Doctor Who season finale livestream: Watch “The Doctor Falls” online


The Doctor Who season 10 finale is here, and we all need to prepare our emotions. Here’s all the info you need to watch “The Doctor Falls” online.

Reminder: If you need a quick refresher on all things Doctor Who from last week, our Culturess review of “World Enough and Time” is right this way.

Though many (most?) of us are probably still in denial about this fact, Doctor Who season 10 comes to a close this weekend. And no one knows what to expect, really, save for the fact that it’s a Steven Moffat finale. Which we all know means lots of twists, and probably a lot of tears.

The episode, entitled “The Doctor Falls”, does possess kind of a lot to work with on that front. There are two versions of the Master running around, Bill’s a Cyberman now, and, if the cold open to last week’s episode is anything to go by, the Doctor’s about to regenerate. Everything is basically turned up to eleven, stress-wise, right now.

If you hoped the official episode synopsis might provide some clue about what to expect, well, that’s definitely not the case.

"The Doctor makes a final stand against an army of Cybermen to protect a tiny band of humans from destruction."

Whatever’s happening, though, we’ll have some extra time to see it. The season 10 finale is actually an extended episode and will run for 60 minutes, instead of the show’s usual 40. As a result BBC America will even be airing the show a little earlier than usual, at 8:30pm. (Check your DVR settings!)

Watch the trailer for “The Doctor Falls” for yourself:

For reasons that seem fairly obvious, BBC America didn’t release a preview clip this week. With so much going on, it stands to reason they didn’t want to risk releasing even a scene that might give something away.

But they did release a clip with stars Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie introducing the finale. And it’s actually kind of cute, even if it doesn’t tell us much. (Or, maybe I’m just getting really emotional about Capaldi’s impending departure. Who can say?)
