Doctor Who Series 10 Filming Starts in Two Weeks

Peter Capaldi has revealed the news we’ve all been waiting for: filming for Doctor Who Series 10 starts in just a fortnight!
The Twelfth Doctor is at the Dallas Comic Con in Texas this weekend and confirmed the news at the “Tales from the TARDIS panel, where he was joined by former companion, Jenna Coleman, and Michelle Gomez, who plays Missy – expected to return to Doctor Who in Steven Moffat’s final run of episodes as showrunner.
This will coincide with Pearl Mackie finishing her West End performance in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, based on the book of the same name by Mark Haddon. Pearl was named as the new companion, Bill, back in late April.

Capaldi’s announcement is in contrast to the Doctor Who Magazine, in its 500th issue, claiming that filming won’t begin until July. Still, it’s not a great leap forward: it’ll likely start only a week or so before July anyway.
But note that no date has been specified, and we’re not likely to find out until we see Peter and Pearl hot-trotting it around Cardiff.
Meanwhile, filming for the Doctor Who spin-off, Class continues in Wales following a brief hiatus for the cast.
