Following tonight’s epic series finale, the BBC have announced that series 12 of Doctor Who will materialise on our screens in early 2020.
Jodie Whittaker’s first series as the Doctor has been a success, with an average consolidated audience of 8.4m.
Speaking about the series, Showrunner Chris Chibnall said:
“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.”
So, sadly we will have a bit of a wait for Series 12, but but it sounds like there will be more exciting adventures in store for the Doctor and her ‘fam’.
