Between Chibnall's fresh vision for the beloved sci-fi staple; the suite of brand new writers, including Doctor Who's first writers of color; Whittaker taking over Timelord duties and this Sunday timeslot, the next season of Doctor Who will hopefully mark the beginning of a revitalized age of Doctor Who history that takes the show into the future while still paying homage to the best parts of its past.
Following its October 7 premiere, Doctor Who will air Sunday nights on BBC America, a new night for the show.More news: How to Watch Serena Williams vs. Karolina Pliskova
It's also been revealed that the Doctor Who season 11 premiere will be titled The Woman Who Fell to Earth, a clear reference to David Bowie's 1976 movie The Man Who Fell to Earth.
But while we wait to find out the exact details of when Doctor Who returns, we can at least start an official countdown.
New Zealand fans will be able to see Jodie Whittaker begin her time in the Tardis on October 8. The episode will then receive a special encore in its new regular primetime evening slot. Chibnall said in a statement. Jodie Whittaker's Doctor is about to burst into Sunday nights, and make the end of the weekend so much more exciting.More news: PEGIDA demonstrators march with photos of victims ‘killed by foreigners’ in Germany
He concluded: "The Thirteenth Doctor is falling from the sky and it's going to be a blast".
