This might have passed you by, but there has been a bit of change in the casting of the Doctor.
Almost 55 years since it began, the Time Lord is to be portrayed by a woman as Jodie Whittaker takes the controls of the Tardis. The series begins with a bang as the residents of Sheffield encounter a mysterious woman who can’t remember her name crash landing in the city. Can the locals believe her, and can she help solve the strange goings on in the city?
Also starring are Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill as the Doctor’s companions.
Doctor Who is on BBC One at 18.45.
