In the New year eve, we saw one particular episode “Resolution” where we watched a guest appearance from GCHQ. However, now you won’t get any Christmas episode of Doctor Who in 2019.
Jodie is very excited to return as the Time Lord for upcoming Series, and she said “I really can’t wait to step back in and get to work again. It’s such an incredible role. It’s been an extraordinary journey so far, and I’m not quite ready to hand it over yet.”

BBC film crew is going to Gloucestershire for filming the scenes for the Series on 22 May and 23 May. The team is returning to Cathedral after 11 years. David Tennant filmed the Christmas 2008 episode of the show in the same grounds.

What were the Ratings of Doctor Who Series 11?
Last year, when BBC broadcasted its Series 11, then channel got fantastic response with a consolidated audience of 11 million viewers. iPlayer users requested its episode 3.7 million times on iPlayer. It was rated among the top 10 tv shows in 2018.
The Series was normally broadcasted on Saturday night, but then it switched to Sunday night slot. This switch causes a decrease in its audience from 11 million viewers to 6.42 million viewers.It was in the top 10 programmes of 2018.
When you checked its audience appreciation index in 2018, then it was quite high (between 79 and 83 percent).
Saturday or Sunday? Which day show will go on-air?
Traditionally, this show is broadcasted on Saturday night, but last year it switched to Sunday. However, this switch became the main reason for its rating decline last year. This year, BBC director general decided to telecast Doctor Who Series 12 on Saturday as per its old tradition.
An insider revealed: “There is a feeling family are freer to watch on Saturdays than Sundays when kids have homework to finish.
“While the show rated well overall, there were concerns over the decline in audience.
“Returning to Saturdays is being discussed as a likely option.”
