Buenas Tardis, Doctor Who fans! The time-travelling British sci-fi series returns for its 10th season tonight on Space. This will he Peter Capaldi's final run as the Doctor, as well as the final season led by writer and executive producer Steven Moffat.

"They asked me to stay on. And I love this show. But I began to get worried about my capacity to deliver my best work," Capaldi told the New York Times this week.

In the Season 10 premiere, titled The Pilot, the Doctor meets new companion Bill Potts, played by Pearl Mackie. Bill is anew character in the show's lore and, unlike some previous companions, she doesn't have much experience with the Doctor's world. Also this season, Matt Lucas will return as Nardole.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Mackie described Bill as "quite chatty, a bit mouthy ... She questions things that haven't been questioned in a really long time, which is fun." Bill will also be openly gay.

Centred on a time lord who zips across the universe with various sidekicks, Doctor Who debuted on BBC One in 1963 and ran until 1989. It found new life in 2005, and in 2013, the show's 50th-anniversary special broke viewing records worldwide. Capaldi is the 12th actor to play the lead character; this is his second season in the role.

Space will air a Season 9 marathon today leading up to the Season 10 premiere. Fans can also stream the first nine seasons of the rebooted show on CraveTV.
