About Doctor Who
Official Description: The further adventures in time and space of the alien adventurer known as the Doctor, a Time Lord/Lady who can change appearance and gender by regenerating when near death, and his/her human companions.
Jodie Whittaker is the star this time, taking on the role of the regenerating alien from Gallifrey. As noted already many times, Jodie is the first female Doctor in the history of the series. Joining her for the intergalactic fun are a host of new companions. Longtime Doctor Who showrunners Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin have moved on. Now, Chris Chibnall, Matt Stevens, and Sam Hoyle take the reigns to steer the Doctor into a whole new set of science fiction shenanigans.
Doctor Who features a cast that includes …
Bradley Walsh as Graham O’Brien

Mandip Gill as Yasmin Khan

Third, a whole new team of writers and producers. The new creative team behind the scenes are the people who will ultimately steer this new season to new heights or to a dark place, like
