Doctor Who season 12 spoilers Writer Chris Chibnall reveals Jodie Whittaker shake-up | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Doctor Who will be returning to BBC One a lot sooner than first thought but according to show runner Chris Chibnall, there could be some changes in store. He will be leading the hit sci-fi drama for another year – his second – which will also see Jodie Whittaker return as the eponymous hero.

In season 11, Whovians watched in wonder as the Doctor and her TARDIS team took on mysterious aliens and historical conundrums. 

While that is the very backbone of Doctor Who, it seems Chibnall thinks there’s still scope for change and variety.

The Broadchurch writer said to Radio Times in an exclusive interview: “There is a difference between the first year of a Doctor and the second. 

“There are different types of stories you want to tell, different rhythms and structures.

Fans don’t have long to wait to see the 12th season kick off, as the Doctor will return in a two-part special, Spyfall. 

The special will air on New Year’s Day before the rest of the series continues on its usual Sunday night slot. 

A press release said of the new episode: “Starting with a blockbuster action packed two-part episode entitled Spyfall, the Thirteenth Doctor is well and truly back with a bang.

“As Jodie Whittaker takes charge of the TARDIS once again, the Doctor will be joined by her friends Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill and Bradley Walsh.

“The 12th series will also welcome a host of famous faces including Stephen Fry, Sir Lenny Henry CBE, Robert Glenister and Foran Visnjic to name just a few.

“Add to that some familiar faces including the Judoon and the Cybermen, series 12 is set to be an epic action packed rollercoaster for everyone, just don’t stray too far from behind the sofa…”

Spyfall has been confirmed to have been written by Chibnall. 

Doctor Who will return to BBC One on New Years Day. 

The full interview with Chris Chibnall is in this week’s Radio Times, out now.
