When season 11 of Doctor Who airs on the BBC, it will feel very different than past seasons. It will be the shortest overall episode order since the first revival returned to air in 2015.
The Mirror has reported, that the plan at the moment is for there to be only 10, yes ten, episodes for the new season. This is down from 12 during the Peter Capaldi era and the 13 we frequently saw before that. There is a silver lining however, while most of the episodes previously ran for 45 minutes, the new season, starring Jodie Whittaker as the doctor, will run for a full 60 minutes! This will give us longer, more extensive stories, and center more on individual chapters, rather than producing a large amount of them.
New episodes starting Whittaker could air as early as 2018, but filming has not yet begun. However the Christmas Special, which is set to air in just a couple months, will feature Jodie in the final moments of the hour. Jodie Whittaker is set to take over the role as the Thirteenth Doctor from the 2017 Christmas special onward. On 16 July 2017, BBC announced that Whittaker would become the thirteenth and first female incarnation of The Doctor in the British TV series Doctor Who, taking over the role from Peter Capaldi in the 2017 Christmas special episode “Twice Upon a Time”. Her arrival in the series will coincide with that of new executive producer and head writer, Chris Chibnall.
There are some other changes this upcoming season. For one, they have modernized the Tardis interior slightly. Also, Whittaker’s Doctor will have a new Sonic Screwdriver. But these are things that we anticipate when there is a new doctor around.
In Case you forgot, Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television program produced by the BBC since 1963. The program depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called “the Doctor”, an extraterrestrial being from the planet Gallifrey. The Doctor explores the universe in a time-travelling space ship called the TARDIS. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Accompanied by a number of companions, the Doctor combats a variety of foes, while working to save civilizations and help people in need.
