Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman have been seen filming in Tenerife, a member of the Canary Islands. The filming is speculated to be for the two-part season 9 opener, ‘The Magician’s Apprentice’ and ‘The Witch’s Familiar’, which has been written by long-time showrunner, Steven Moffat. Moffat has teamed up with director Hettie MacDonald, who directed his critically acclaimed David Tennant episode, ‘Blink’, which won a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form in 2008.
Not only does the story line look like it is in good hands, fan favourites Michelle Gomez and Jemma Redgrave (Missy and Kate Steward of UNIT respectively) are to return. Season 9 is said to be released in Autumn of 2015.
