Watch The Doctor Who Season 9 Prologue Here and Now

Watch Extras Now

The good folks at BBC have a very tasty—and very cryptic—treat for all you Whovians today: an almost two-minute prologue to the show’s forthcoming ninth season premiere, titled “The Magician’s Apprentice,” which you all know goes down next Saturday, September 19 at 9e 6p.

The clip begins with the good Doctor on Planet Karn, which we haven’t been on since the 2013 mini-episode “The Night of the Doctor.” From there things get pretty mysterious, but watch for yourselves and share your own theories/predictions in the comments.

One bit of existential advice we can take away from this tease: “An enemy is just a friend you don’t really know yet.” Oh, Doctor, always so damn cynical!
