No, Doctor Who is not going to suddenly start killing everybody off (at least that we know of)
But it does look like the show is going to pull a Game of Thrones of sorts in terms of how long it will be between seasons.
The 11th season of the legendary sci-fi show ended on Sunday, but we won’t see get to see much of The Doctor next year.
BBC just announced that Season 12 of Doctor Who won’t be ready until 2020. This means that apart from a New Year’s special that will be broadcast on the very first day of 2019, the coming year will be totally free of Doctor Who.
The showrunner of Doctor Who, Chris Chibnall, tells the BBC that work on the 12th season has in fact already begun. It was recently confirmed that the 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, will be returning for Season 12.
Christmas Day is usually synonymous with Doctor Who, but there won’t be one to look forward to this holiday season. Instead, fans will have to wait until January 1 to see the festive special, which has been given the very suitable title “Resolution.”
Brace yourself for a sparse 2019 without The Doctor.
