Doctor Who: It’s about time…


The last time we saw the Doctor, she was falling from the TARDIS so it’s about time for her to land.  This time it’s all change, as Doctor Who is moving to Sunday nights, launching on Sunday 7th October.

I reckon that most of you have stopped reading, and since what the BBC PR copy writer wrote is pretty much the same sort of cringeworthy piss-taking shite we’ve come to expect whenever an SF show appears on one of the big terrestrial stations here in the UK.  So what I’ll do is jump to a statement from the man himself, Mr Chris Chibnall:

New Doctor, new home! Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor is about to burst into Sunday nights — and make the end of the weekend so much more exciting. Get everybody’s homework done, sort out your Monday clothes, then grab some special Sunday night popcorn, and settle down with all of the family for Sunday night adventures across space and time. (Also, move the sofa away from the wall so parents can hide behind it during the scary bits). The Thirteenth Doctor is falling from the sky and it’s going to be a blast.

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content said: “With Chris Chibnall at the helm and Jodie Whittaker’s arrival as the new Doctor we are heralding a brand new era for the show and so it feels only right to give it a new home on Sunday nights at the heart of BBC One’s Autumn schedule.

Showrunner Chris Chibnall has written the first episode of the brand new series which is titled The Woman Who Fell to Earth. With the Doctor on her way it’s only a matter of time before viewers can enjoy being transported out of this world this autumn.
