Missy and Clara having tea? The Doctor rocking the rock star look? Here are just a few of the cool pics from the Doctor Who Season 9 opening episode, "The Magician's Apprentice."

Titled "The Magician’s Apprentice," the episode was penned by showrunner Steven Moffat and sees the return of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, Jenna Coleman as his companion Clara and Michelle Gomez as Missy.

Moffat said of Missy’s return: "Everybody hide – Michelle Gomez as Missy was an instant hit last year, so she’s straight back to plague the Doctor and Clara in the series opener. But what brings her back into their lives is the last thing they’d expect."

And what no one expected was for Missy and Clara to join forces in order to search for the missing Doctor, who's rocking the rock star look hard, by the way. Guitars and shades are ALWAYS cool. Here's the episode synopsis:

"Where is the Doctor? When the skies of Earth are frozen by a mysterious alien force, Clara needs her friend. But where is the Doctor, and what is he hiding from? As past deeds come back to haunt him, old enemies will come face-to-face, and for the Doctor and Clara survival seems impossible…"

Doctor Who returns Sept. 19 on BBC One, BBC America and Space.
