The thirteenth series of the British science fiction television show Doctor Who, entitled Flux, will premiere soon. Chris Chibnall will serve as the series’ lead writer and executive producer for the third and last time. Before the twelfth series premiered, showrunner Chris Chibnall confirmed that the thirteenth series was in progress.
It will be the thirteenth season since the revival of the show in 2005, and the thirty-ninth overall. Shooting for the series began in November 2020 and ended in November 2021. Doctor Who season 13 photos were also recently shared by the crew’s official social media account. All of those images are included in this article. Let’s talk about everything in details to get a better understanding on this upcoming season.
Doctor Who: Flux Season 13 Release Date
The series will premiere on BBC One on October 31, 2021, and will broadcast through December 5, 2021. Flux is the title given to the six-episode series as a whole. The series will premiere on BBC America on the same day in the United States. As previously stated, the series would consist of six episodes. Which will be combined to form a single plot throughout the series.
Jamie Magnus Stone and Azhur Saleem directed the six episodes. Chibnall penned all six episodes of the show. With one episode co-written by Maxine Alderton, who had previously written for the previous season.
Showrunner Chris Chibnall Reveals Three Episodes From The Upcoming Series Would Be Removed
Because to the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on television, the series was limited to only eight episodes, down from eleven previously. This was later revealed as six episodes in the thirteenth season and two specials in 2022, with a third special commissioned for later that year as part of the BBC’s centenary celebrations.
He stated, “In this strangest of years, the Doctor Who production team have worked wonders to get the show back into production.” Adding, “Given the complexity of making Doctor Who, and with new and rigorous Covid working protocols, it’s going to take us a little longer to film each episode, meaning we expect to end up with eight episodes, rather than the usual 11.”
Doctor Who: Flux Season 13 Episode Details
For the first time since The Trial of a Time Lord (1986), and just the third time in the show’s history. The series tells a single continuous story rather than a succession of self-contained episodic narratives.
The Key to Time (1978–79) had separate serial designations. So this is the second time all episodes are covered under a single narrative numbering. Here’s a rundown of the six episodes, along with their premiere dates.
- Episode 1 – Chapter One: The Halloween Apocalypse
Air Date – 31 October, 2021
- Episode 2 – Chapter Two: War of the Sontarans
Air Date – 7 November, 2021
- Episode 3 – TBA
Air Date – 14 November, 2021
- Episode 4 – TBA
Air Date – 21 November, 2021
- Episode 5 – TBA
Air Date – 28 November, 2021
- Episode 6 – TBA
Air Date – 5 December, 2021
The thirteenth season of Doctor Who will premiere on 31st October, 2021 and conclude on 5th December, 2021.
According to Chibnall, “Before we started making it, there were times when we thought we were going to be unable to do the show under Covid conditions this year… there were two ways you could go. You could go ‘let’s do lots of tiny little episodes in one room, with no monsters,’ or we could throw down the gauntlet and do the biggest story we’ve ever done.”
The latter approach appealed to Chibnall, who described it as ‘definitely the most ambitious thing we’ve done since we’ve been on the series.’
