The eleventh season will also be the first with Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor. For the run of the season, Doctor Who will premiere regularly on BBC AMERICA on its new marquee night on Sundays. Doctor Who season 11 will air on the BBC One in the United Kingdom and on BBC America in the U.S. In addition to the premiere date announcement, the BBC also released a brief teaser to hype up the season 11 debut, which you can check out for yourself below. The season premiere's title will be "The Woman Who Fell to Earth".

But while we wait to find out the exact details of when Doctor Who returns, we can at least start an official countdown. (Also, move the sofa away from the wall so parents can hide behind it during the scary bits).

Joining Whittaker for Season 11 are the Thirteenth Doctor's three (!) new companions: Bradley Walsh (Law & Order: UK) as Graham, Tosin Cole (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Ryan and Mandip Gill (Hollyoaks) as Yasmin.

As well as marking the first time the main character has been played by a woman in the nearly 55-year history of the show, this latest season will be the first time it has been broadcast in the United Kingdom on a Sunday evening (although it has shown in New Zealand on that day of the week for the last few years).

The most watched programme of 2017 was BBC One's Blue Planet II, which was broadcast on a Sunday night. That means we can officially confirm that Season 11 will premiere on Space the same day. Chibnall said in a statement.

Jodie Whittaker's Doctor Who tenure will begin in New Zealand on Monday, October 8.

With new showrunner Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch) at the helm, the upcoming season is poised to be the beginning of a truly new era.
