Doctor Who returns on New Year’s Day

December 3rd, 2019 by Marc Comments

As we suspected, Doctor Who will return on New Year’s Day 2020 and will then run every Sunday evening for the following 10 weeks.

So says The BBC in a new press statement.

The show’s first episode will be called Spyfall and will be the beginning of Jodie Whittaker’s first two-part adventure.

For those fans wishing The Doctor would return to his/her Christmas Day roots, we’re hearing  there’s a Christmas Day adventure already filmed for next year.

The Thirteenth Doctor is in her TARDIS on her way back to BBC One for a thrilling ten-part series which will land on New Year’s Day 2020, with subsequent episodes airing on Sundays.

Starting with a blockbuster action packed two-part episode entitled Spyfall, the Thirteenth Doctor is well and truly back with a bang. As Jodie Whittaker takes charge of the TARDIS once again, the Doctor will be joined by her friends Tosin Cole (Ryan), Mandip Gill (Yaz) and Bradley Walsh (Graham). The twelfth series will also welcome a host of famous faces including Stephen Fry, Sir Lenny Henry CBE, Robert Glenister and Goran Višnjić to name just a few.

Add to that some familiar faces including the Judoon and the Cybermen, series twelve is set to be an epic action packed rollercoaster for everyone, just don’t stray too far from behind the sofa…

Spyfall has been written by Chris Chibnall, Showrunner.

BBC One TX time is to be confirmed.

Oh, and while you’re watching that, you can also tune into Dracula which starts on New Year’s Day too for three nights:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
