Doctor Who

The fourteenth series of Doctor Who is set to premiere on 11 May 2024. It will be the fifth series led by Russell T Davies as head writer and executive producer and the first since his return to the show, having previously worked on it from 2005 to 2010. This series is set to be the fourteenth to air following the programme’s revival in 2005 and will be the fortieth season overall. The fourteenth series was announced with Davies’ return to the programme for its 60th anniversary in 2023 and beyond, with Bad Wolf becoming a co-producer for the series. The series is referred to in marketing and promotional material as “Season One” following the production changes and the acquisition of Doctor Whos international broadcasting rights by Disney+.

The series stars Ncuti Gatwa as the Fifteenth Doctor, a new incarnation of the Doctor. The Fifteenth Doctor was introduced in “The Giggle” (2023) through a “bi-generation“, in which he split from his predecessor, the Fourteenth Doctor (David Tennant), rather than replacing him. The series also introduces Millie Gibson as the Doctor’s newest companion, Ruby Sunday.

The series, which was preceded by a Christmas episode on 25 December 2023, will consist of eight episodes, which have been directed by Julie Anne Robinson, Ben Chessell, Dylan Holmes Williams, and Jamie Donoughue. Alongside Davies, who wrote six of the episodes, the writers include Kate Herron, Briony Redman, and former showrunner and head writer Steven Moffat. Filming began in December 2022 and concluded in July 2023, with production moving from to Wolf Studios Wales.
