3. Maisie Williams is featured in the new trailer and we’re dying to know who she is.

She can be seen saying to the Doctor: “What took you so long, old man?” All we know about her role is what Peter Capaldi himself has said, describing it as "cosmic".

4. The Doctor and Clara’s relationship has evolved.

Speaking at the panel, Jenna said: "There’s a freedom, I think. It's our glory years. It's really adrenaline-fuelled. It's all about pushing the adventure right up to the edge."

5. There will be Vikings.
