The first agenda to note today is simply this: Season 13, otherwise known as Doctor Who: Flux, is airing on the BBC this weekend! There will be a chance here to have a totally new and exciting story spread over multiple episodes. While Tosin Cole and Bradley Walsh have each left the show, there’s a new face to come in Dan, played by comedian John Bishop.
Now let’s take a moment to look past that. There are a few specials currently confirmed for 2022, and the end of this one will mark the end for Jodie Whittaker as Doctor and Chris Chibnall as showrunner. After that, the iconic EP Russell T. Davies will return to the schedule and he will presumably be tasked with finding the next Doctor.
Does that mean that he will also bring new companions on board? Talk to Weekly entertainment Ahead of this weekend’s premiere, here’s what Mandip Gill had to say about his own future:
Well, one, I can’t confirm that, but, two, there just aren’t any rules to it. The companions stay thereafter. We haven’t finished shooting these episodes yet, it can go either way. Audiences are really good at going there, oh, it’s a whole new cast and new mates and they’re okay with that. And they are also amazing to go, oh yeah, this is a companion of the last doctor, that also makes sense. So who knows? But just know that I had the most amazing time.
Certainly, there is a part of us that thinks it would be appropriate to see Gill’s Yaz go alongside Jodie’s version of The Doctor; yet, there might also be a big plan in place for her alongside the new doctor! By watching this show for so many years, we have learned to trust the people in power enough.
