The 12th Series of Doctor Who Starring Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor and Bradley Walsh, Tosin COle and Mandip Gill as her companions further explored adventures in Space and Time while still keeping the show grounded with new and returning villains while still keeping the show fresh. This series we said goodbye to Graham and Ryan while the next series we look forward and say hello to Dan Lewis portrayed by John Bishop.
Jodie Whittaker’s globally acclaimed Thirteenth Doctor returns for her sophomore season a brand new set of action-packed epic adventures spanning space and time. Accompanied by her three best friends, Ryan, Yaz and Graham, the Thirteenth Doctor is set to face her toughest challenges yet. Featuring terrifying monsters old and new, figures from Earth’s history, and an eclectic set of guest stars, this series will delve deeper into the hearts of the Thirteenth Doctor. Cinematic visuals, compelling characters, and a host of alien threats all collide in new episodes shot through with Doctor Who’s trademark warmth, humour and heart.
I very much enjoyed the series and hope to see it continue in Series 13(Flux) when I write about it.
Series 12 consisted of 9 stories shown over 11 episodes, bring back two-parters, a format that had not occurred the previous season. Spyfall, the opening story of the series, was the first time since 2010’s The End of Time that a two-parter didn’t receive individual titles. The series had a heavy environmental theme, mirroring current global concerns.
The series continued the “Timeless Child” story arc, and delved into an unknown past of the Doctor, the Time Lords and Gallifrey. This was done via a more “traditional” series arc, as was prominent in the Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat eras.
Series 12 delved deeper into the companions’ lives and ultimately resulted in the departure of Ryan Sinclair and Graham O’Brien in the New Years special. The series also saw the temporary return of Captain Jack Harkness.Published in
