Doctor Who has been renewed for a 12th (modern) season with Jodi Whittaker returning.
But the series will not return until 2020.
“We’re off again! Well we never actually stopped,” showrunner Chris Chibnall said in a statement. “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 13th Doctor.”
Chibnall also confirmed that Whittaker’s three companions would also be returning, adding: “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!”
A festive special will screen on January 2 on ABC.
