Doctor Who; a loved show by millions of fans. When it was announced in 2017 that Peter Capaldi would be stepping down as the Doctor, the question of who will replace him was raised. During the Wimbledon final, it was revealed Peter Capaldi will regenerate into Jodie Whittaker – the show’s first ever female Doctor.
Doctor Who has been off our screens for a year, but today, the hit BBC series made an epic return. Jodie Whittaker returned as the Thirteenth Doctor, rocked a tux and faced an old foe in the Series 12 premiere.
First broadcast in 2007, James Corden and Ruth Jones introduced the nation to a brand-new sitcom - Gavin and Stacey. Starring Mathew Horne, Joanna Page, James Corden, Ruth Jones and many more big names, the sitcom ran for three series before ending on an open book for future episodes.
After being off air for a year, Doctor Who will make an explosive return on New Year’s Day with a blockbuster two-part story. “Spyfall” written by current showrunner, Chris Chibnall, will be the first of ten episodes in Series 12. Chibnall has described episode one as the show’s “most lavish, location-filled, action-packed episode” they have ever done.
Doctor Who at Christmas is everyone’s favourite thought. Well, until 2018 that was when the show dematerialised from its usual Christmas Day slot and moved to New Year’s Day instead. Every year (well, most years) since the show was revived back in 2005 by Russell T. Davies, the show has produced a whopper of a series followed by a festive special, all of which taking a different tone. There’s been a giant spider, which helped formed planet Earth, dream crabs, talking ‘cactuses’ (cacti?) and so much more.
Doctor Who has been off our screens for nearly a year and it has only been until recently that news surrounding the upcoming series. Jodie Whittaker will be returning as the Thirteenth Doctor with her companions Bradley Walsh (Graham), Tosin Cole (Ryan) and Mandip Gill (Yaz).
