The BBC just confirmed the rumor that ‘Doctor Who’ will not return for a full season until 2020. Can we sonic that decision away, please!?
In a recent press release, the BBC stated:
“Series 12 will see Jodie reprise her role as the Doctor and she will once again be joined by Bradley Walsh (Graham), Mandip Gill (Yasmin) and Tosin Cole (Ryan).”
Showrunner Chris Chibnall also gave a statement, saying:
“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.”
He continued, saying:
“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 for the show 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.”
‘Doctor Who’ returns for a special on ‘Who Year’s Day’ episode on New Year’s Day. The special will come in place of the long-standing tradition of having a ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas special, and is titled ‘Resolution.’
