I wasn't expecting the premiere to be so soon!
Doctor Who News Wrote:The Thirteenth Doctor is in her TARDIS on her way back to BBC One for a thrilling ten-part series which will land on New Year’s Day 2020, with subsequent episodes airing on Sundays.

Starting with a blockbuster action packed two-part episode entitled Spyfall, the Thirteenth Doctor is well and truly back with a bang. As Jodie Whittaker takes charge of the TARDIS once again, the Doctor will be joined by her friends Tosin Cole (Ryan), Mandip Gill (Yaz) and Bradley Walsh (Graham). The twelfth series will also welcome a host of famous faces including Stephen Fry, Sir Lenny Henry CBE, Robert Glenister and Goran Višnjić to name just a few.

Add to that some familiar faces including the Judoon and the Cybermen, series twelve is set to be an epic action packed rollercoaster for everyone, just don’t stray too far from behind the sofa...

Spyfall has been written by Chris Chibnall, Showrunner.

One of the most consistently confusing Chibnall era decisions so far is they insist there's no Christmas special, they watch everyone complain, then later announce that there is actually a special or episode but it will be released five days after Christmas. I can't be the only one who doesn't care about the technicality that it's not actually Christmas.

It's new Who. It's wintertime. Should be good enough. In recent years past, the show went on hiatus so much that a Christmas special was sometimes the only hope of a new episode. I suspect fan reactions are at least in part informed by the inconsistent release schedule.

Just seems like BBC is making it difficult for themselves. Instead of even talking about a Christmas special, they could say something like "we're going in a different direction to try to deliver full seasons in a more reasonable time frame, which sadly conflicts with practices that have become considered traditional for our series. Sorry for the change, but please trust us. Reinvention is a crucial part of keeping the show relevant, and more episodes are coming sooner than you might expect."

Something like that would be simple and would seemingly avoid a lot of the gossip and bad word of mouth generated by just saying "nope, no Christmas special this year either".

Here's your BBC ONE New Year's Day schedule, Doctor Who and Moffat/Gatiss Dracula on the same night, with dreary Eastenders sandwiched in between
