Doctor Who announced to fans it would be returning with series 12 in 2020. While many wait eagerly to find out what is going to happen to The Doctor (played by Jodie Whittaker) and her team, the official Twitter account has dropped a sneak preview.
A teaser released on the official Doctor Who Twitter account has driven fans into speculation overdrive, as it hints at a return for Jodie Whittaker in two weeks’ time.
This has come as a major surprise as The Doctor, last seen on New Year’s Day, wasn’t set to be seen on screen until 2020.
The trailer, which appeared on Sunday night, shows the TARDIS materialising in deep space before spinning off and leaving the words, ‘Watch this space’ lingering in the stars.
The fifteen-second clip ends with the show’s logo appearing along with the phrase, ‘Coming soon’.
At the moment there appears to be no room in the BBC One schedule on 23rd November for the show’s return, with game show The Hit List, smash-hit Strictly Come Dancing, and comedy juggernaut Michael McIntyre’s Big Show dominating the Saturday night.
The release of the trailer follows another teaser which surfaced on the official Twitter feed on Halloween.
Fans were again told to “Watch this space” and the picture chose a more dramatic and less colourful tone than previous shots of Whittaker’s Doctor.
Rather than the bright colours which have characterised her Doctor in the past, the picture shows her in shadow, backlit by the TARDIS control room as she enters a dark environment.
