Showrunner Steven Moffat said: “The last time the Doctor saw her, she was a ghost. The first time he met her, she died. So how can he be seeing her again? As ever, with the most complicated relationship in the universe, it’s a matter of time …”
Doctor Who returns for its new season on Saturday, Sept. 19 at 9/8c on BBC America, and the Christmas special will air on Christmas Day.
