New “Doctor Who” Season Has A Three-Parter

Since its return in 2005, “Doctor Who” has stuck with various storytelling formats from seasons entirely of standalone episodes to the most recent one boasting all two-parters.

Now comes word that star Peter Capaldi and executive producer Steven Moffat’s final season will boast the first three-parter of the new era. To be fair there has been several unofficial three-parters (mainly a standalone episode tying into an official two-parter) including the third season and fourth season finales, and 2013’s trio of ‘Of the Doctor’ episodes.

Moffat, Peter Harness and Toby Whithouse are penning the three episodes respectively, with a new villain known as The Monks serving as the key antagonist across several episodes. The upcoming tenth season kicks off next month with the three parter to air from May 20th-June 3rd.
