WATCH: BBC drops very brief glimpse of Doctor Who series 13

The BBC dropped a very brief glimpse of Doctor Who series 13 at the weekend, below, but we’re still none-the-wiser about when the new series will arrive.

It was revealed at the events that Series 13 will be an anthology series, where every episode is linked in one huge story and each episode will end in a cliffhanger.

On top of this, Game of Thrones’ Greyworm actor Jacob Anderson will play a new recurring character Vinder.

While I have hated the last two series of Doctor Who as the writing was utterly horrendous, I do look forward to seeing John Bishop in the show.

Beyond that, I just hope that Chris Chibnall can up his game and deliver something watchable this series as star Jodie Whitaker deserves much, much better than she has been getting.

We also know that when this series ends, Russell T Davies, who brought the show back in 2005, will be helming again (here), so we only have to get through this series and hopefully, this ship can course-correct ahead of its 60th anniversary in 2023.

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….
