Doctor Who returning on New Year's Day

Starting with a blockbuster, action-packed two-part episode entitled Spyfall, the Thirteenth Doctor is well and truly back with a bang.

According to a release, the show will continue airing episodes in that regular timeslot starting on January 5.

AMERICA also released today the official global trailer for Jodie Whittaker's second season as the Doctor, which introduces terrifying new monsters alongside the return of some familiar but not-so-friendly faces.

The Thirteenth Doctor is in her TARDIS on her way back to BBC One for a thrilling ten-part series which will land on New Year's Day 2020, with subsequent episodes airing on Sundays.

Additionally, BBC America and Fathom Events will host a one-night-only screening of Doctor Who's season premiere and second episode, which will be simulcast to more than 600 cinema screens nationwide on January 5 (followed by a live Q&A with Whittaker, Cole and Gill).

Whittaker and co-stars Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill will take part in a Q&A following the screening, transmitted from The Paley Center for Media in NY.

Speaking about his guest stint Stephen said: 'Short of being picked for a British space exploration programme and I readily concede that I'm past the age where I'd be considered (if I was ever the right age for such a posting) - then being in an episode of Doctor Who will certainly do as a very sweet second-place excitement'.

The show even gave fans a new trailer with even more danger and foreboding than its first. The first full trailer for the season confirmed the return of the Cybermen, among other old foes.
