As Series 11 came to a close on BBC One, it was announced that Series 12 is on the way and will be returning to BBC One in early 2020. The BBC also announced that Jodie Whittaker (The Doctor) and her companions Bradley Walsh (Graham), Mandip Gill (Yasmin) and Tosin Cole (Ryan) will also return.
Showrunner Chris Chibnall comments on the new series “We’re off again! Well we never actually stopped – as Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor and friends have been winning the hearts of families across the nation this autumn, we’ve been busy with a whole new set of action packed adventures for the Thirteenth Doctor. We adore making this show and have been blown away by the response from audiences, so we can’t wait to bring more scares, more monsters and more Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole to BBC One. Brilliant!”
Charlotte Moore, Director of Content added, “We’re delighted that the Doctor and her friends will be returning to thrill audiences in 2020. I know Chris and the whole team are already working on a whole new set of exciting adventures. In the meantime, we’ve got a very special episode on New Year’s Day for everyone to enjoy.”
