With new showrunner Chris Chibnall taking over Doctor Who for its upcoming eleventh season, its reasonable to expect some major changes. But in addition to Jodie Whittaker‘s female Doctor, a new report from UK Tabloid The Mirror suggests that the show’s very schedule could be affected.
While seasons of the show have typically lasted for 12-13 episodes (plus a Christmas Special), the Mirror reports that Chibnall and Whittaker’s first season will have just 10. It’s not all bad news, however. If the report is true, each episode will be 60 minutes long, instead of 45 as in past seasons.
According to math, that’s a net gain of 30 minutes overall for the regular season.
In addition, the tabloid reports that the show will get a redesigned TARDIS interior and sonic screwdriver, but we knew that was going to happen anyway. Still, this article wasn’t quite long enough, so we thought we should mention it.
No word yet on when the next season will air, but we still have Peter Capaldi‘s final episode, and Whittaker’s first, to look forward to on Christmas.
