Thirteen Comes To Sheffield
♦ The new Doctor Who starts on 7 October on BBC1 and here’s the stars of the new season at the red carpet premiere this week in Sheffield with details from Radio Times…
The premiere took place in Sheffield because the first episode in the new season– The Woman Who Fell to Earth – is set in the city.
Whittaker and Bradley Walsh both posed in front of their new home, the Tardis.
“New Doctor, new home!” showrunner Chris Chibnall said in a release.
“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.”
Given the start date, the series 11 finale will probably air on Sunday 9th December, meaning there’s only a short wait before the 2018 Christmas special on the 25th December (see below).
