Doctor Who: Jodie Whittaker's debut date announced

As of publishing, it's 31 days until Doctor Who returns for its Season 11 premiere, aptly titled "The Woman Who Fell to Earth". In any case, season 11 will also feature a new group of companions and a new showrunner in the form of Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch), who takes over for longtime showrunner Steven Moffat.

What's more, fans have been teased with the episode title for Jodie's debut. Jodie Whittaker's Doctor is about to burst into Sunday nights, and make the end of the weekend so much more exciting.

That's right; Doctor Who is moving to Sunday nights from Saturdays. And with United Kingdom and U.S. fans getting the chance to watch the 13th Doctor in action for the first time at the same time across the globe, it's a really cool time to be a Whovian.

BBC's new Doctor Who season, starring Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, will premiere on BBC America on October 7, the same date as the show's United Kingdom premiere.

'The Thirteenth Doctor is falling from the sky and it's going to be a blast'.

Little is known about the coming episodes, but the BBC released a trailer earlier in the year hinting at what drama is to come.

She'll be joined by a whole team of new companions, made up of Graham (played by "The Chase" presenter Bradley Walsh), Yasmin and Ryan (portrayed by newcomers Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole).

"There's more of an understanding of each other and [a sense of] knowing each other's strengths and weaknesses".

We last saw The Doctor free-falling through the air as the TARDIS exploded following her regeneration. Naturally, the nature of the show has changed since then - especially since New Who brought the series to a global stage - though in the U.K., Doctor Who is still fondly thought of as a family show.
