Doctor Who: Flux Is Just a Few Weeks Away

“The Flux is coming.” With a tiny teaser, the BBC has upped the stakes for Jodie Whittaker’s final Doctor Who season. It’s a short one, but in the span of twenty seconds, Whittaker’s Doctor has a lot to say. The Sontarans, the Weeping Angels, the Ravages (not Ravagers)—they’re all on their way. And something is stressing out the two companions behind her: Yaz (Mandip Gill) and new companion Dan (John Bishop).

Thankfully, we don’t have long to wait to find out what’s stirring up trouble this time (or who the Doctor is trying to contact!). The premiere of Doctor Who: Flux, as they’re calling this season, is on October 31st.

Flux will be just eight episodes long, and tell one overarching story. A slightly longer teaser back in July didn’t reveal much more, other than Yaz saying “You’re hiding something” to the Doctor, and a better look at new faces Dan and Vinder (Game of Thrones‘ Jacob Anderson).

Season thirteen will be a farewell run for Whittaker and showrunner Chris Chibnall, though we also get three specials before that run is over. After that, Russell T Davies is back at the helm, though there’s no word on who might pick up Whittaker’s rainbow shirt and hooded coat.

Doctor Who: Flux premieres on Halloween.
