New ‘Doctor Who’ season will continue to ‘reflect the modern world’

Posted Filed under

Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi has revealed that the show’s next season will be exploring more real-world issues.

Last year’s season looked at extremism in ‘The Zygon Invasion’ and ‘The Zygon Inversion’, while ‘Face the Raven’ featured an alien refugee camp.

Season 10 is expected to begin filming in Cardiff next month.

Capaldi told LaLata TV: “We began to reflect the modern world [in Season 9], I think possibly we’ll see more of that in the new season which we’re about to start making when I go home.”

He added: “I think that’s quite interesting when the show reflects the changing state of planet Earth as it is in 2016.”

Capaldi also recently hinted that Season 10 will be “very action-packed” with “a lot of space exploration, and a lot of excitement and drama.”
