Check out the Doctor Who S10 Ep9 Trailer Short, which is being shown in the UK, plus our gallery of stills from the story.

Although the plot information highlights the the Doctor’s potential dilemma of humans invading it would not be the first time he has sided with the non-humans. The, wrongly named, Silurians encountered by Jon Pertwee’s Doctor come to mind.

We bet the Ice Warriors will end up having a hissy fit (joke)!

The episode, titled “Empress Of Mars”, will air Saturday June 10th 2017 on BBC America in the US and BBC One in the UK.

The Doctor, Bill and Nardole arrive on Mars, and find themselves in an impossible conflict between Ice Warriors… and Victorian soldiers.

As the Martian hive awakens around them, the Doctor faces a unique dilemma – this time the humans, not the Ice Warriors are the invaders. When Earth is invading Mars, whose side is he on?

The Doctor is played by Peter Capaldi, Bill by Pearl Mackie and Nardole by Matt Lucas.

‘Empress Of Mars’ is written by Mark Gatiss and directed by Wayne Yip.
