BBC America’s Doctor Who Twitter account has released a hello message from the Thirteenth Doctor, Jodie Whittaker.

After months of waiting, the air date and title for episode one of the brand new series of Doctor Who has been revealed today.
The message comes on the back of the announcement that The Woman Who Fell to Earth will air on Sunday 7th October 2018, which also marks a huge change as Doctor Who moves to Sunday nights. It stars Jodie Whittaker (The Doctor), Mandip Gill (Yasmin Khan), Bradley Walsh (Graham O’Brien), and Tosin Cole (Ryan Sinclair).
This will be first time an entire series of Doctor Who has been in the Sunday night slot, though individual episodes have been transmitted on Sundays on occasion. Even though Doctor Who is strongly associated with a traditional Saturday slot, it’s not the first time it’s moved. The 1983 season aired on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and the 1984 season on Thursdays and Fridays. Sunday broadcasts have included The Christmas Invasion, The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe, and The Return of Doctor Mysterio.
