Every Doctor Who Series 10 Episode Title Confirmed!

There’s always a thrill of excitement when a new batch of episode titles appear out of the void. 12 shiny new episodes are on their way, and the BBC has confirmed the title for all of Series 10.

These are expected to air between 15th April and 1st July; fingers crossed no live event gets in the way. Like the Eurovision Song Contest in May, for instance. Somebody cancel it, just in case.

Peter Capaldi is due to appear in all stories in Series 10 alongside Pearl Mackie, while Matt Lucas’ Nardole will star in most but not all. Here’s the full line-up:

  1. The Pilot. Writer: Steven Moffat; Director: Lawrence Gough.
  2. Smile. Writer: Frank Cottrell-Boyce; Director: Lawrence Gough.
  3. Thin Ice. Writer: Sarah Dollard; Director: Bill Anderson.
  4. Knock Knock. Writer: Mike Bartlett; Director: Bill Anderson.
  5. Oxygen. Writer: Jamie Mathieson; Director: Charles Palmer.
  6. Extremis. Writer: Steven Moffat; Director: Daniel Nettheim.
  7. The Pyramid at the End of the World. Writer: Peter Harness; Director: Daniel Nettheim.
  8. The Lie of the Land. Writer: Toby Whithouse; Director: Wayne Yip.
  9. The Empress of Mars. Writer: Mark Gatiss; Director: Wayne Yip.
  10. The Eaters of Light. Writer: Rona Munro; Director: Charles Palmer.
  11. World Enough and Time. Writer: Steven Moffat; Director: Rachel Talalay.
  12. The Doctor Falls. Writer: Steven Moffat; Director: Rachel Talalay.

Just imagine them all lined up on your shelf in Classic Who DVD style. Lovely.

A few very intriguing names there, but perhaps none more so than World Enough and Time. Whatever could that mean?! I guess we’ll soon find out…

Doctor Who Series 10 starts this weekend on BBC One. Finally, we can say that: this weekend.

  • Dr. Moo (ᵖᶦˡᵒᵗᶦⁿᵍ ᵗʰᵉ ᵗᵃʳᵈᶦˢ)

    Shame that both Thin Ice and World Enough & Time are titles that already exist within Doctor Who (by Marc Platt and James Goss respectively).

    • TimeChaser

      I was wondering about that? Perhaps adaptations? Just repeating titles would be boring.

  • Ranger

    I’ve always loved Marvell’s poem To His Coy Mistress from which World Enough and Time comes. If you look past the surface of a man trying to sweet-talk a woman into bed, it is a poem full of aching melancholy, pain and loss, such beautiful language. I wonder if the title of the episode is hinting at a story of loss?

  • The Lazy Womble

    “The Doctor Falls”- is this how he regenerates? He stubs his toe? Echoes of the 6 to 7 regeneration…

    • TimeChaser

      Perhaps he slips in the shower?

  • bar “B.I.”O.

    The Doctor Falls made me think of Gallifrey falls no more. As well as stations of the cross – but it’s Holy Week so that’s probably coincidence.

    • The Lazy Womble

      The War. I did once, but I think I got away with it.

    • The Lazy Womble

      Possibly an echo of “A Good Man Goes To War”?

  • TimeChaser

    Perhaps on of the most intriguing and cool list of episode titles that has ever been/was/will be. Can’t wait for this weekend?
