, Clara, will experience in series 9. BBC America has released new photos from the upcoming premiere, which will be split into two parts titled "The Magician's Apprentice" and "The Witch's Familiar."

The photos tease the return of Missy and Kate, and as an added teaser, Peter Capaldi described an ominous-sounding event that will be coming up. Capaldi, who portrays the current incarnation of the Doctor, said of the photo in the upper left "shows the Doctor about to make a mistake that has cataclysmic repercussions." Sounds like an exciting season of Doctor Who is about to begin!

In regards to his Doctor Who character, Peter Capaldi described the motivation and emotions behind the Doctor's actions, complimenting his co-star, Jenna Coleman, in the process.

"He's in pursuit of joy and grabbing every thrill that he can along the way. But I sense him running from something, that even he does not yet understand. They've suddenly realized that they are the most fortunate people in all of time and space and are hell-bent on adventure. Jenna continues to deliver a beautifully nuanced, complex, and funny performance that marks her out as one of the best companions ever."

Series 8 of Doctor Who had Whovians divided over Peter Capaldi's take on the Doctor. Some fans liked it while other fans didn't warm up to him. Of course the beginning and ending of every season of Doctor Who brings out Whovians speculating on whether this season will be the last for the Doctor and his companion. Capaldi himself has already teased series 9 as being his last. Do you think it will be?

Doctor Who returns Saturday September 19 on BBC One.
