On the second of December, the BBC quietly released the Doctor Who premiere date for series 12. The last news we got about the show was on its anniversary when the trailer for the upcoming season was revealed. The last we knew was that the series would debut in “early 2020”. Which could’ve meant anything from January to March of 2020.
Doctor Who premiere date is set one year since the last time we saw the Doctor and companions in the New Year’s Day special. Now, we know that we will have a great New Year’s Day. I can’t think of a better way to begin 2020. Actually, the only way it could get better is if they announced the release of Star Trek: Picard to debut at the same time.
Along with the announcement, it came in the form of a new trailer, which shows that a crisis is coming. So, somehow Doctor Who is taking part of the Arrowverse “Crisis of Infinite Earths”, which would make sense. But, that is a joke, in case you thought I was serious for a moment. Judging by the comments on YouTube, many people are blaming Barry for it.
The Doctor Who season 12 trailer is full of some familiar faces like Cybermen and the Jadoon. Some familiar television faces. As previously reported, Stephen Fry (Bones) and Lenny Henry (Broadchurch) will appear in Doctor Who‘s Season 12 opener. Goran Višnjić (Timeless, E.R.) and English actor Robert Glenister (who previously appeared in four 1984 episodes of Doctor Who) have also been cast in the new season.
With the Doctor Who premiere date announced, it is just a matter of time to wait for the series to debut. For some fans, it comes a week after the final episode of The Mandalorian ends, so we can have something new to obsess on, but nothing as cute as Baby Yoda.
