About a day ago, Doctor Who’s showrunner, Steven Moffat, announced all of the remaining titles for the episodes in Series 9 as well as plot details for every story. Plenty of websites were quick to copy and paste the details from the BBC’s site, but none that I saw provided any analysis. So I wrote some. I think that provides readers with a little more value, right?
The full article is posted up on WhatCulture.com, but here’s a brief excerpt and a link you can easily follow to read the rest of it. Given the nature of the article, it contains multiple spoilers. You have been warned!
Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has finally made public the titles of every episode of Series 9. Not only that, he’s released story summaries and quotes from every episode! This article not only brings you every word of what he’s revealed but also an in-depth analysis of what it all might mean. It’s safe to say there are a few surprises contained in this deluge of information!
On top of this heady rush of details, rumours continue to circulate that Tennant-era monsters the Judoon and Hath are set to make return appearances this year. If these whispers are true – and they’ve also been reported in several newspapers – these monsters will, in light of the newly distributed plot summaries, most likely be seen during the season’s finale. (For those of you who can’t quite recall the Hath, they were the fish people with the water masks in Series 4’s The Doctor’s Daughter.)
Even though Series 9 will begin in only a few days time, much of the season is obviously still weeks away. (So there’s still plenty of time left to speculate wildly!) I don’t know about other fans, but I can barely wait to see this season’s stories. So, let’s begin this deep dive into what’s in store over the course of the next three months.

Oh, and the official prequel to Series 9, The Doctor’s Meditation will be shown at cinemas from today. Can’t wait to see it!
