The BBC confirmed that the next season of Doctor Who is going to premiere on October 7th. The network is moving the show to a new night, Sunday, and it’s being billed as a new era for the series which has predominantly stuck to Saturday nights in the past.

The evening time slot for broadcast in the United Kingdom has not yet been announced. The BBC America network will premiere the show twice once in the afternoon as a simulcast with the UK premiere and the other at a conventional prime-time hour.

Whittaker, who is the first woman to play this role, is taking over from Peter Capaldi. Peter Moffat, the longtime showrunner, has been replaced by Chris Chibnall. The new doctor will be joined by new companions on her adventures. They include Graham, Yasmin, and Ryan. The new characters were first introduced in the trailers for the upcoming season that were released during the World Cup.
