Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a last-minute rescue from the oncoming forces of interstellar tedium, drawn from a week’s worth of Whovian social media.

And as Season 10 is almost upon us (April 15!), we begin this week with an amazing fan-made trailer that Time Lass Creations has created, including Mondassian Cybermen that are every bit as creepy as the real thing:

Elsewhere, the last minute preparations for Season 10’s opening episode “The Pilot” are in full flow. Filming is over:

Teasers are circulating:

• Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat had stern words for cyberbullies:

• The Doctor and new pals:

• The Doctor’s new samurai friend:

• Vintage fan art:
