Filming is underway on season 13 of Doctor Who.
The new series will have fewer episodes than previous ones due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The cast and crew are shooting eight episodes rather than the usual 11.
Talking about the new series, showrunner Chris Chibnall said: “In this strangest of years, the Doctor Who production team have worked wonders to get the show back into production. We’re thrilled to be back making the show.
“Given the complexity of making Doctor Who, and with new and rigorous Covid working protocols, it’s going to take us a little longer to film each episode, meaning we expect to end up with eight episodes, rather than the usual eleven. But rest assured, the ambition, humour, fun and scares you expect from Doctor Who will all still be firmly in place. For everyone around the world, this is a challenging period – but the Doctor never shirks from a challenge!”
The Doctor and her gang will be back on screens over Christmas in this year’s festive special, Revolution of the Daleks.
