After the poster’s release, showrunner Chris Chibnall told The Mirror that viewers will find the show ‘scarier’ than the last.

He explained: ‘I think we’ve got some amazing monsters. It’s probably a bit scarier. And we’ve definitely got some bigger action set pieces.’

While Jodie went on to say of filming the new season: ‘One of the notes from the director was “I know you’re scared, but the Doctor would probably contain it a bit more.”‘ 

Chris also told Radio Times that he is already busy writing the next season, and declared that it was ‘categorically untrue’ that he was leaving the show.

On Thursday, Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry were confirmed to be taking on ‘major roles’ in the upcoming series, joining the show’s illustrious history of guest stars that’s ranged from Derek Jacobi to James Corden to Maisie Williams. 

As ever Who bosses are 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.’

Superstar: BBC have also announced that acting legend Sir Lenny Henry is joining the Who cast for a ‘major role,’ but bosses are staying tight-lipped about the nature of his character

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 casting news comes after BBC announced that series 12 of Doctor Who had finally finished filming, as they took to Twitter on Tuesday to post a fun behind-the-scenes teaser.
