The BBC has announced an October 31 premiere of “Doctor Who: Flux”, the thirteenth season of the modern series of “Doctor Who”, which will tell a single story that unfolds over six episodes and airs until December 5.
This marks the first single-story season for the show since the series “The Trial of a Timelord” with The Sixth Doctor back in 1986. Mandip Gill and John Bishop act as companions this time, but details of the threat known as ‘Flux’ are still below cover.
This will mark the final full season for both star Jodie Whittaker and showrunner Chris Chibnall. The pair have also just finished shooting three specials with the last one to serve as Whittaker’s exit from the role. These offers are issued on New Year’s Day, the beginning of 2022 and the end of 2022, respectively.
After this, Russell T. Davies returns as showrunner, which he earned during the tenure of Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant in the modern series. Whittaker’s sequel to the role of The Fourteenth Doctor has yet to be announced.
