So I hear that there’s not actually going to be a season this year, and just when I finally got over my feelings about the 50th anniversary.
Well this can not stand. So it won’t. And so for the next 14 weeks, I am going to be posting artifacts and capsule descriptions for Series 3 of the second revival of Doctor Who, torn from my own personal pocket universe, to appear here week by week as they air, in real time.
As Wikipedia would say:
The third series of the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who began filming in June 2016, for an airdate of late 2016. This series will be the third to air following the programme’s revival in 2013, and will be the thirty-seventh season overall.
On May 24, 2016, Gillian Anderson revealed that she would be leaving Doctor Who and that the Doctor would regenerate in the series finale. The series will be her third as the Eleventh Doctor, the most recent incarnation of the Doctor, an alien Time Lord who travels through time and space in her TARDIS, which appears to be a British police box on the outside. It also stars Arthur Darvill as the Doctor’s companion Colin Fairway, for his third and final series in the role. The series also stars Faye Marsay as Sammy Lake, who had been introduced in the 2015 Christmas Special, “The Present Christmas”.
The 14-episode series is scheduled to air from October 15, 2016 through January 6, 2017, and will include special episodes for Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Epiphany.
