“Everything is possible.” Yes, Doctor Who is set to make an explosive return this May with Ncuti Gatwa returning as the Fifteenth Doctor for his first season and from the looks of the trailer, changes are afoot!

Check out the trailer for the upcoming season here…

The new season of Doctor Who will see Ncuti Gatwa return as the Fifteenth Doctor, alongside Millie Gibson as Ruby Sunday, after they made their highly acclaimed debut on Christmas Day in ‘The Church on Ruby Road’.

The upcoming series will see the Doctor and Ruby travel through time and space on adventures to unknown lands, to the Regency era in England, to outer space worlds and the sixties.

This season will also see the return of Michelle Greenidge as Carla Sunday, Angela Wynter as Cherry Sunday and Anita Dobson as Mrs Flood as well as featuring an array of special guest stars including Jinkx Monsoon, Aneurin Barnard, Yasmin Finney, Jonathan Groff, Bonnie Langford, Jemma Redgrave, Lenny Rush and Indira Varma with more to be announced soon.

“At last, it’s my great delight to unleash a whole new season of the Doctor and Ruby’s adventures together,” said showrunner Russell T Davies. “Monsters! Chases! Villains! Mysteries! And a terrifying secret that’s been spanning time and space for decades. Don’t miss a second!”

The release date isn’t the only good news for us Whovians! For those in the UK, for the first time ever, the Doctor will land with two episodes premiering on BBC iPlayer at midnight, before arriving on BBC One later that day right before the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final.

At the same time, those outside of the UK can watch the Doctor and Ruby on their epic adventures as the TARDIS is set to land on Disney+ where available. Viewers in the UK will now be able to watch whenever and wherever they choose, with the option to stream at midnight on BBC iPlayer or tune in at primetime on Saturday nights on BBC One.

An episode will continue to drop on BBC iPlayer at midnight, followed by a primetime slot on BBC One each week following that.

Doctor Who returns on 11 May 2024.
