Doctor Who is set to RETURN on New Year’s Day as the twelfth season kicks off with two-part special Spyfall

Doctor Who is set to return on New Year’s Day, the BBC confirmed on Monday.

The hotly-anticipated twelfth season of the show will kick off on BBC One with an action-packed two-part special episode, named Spyfall.

Written by showrunner Chris Chibnall, the blockbuster will see Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor return with a bang, as she and friends Ryan (Tosin Cole), Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Graham (Bradley Walsh) head out on another adventure.

Following the New Year’s Day extravaganza, the 10-part series will return to its usual Sunday night timeslot.

Last month, it was revealed that Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry were set to join the cast of Doctor Who for its new season.

Who bosses have remained tight-lipped about the nature of Stephen and Lenny’s characters, but they are expected to play prominent roles in the much-anticipated new series.

Speaking about his guest stint Stephen said: ‘Short of being picked for a British space exploration programme and I readily concede that I’m past the age where I’d be considered (if I was ever the right age for such a posting) – then being in an episode of Doctor Who will certainly do as a very sweet second-place excitement.’

Lenny added: ‘It was absolutely brilliant to be welcomed into the fantastical world of Doctor Who. 

‘The nearest I have been to the TARDIS was when I played the Caribbean Doctor in the Lenny Henry Show , so as a life-long (hiding behind the sofa type) Doctor Who fan this is a very special moment for me.’

The BBC also confirmed that Goran Višnjić and Robert Glenister will also join the thirteenth Time Lord when the show returns in early 2020.

It is not Robert’s first time in the TARDIS as he first appeared on the show in 1984, but he is set to take on a new role, while it is Goran’s Doctor Who debut.

In May, Jodie was spotted coming face-to-face with The Judoon during filming at Gloucester Cathedral for the first time.

The rhino-headed space police first appeared on Doctor Who in 2007 when they transported a London hospital to the moon.

Historically, The Judoon has had an important role in Doctor Who after they brought on the meeting between the tenth Doctor and his companion Martha Jones.
