Doctor Who materialises Sunday nights from October



Fellow Whovians, the wait is almost over for Jodie Whittaker's first full episode as everyone's favourite time traveller - hey, I'm biased. Doctor Who series 11 begins with The Woman Who Fell to Earth on BBC One on Sunday, 7th October!

Chris Chibnall, Showrunner said “New Doctor, new home! Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor is about to burst into Sunday nights — and make the end of the weekend so much more exciting. Get everybody’s homework done, sort out your Monday clothes, then grab some special Sunday night popcorn, and settle down with all of the family for Sunday night adventures across space and time. (Also, move the sofa away from the wall so parents can hide behind it during the scary bits). The Thirteenth Doctor is falling from the sky and it’s going to be a blast.”

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content said: “With Chris Chibnall at the helm and Jodie Whittaker’s arrival as the new Doctor we are heralding a brand new era for the show and so it feels only right to give it a new home on Sunday nights at the heart of BBC One’s Autumn schedule. ”

What are your thoughts on the move from Saturday to Sunday nights, and does it matter in an era of catch-up and non-linear curated content? Let me know in the comments below.
