Doctor Who season 13 has been a long time in the making and fans are desperate to know when the new series will be released.
Here’s everything we know about Doctor Who season 13.
When is Doctor Who season 13 coming out?
It was revealed that filming for Doctor Who season 13 had begun in November, with Jodie returning as the Time Lord.
Around the same time, the BBC also announced that the new chapter will be shorter than usual due to the coronavirus pandemic, and will be shy of three episodes.
Showrunner Chris Chibnall confirmed the upcoming series will span eight episodes with hopes of airing the season late in 2021.

‘In this strangest of years, the Doctor Who production team have worked wonders to get the show back into production,’ executive producer Chibnall said.
‘Given the complexity of making Doctor Who, and with new and rigorous Covid working protocols, it’s going to take us a little longer to film each episode, meaning we expect to end up with eight episodes, rather than the usual 11.’
He added: ‘But rest assured, the ambition, humour, fun and scares you expect from Doctor Who will all still be firmly in place. For everyone around the world, this is a challenging period — but the Doctor never shirks from a challenge.’
In a recent interview with EW, Chibnall vowed the new series would be put on TV as soon as it’s completed.
‘As soon as finish it, I promise we’ll put it on telly straight away,’ he told the publication.
Who is in the cast for Doctor Who season 13?
Jodie will be returning to play the Doctor and Mandip Gill will be reprising her role of Yas.
It’s already been confirmed that Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole, who play Graham O’Brien and Ryan Sinclair, will be leaving the series, making their final appearances in the festive special.
Chibnall has also teased a whole bunch of newcomers to the sci-fi epic.
‘We’ve got lots of new characters, new monsters, some old ones coming back,’ he told EW.
Revolution of the Daleks will air on New Year’s Day on BBC One.
