Happy New Year – Happy New Who
The Christmas season may be over but we have a new season of Doctor Who to look forward to – starting tomorrow (ABC TV, Thursday, January 2, 7.30 pm (6.55 am IView).
We’ve all waited a year to see what Showrunner Chris Chibnall and his Doctor Jodie Whittaker can do in their second series together.
And they are back with what, if the cast list is any indication, is looking-like a blockbuster two-part episode “Spyfall”. Surprisingly this episode marks the debut of Stephen Fry in the Whoniverse and he will be in some pretty illustrious company with Sir Lenny Henry, Robert Glenister and Goran Visnjic popping up in this 12th season of the rebooted series.
Whittaker will once again be joined by Tosin Cole (Ryan), Mandip Gill (Yaz) and last season’s scene-stealer Bradley Walsh (Graham) and while Chibnall steered away from the more iconic “big bads” last time around expect a visit from the Judoon and Cybermen this series.H
