Doctor Who will return for a twelfth series (revived era) in early 2020, with Jodie Whittaker reprising her role as the Thirteenth Doctor. Also returning alongside Jodie for their second series will be Tosin Cole (Ryan) Mandip Gill (Yaz) and Bradley Walsh (Graham).
Chris Chibnall returns as showrunner, with Matt Strevens as executive producer.
The much-awaited series 12 promo debuted recently, drawing attention to roles for Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry.
Short of being picked for a British space exploration programme and I readily concede that I’m past the age where I’d be considered (if I was ever the right age for such a posting) – then being in an episode of Doctor Who will certainly do as a very sweet second-place excitement.Stephen Fry
It was absolutely brilliant to be welcomed into the fantastical world of Doctor Who. The nearest I have been to the Tardis was when I played the Caribbean Doctor in The Lenny Henry Show, so as a life-long (hiding behind the sofa type) Doctor Who fan this is a very special moment for me.Lenny Henry
