Nice trailer! I’m not sold on her outfit but I’m looking forward to the show.


To be fair, The Doctor has spent 2000 years as a man AND bouncing accross time and space, she’s probably got no clue how a stereotypical woman would dress. Even as a man most of his clothes have been quite…unique.


New Season starts 8 October


This will be fascinating. Monday is ABC’s News and Current Affairs night. Where will DW go?



The Monday screening is due to the BBC moving the show from Saturday to Sunday in Britain. The first episode is titled The Woman Who Fell to Earth.

I think the ABC will put the show at 8pm, pushing back Four Corners, Media Watch and Q&A by 20 minutes.


I. CANNOT. WAIT!!! :laughing::laughing::laughing:



Possibly show it live in the early morning on main channel then on ABC2 ABC Comedy in prime time.


… and paired with Whovians hosted by Rove McManus, based on his tweet tonight:



The first episode of the new season will be screened in selected cinemas in Australia (not in NT) on Monday October 8. Fans will also get to see interviews and behind the scenes footage.

Doctor Who

From Monday 8 October

The last time viewers saw the Doctor, she was falling from her TARDIS so it’s about time for the Doctor to land. This time it’s all change, as Doctor Who is moving to Monday nights, launching on Monday 8 October. The new season comprises 10 x 50-minute episodes, kicking off with a feature length 65-minute opening episode. The series will be available on ABC iview directly after the UK’s broadcast and will air on ABC in HD that night (time TBC).

This year marks a brand-new era with a new showrunner, a new Doctor, new friends and a whole host of new monsters – so it’s only fitting that the new Time Lord will land in a new time zone on ABC.

Showrunner Chris Chibnall made the decision to cast the first ever woman in the iconic role. He has
also shaken up who will travel with the Doctor, with a team of new friends. Jodie will be joined by an all new regular cast - Bradley Walsh will star as Graham O’Brien, Tosin Cole will play Ryan Sinclair and Mandip Gill will play Yasmin Khan. Also joining the series in a returning role is Sharon D. Clarke.
Earlier this year, Jodie unveiled a new logo and insignia, and it was announced that the series is scored by burgeoning composer Segun Akinola. Segun has provided an exciting and emotional score beckoning in a new series for the show, including a fresh take on the legendary theme tune.

Chris Chibnall also recently introduced the team behind the new series. The writing team includes: Malorie Blackman, Ed Hime, Pete McTighe, and Joy Wilkinson. The directors are: Sallie Aprahamian, Jamie Childs, Jennifer Perrott, and Mark Tonderai. Chibnall has also written the first episode of the brand-new series which is titled “The Woman Who Fell to Earth”.

With the Doctor on her way, it’s only a matter of time before viewers can enjoy being transported out of this world this spring.



From 8 Monday October on ABC Comedy

Rove McManus and his team of super fans are also back, with Whovians, the half-hour Doctor Whofan show, returning to ABC COMEDY on Monday nights (Time TBC).

Airing Monday nights after the ABC’s broadcast of Doctor Who, Rove will be joined again by Adam Richards, Tegan Higginbotham, Steven O’Donnell, Justin Hamilton and guests, with the team ready to welcome Jodie Whittaker and her new time travelling friends.

“I’m thrilled to be back with the Whovians team to talk, dissect and geek-out about Doctor Who, our favourite show on TV. Especially since we’d happily do it for free without television cameras anyway. It’s also going to be extra exciting this year as we welcome Jodie Whittaker to the role of the Doctor. I can’t wait to see where it takes us,” said Rove McManus.

Filmed in front of a live studio audience, the 11th series of Doctor Who offers a galaxy of things for Rove and the panel to dissect, delve into and celebrate. So get ready to get on board.


ABC still seems to have no idea how it is going to schedule the new season of Doctor Who. Program schedules for Monday 8 October have been released for the main channel and ABC Comedy both proclaiming that Doctor Who and Whovians respectively would debut that day but neither appears in the schedules :thinking:

About the only main channel spot available in prime time would be 6pm.

BBC has released some episode 1 and 2 details.


ABC has scheduled Dr Who premiere broadcast for 5:45pm on Monday 8 October.

BBC trailer


How long is each episode in the new season? Will Whovians follow immediately afterwards, or will fans have to wait until 7pm?


Premiere will be 65 minutes, the other 9 episodes will average 50 minutes.


cant wait to watch this:)


Perhaps ABC should schedule the premiere at 5.55pm so it can finish right before the 7pm news.


Whovians 7:30pm Mondays ABC Comedy.


Hell of a lead in compared to Think Tank.
