Doctor Who: Jodie Whittaker pictured filming scenes for the first time alongside co-star Bradley Walsh

Now we know why the BBC released the photos of Jodie in costume: filming outside a studio has commenced. This must be the immediately post-regeneration scenes (maybe?) because Jodie is still in Capaldi's suit...

Lots of set pics in this article.

For those that care: I'm not going to allow comments on this post because I'm going out of town with the family for the american Thanksgiving fun and games and I won't have the time to delete, ban and deal with the nonsense that people feel the need to post about a female Time Lord. I've never done this before with any post but I just don't want to have to deal with it.

Could that Peter Capaldi cameo in The Day of the Doctor be more significant than we realised?

wow... this one's going to bake your noodle.

Could Peter Capaldi's first on screen appearance as The Doctor in Day of the Doctor be connected to his final episode? Perhaps....

This article contains speculation, not spoilers but perhaps it would be considered spoilers. Read at your own peril.

There’s a crucial detail about Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor Who costume that everyone missed

That picture that was released of Jodie Whittaker in costume as the new Doctor? Well, it looks like the color of the coat was a bit off in that photo.

Radio Times tells us that instead of being a beige/brown it is now reported that the coat is actually, as reported by Doctor Who Brand Manager Edward Russell , "...maybe a cross between sky blue and lilac"

Now considering that the reveal of a new Doctor's costume is a major event you would think that someone at the BBC or Doctor Who would have looked harder at the photo but...

Meet the cast of the all new series of Doctor Who

The BBC has made an interesting move and had announced the cast of the next season of Doctor Who.

When Jodie Whittaker takes over as the Thirteenth Doctor on the global hit show next year, she will be joined by an all new regular cast. BBC announces today that Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill will line-up as the new regular cast on Doctor Who.

Why would they do this now? Normally the next season wouldn’t start shooting till next year and there wouldn’t be any reason to make the announcement till then. Usually announcements are made to head off leaks and photos from on set shooting.

What does this mean? Are they going to start shooting soon? Are these cast members going to appear in the Christmas special?

Official First Preview: BBC Restored SHADA

The history of the “lost episode” of the Tom Baker era has been covered extensively but in a nutshell: The legendary Douglas Adams wrote this episode and they started shooting it but a strike at the BBC caused them to stop in the middle and by the time they resolved the strike they had to move on to other episodes and so SHADA was lost forever.

Not quite - Being that it was Doug Adams people clambered to learn more about it and over the last many years people have tried to complete the episode with animation and rather good novelization by Gareth Roberts and a brilliant audiobook of it performed by co-star Lala Ward ( amazon link: ). I HIGHLY recommend the audiobook. It’s fantastic and Lala Ward is amazing especially in her Tom Baker voice.

Well.. flash forward to now and the rumors are true: the BBC has done an official completion of SHADA using restored original footage and new animation to fill in the gaps but using the original cast to record their performances from the original script.

I have high hopes-

#DoctorWho #shada

Changes to the new Dr Who series starring Jodie Whittaker revealed

Normally I try to get people to go to the site where the story is so they give them some clicks and looks for originating the story but this story is such total and absolute clickbait from the Mirror that below is the entire article.

There’s nothing we haven’t expected or didn’t already know: new Doctor, new sonic screwdriver and new changes to the Tardis interior set (not, as this article seems to suggest a different exterior - although we’ve seen subtle changes before) and Jodie is going to be amazing.

We all knew Chris Chibnall would make some changes just like every other new showrunner. No surprise.

Only new news is that the next series will only be 10 episodes but they suggest the eps will be a full hour rather than the standard 45-ish minutes.

Here’s all of the article so you don’t have to click over there:

- - - - -

Doctor Who will have fewer episodes when Jodie Whittaker takes over the lead role next autumn.

The BBC1 series will run for 10 weeks rather than the usual 12 or 13, but each programme will last a full hour instead of 45 minutes.

The changes are part of a revamp by incoming show boss Chris Chibnal.

Excitingly Chibnall – a lifelong Doctor Who fan - has also ordered a new-look police box, a redesigned TARDIS control room and an updated sonic screwdriver.

One insider explained: “It is traditional for new showrunners to come in and shake things up to stamp their mark on the show and Chris is not doing things by halves.

"Expect something fresh and brilliant, with more of the stories travelling backwards in time, to interesting historical eras, as well as forwards.”

Previously, the series featuring Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith all lasted for 13 episodes, plus a Christmas special.

This then dwindled to 12 episodes plus a festive edition under Peter Capaldi.

His swansong as the 12th Doctor will come this Christmas when he regenerates into Jodie during the last two minutes of action.

It is unclear where the new BBC1 series will be scheduled on Saturday evenings however, as an autumn outing will again set it on a collision course with Strictly Come Dancing. Fans, many of whom are primary school kids, prefer to watch the show in its traditional teatime slot rather in peaktime.

The last series, in 2016, aired in the springtime to avoid Strictly altogether.
