Rumour: Series 11 To Have Fewer but Longer Eps, New TARDIS & Sonic
Jodie Whittaker’s debut series in 2018 will see some big changes to the show’s format, according to a recent press report. Originating again from the Mirror, their online report states: 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. They add: 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
