Doctor Who: Jodie Whittaker's debut date announced

Doctor Who- Jodie Whitaker

Sure, the move has been rumoured for a while, but it's still shocking - with most expecting the BBC to treat the first female Doctor in the same way as they have the male Doctors, rather than "othering" the character by putting her into a less competitive slot.

Doctor Who will formally introduce its first-ever female Doctor this October, and on a new night. And now we know when Jodie Whittaker's debut proper will hit our screens, with the confirmation that Series 11 will premiere on BBC One on 7 October. It has also been announced that the premiere is titled "The Woman Who Fell to Earth". The next era starts with the The Woman Who Fell to Earth episode. (Also, move the sofa away from the wall so parents can hide behind it during the scary bits). This will mean that it will air in the early afternoon - the BBC has yet to confirm the timeslot - while being repeated in a new regular primetime evening slot. The long-running sci-fi series will make its debut on Sunday, October 7. It's going to be anything but business as usual when the Doctor returns this fall, that much is clear. It's an appropriate title given that in the latest Season 11 promo (and this GIF), Thirteen looks to be catching her breath after literally falling to the ground. Chibnall had this to say about the show's upcoming premiere.

"New Doctor, new home!" said showrunner Chris Chibnall, in a statement.

Nishikori, Osaka give Japan historic tennis day at US Open
On Wednesday, Osaka only needed 12 winners because a whopping 31 of her other points came via unforced errors by Tsurenko. Nishikori said this week that he was nervous once that match began, but this one was nothing like that day.

While Saturday nights are often seen as the showcase for some of TV's biggest shows, in recent years Sunday night programmes have often delivered some of the week's highest ratings.

Yasmin (Mandip Gill), Ryan (Tosin Cole) and Graham (Bradley Walsh) will be joining the series as the Thirteenth Doctor's new companions.
