FoCC Reactor: BBC Announces The 13th Season Return Date for Doctor Who


The BBC announced today date our beloved Doctor will return to our screens for what is being billed as a monster-filled 13th season. Mark your calendars for Halloween 2021!!

The news was certainly a shocker but there was a hint eagle-eyed fans point out a few days ago with the official social media channels going dark. They came roaring back with a teaser trailer and “Flux” was added to the end of the title of on the Official Twitter for the series.

What we know so far:

  • We all know by now how secretive the BBC and the team behind Doctor Who are and there is a lot of speculation for what The Doctor (Jodie Whittaker), Yaz (Mandip Gill), and Dan Lewis (John Bishop) will face during this season.
  • During SDCC Chris Chibnall stated that this upcoming season will be comprised of eight episodes with a twist. This season will be one connected story. Whovians will remember this was done before during the Tom Baker ear in season 16 with Key to Time.
  • Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones) was announced as a recurring character named Vinder.
  • The Sontarans and the Weeping Angels are BACK! There is also a new enemy teased during the trailer called The Ravegers.

The trailer, which featured Jodie Whittaker sending a warning of The Flux, was certainly convincing.


I always look forward to each new episode and will the new cast additions as well as the hints of what is in store my calendar is not only marked – my scheduled is cleared for Halloween.
