It is almost Halloween and Doctor Who is set to return with the latest new series. The Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and Yaz (Mandip Gill) are back and they pickup a new friend, Dan (John Bishop) along the way.
Series 13 focuses on The Flux. All six episodes, or chapters as they are now called, start on All Hallows’ Eve with The Halloween Apocalypse.
Who and what features in Chapter One?
Karvanista, a creative from a new race to the Doctor Who fandom (unless you count Wookies), is someone the Doctor is searching for at the start of Series 13.
It is not clear why the Doctor is chasing Karvanista but they appear to reach some agreement or is it a challenge?
Dan Played by John Bishop
This series the western half of England’s North will feature along with a new Liverpudlian companion, Dan portrayed by John Bishop.
Yaz Played by Mandip Gill
And of course, Yaz is back with the Doctor again. Mandip Gill is back as the Sheffield police officer.
The Doctor (Jodie Whittaker)
There are a few pix of The Doctor on her own but no indication of her state of mind given the revelations of the last series.
But what is that rock on the TARDIS’ console?
