The British sci-fi series “Doctor Who”, which has garnered cult following for the past 10 years, returns after a two-year hiatus on the BBC this weekend.
Season 13 will air on BBC America on Sunday, October 31 at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT). You can also watch the show on Philo, FuboTV and Sling.
The premise is based on The Doctor, who is a time lord and considered a “human-looking alien”. The Doctor travels through time and space with various companions who are human and who are put in place to help The Doctor adjust. The Doctor travels through a time machine disguised as a blue police phone booth, and the Doctor’s mission is to save the planet from the dangers presented to him – and the monsters that stand in his way.
Jodie Whittaker will return for her third round as the 13th Doctorate. The season includes a new medic and companion on ‘out of this world’ adventures. Besides Whittaker, the cast includes Jacob Anderson, John Bishop and Mandip Gill.
Chris Chibnall is head writer and executive producer for the third consecutive season. Some of the monsters from previous seasons – including Sontanans, Cybermen, and Weeping Angels – will return in the 13-episode season. The first episode is titled “The Halloween Apocalypse” and airs on Halloween night.
