Surprise? (Not really?) Doctor Who returns on New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, 2020, with its 12th series since returning from a long hiatus in 2005.
We were promised new episodes in 2020, then “early 2020,” so the Beeb comes through!
2-part premiere: ‘Spyfall’
Doctor Who News has a BBC description of the new season and the Doctor Who Series 12 premiere, “Spyfall”:
The Thirteenth Doctor is in her TARDIS on her way back to BBC One for a thrilling ten-part series which will land on New Year’s Day 2020, with subsequent episodes airing on Sundays.
Starting with a blockbuster action packed two-part episode entitled Spyfall, the Thirteenth Doctor is well and truly back with a bang. As Jodie Whittaker takes charge of the TARDIS once again, the Doctor will be joined by her friends Tosin Cole (Ryan), Mandip Gill (Yaz) and Bradley Walsh (Graham). The twelfth series will also welcome a host of famous faces including Stephen Fry, Sir Lenny Henry CBE, Robert Glenister and Goran Višnjić to name just a few.
Add to that some familiar faces including the Judoon and the Cybermen, series twelve is set to be an epic action packed rollercoaster for everyone, just don’t stray too far from behind the sofa…
