In news that won’t surprise anyone, The BBC confirmed last night that series 12 of Doctor Who will not return until 2020.
Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content said:
“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”.
Showrunner Chris “The Chib” 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!”.
The New Year’s Day special, Resolution will be shown on New Year’s Day (obviously). BBC One at 7:00pm.
