British newspaper The Mirror reports that the new series of Doctor Who will premiere in the UK on New Years Day next year, with a likely start here in Australia on the 2nd January on ABC TV.
The source (https://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/no-doctor-who-special-christmas-20917725 )states:
Doctor Who fans face a Christmas without their favourite show, with no festive special planned – for the second year running.
But there is some good news – the long-awaited 12th series is due to start on New Year’s Day, with one of the biggest episodes in the show’s history.
Insiders say the first instalment of a two-part story, starring Jodie Whittaker , is one of the most ambitious ever attempted.
A BBC One source said: “It’s going to be huge. The scale is just epic. No one will be disappointed.”
Whittaker and her time-travelling pals Bradley Walsh as Graham O’Brien, Tosin Cole as his step grandson Ryan Sinclair and Mandip Gill as Yasmin Khan, will all return for the new 10-part run.
The second half of the story is then expected to air on January 4, as the series shifts back to its traditional Saturday evening teatime slot.
