Season chronology
Series 10 of Doctor Who began filming on 5 January 2017, for an airdate on 16th September 2017. The regular series consisted of 12 episodes. This was Peter Capaldi's third series as the Twelfth Doctor and the debut of new companion Bobby Colson played by Nico Mirallegro, and later Gabriella Redfield played by Meganne Young.

The series saw Peter Capaldi's Twelfth Doctor maintain the new outfit seen in Series 9, wearing a red velvet jacket with a white shirt and black trousers. The series also featured the continuation of the Doctor wearing t-shirts in place of his shirt, often with a pair of plaid trousers. The series also featured the brand new, redesigned sonic screwdriver.

In May at a convention, Michelle Gomez confirmed she would be returning as Missy, the latest incarnation of the Master, in Series 10. On the 30th March BBC revealed the title of two episodes; Jamie Mathieson and Steven Moffat's episode and Mark Gatiss' episode. The two episodes were revealed to be two linked episodes rather than a conventional two-parter, being set in two time periods, during World War I and the 19th century, respectively.

A question that had been brought up in the Series 9 episode Before the Flood was the identity of The Minister of War, who was mentioned by Alice O'Donnell when listing major events that happened on Earth after 1980. In DWM Steven Moffat confirmed that the truth would be discovered.

Peter Harness revealed that his two-part story, Episodes 7 & 8, featuring the Mondasians, would have themes related to Genesis of the Daleks and would be a prequel to The Tenth Planet.
