Doctor Who‘s return is set for 6.45pm Sunday, and the timeslot that’ll be occupied by the following episode has now also been confirmed by the BBC.
Episode two of Series 11, The Ghost Monument, which is written by showrunner Chris Chibnall, will air on Sunday 14th October at 6.55pm, and it’ll run for the now-standard 50 minutes (as opposed to the premiere’s 60-minute slot). Due to the typically fixed nature of the BBC’s Sunday schedule, Doctor Who is likely to remain in this slot with little to no changes for the rest of the season.
Still reeling from their first encounter, can the Doctor and her new friends stay alive long enough in a hostile alien environment to solve the mystery of Desolation? And just who are Angstrom and Epzo?
Action-adventure for all the family, starring Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill. Guest starring Shaun Dooley, Susan Lynch and Art Malk. Written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Mark Tonderai.
