Feature-length premiere for Doctor Who Series 11



Jodie Whittaker's first episode of Doctor Who will be a feature-length adventure, introducing her and the new team TARDIS (played by Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill), running at 65 minutes.

The episode running time was unveiled as part of a listing for the BBC Worldwide Showcase in Liverpool later this month. Alongside the announcement, the BBC has issued this tantalising summary of what to expect from the upcoming series.

"Already highly anticipated, Series 11 heralds a brand-new era for Doctor Who with a world-class team at the helm. Incoming lead writer Chris Chibnall has a fresh and inclusive vision for the series. Bigger and bolder than ever, this series marks the arrival of Jodie Whittaker, the 13th Doctor – a super-smart force of nature, alongside a team of new and delightful characters. The show will be full of action and adventure, humour and thrills. An unmissable high-end drama everyone will enjoy."

Doctor Who series 11 will be broadcast this autumn.
