AMERICA's hit action-adventure series, Doctor Who, is back! The season will begin with a two-part episode titled "Spyfall".
If your New Year's resolution is to watch more Doctor Who, you're in luck: Season 12 of the sci-fi series will premiere on Wednesday, Jan. 1 at 8/7c, BBC America announced Monday. The episode will be followed by a Q&A with Jodie Whittaker, Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill.
The network also announced that it has partnered with BBC Studios and Fathom Events to screen the premiere episode on over 600 cinema screens on January 5. Tickets and a list of participating locations will be available beginning December 6 at the Fathom Events website.
Following the New Year's Day extravaganza, the 10-part series will return to its usual Sunday night timeslot. Last year, thousands of Whovians packed Madison Square Garden to celebrate Jodie Whittaker's landmark debut as the first female Doctor. (ER, Timeless) and Robert Glenister (Paranoid, Law and Order: UK).
Speaking about his guest stint Stephen said: 'Short of being picked for a British space exploration programme and I readily concede that I'm past the age where I'd be considered (if I was ever the right age for such a posting) - then being in an episode of Doctor Who will certainly do as a very sweet second-place excitement'.
Spyfall has been written by Chris Chibnall, Showrunner.
