Doctor Who Begins Filming Series 13

The BBC has announced the start of production on the thirteenth season of Doctor Who. The COVID-19 safety protocols in place mean that filming takes longer, so the studio has reduced the episode count to eight (not counting the upcoming "Revolution of the Daleks," but possibly counting the holiday special after that). Showrunner Chris Chibnall commented,
In this strangest of years, the Doctor Who production team have worked wonders to get the show back into production. We’re thrilled to be back making the show. 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. But rest assured, the ambition, humor, fun and scares you expect from Doctor Who will all still be firmly in place. For everyone around the world, this is a challenging period – but the Doctor never shirks from a challenge!
Executive producer Matt Strevens said,
We are so thrilled to have unlocked the TARDIS, dusted down the sonic and be able to start filming again for the next season of Doctor Who. The amazing production team, crew and cast have worked wonders to get us shooting again in these challenging times. It’s going to be as fun-filled and action-packed as ever – with plenty of surprises.
