Here’s the episode synopsis:The Doctor, Ryan, Graham and Yaz arrive in 17th-century Lancashire and become embroiled in a witch trial, run by the local landowner; as fear stalks the land, the arrival of King James I only serves to intensify the witch hunt.
Here’s the season details too:
This series marks the arrival of Jodie Whittaker, the Thirteenth Doctor – a super-smart force of nature, alongside a team of new and delightful characters. This series is full of action and adventure, humour and thrills – an unmissable drama everyone will enjoy.

Showrunner, Chris Chibnall, said: “Finally – Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor is about to crash land on to the nation’s screens. It’s thrilling to think, in the next few weeks and months, there will be children encountering Jodie’s Doctor in the next few weeks who’ve never seen the show before. She’ll be forever their Doctor: you never forget your first.
Alongside Jodie, we have a delightful ensemble of new characters for the audience to fall in love with, led by the incomparable Bradley Walsh.
