The Next Season of Doctor Who Is Going to Introduce Us to Space Babies (and Much More)


There’s a new trailer for the upcoming season of Doctor Who, and it’s full of hints, excitement, dinosaurs, Ncuti Gatwa in some incredible outfits, talking space babies, and, yes, Jinkx Monsoon. But the BBC has also released the intriguing list of episode titles, along with the writers and directors of each episode. This basically amounts to a list of hints that we’re all going to read into, for better or worse!

  • “Space Babies,” written by Russell T Davies, directed by Julie Anne Robinson
  • “The Devil’s Chord,” written by Russell T Davies, directed by Ben Chessell
  • “Boom,” written by Steven Moffat, directed by Julie Anne Robinson
  • “73 Yards,” written by Russell T Davies, directed by Dylan Holmes Williams
  • “Dot and Bubble,” written by Russell T Davies, directed by Dylan Holmes Williams
  • “Rogue,” written by Kate Herron and Briony Redman, directed by Ben Chessell
  • “The Legend of Ruby Sunday,” written by Russell T Davies, directed by Jamie Donoughue
  • “Empire of Death,” written by Russell T Davies, directed by Jamie Donoughue

It is pretty much impossible to see a Steven Moffat-penned episode with a single-word title and not think of “Blink” (even though he already wrote at least two more one-word-named episodes). The other non-Davies writers, Kate Herron and Briony Redman, are an interesting pair: Herron was the director of the first season of Loki, and Redman has so far only written short films—but she and Herron are listed on IMDb as the co-writers of the Sims movie.

As for the directors: Julie Anne Robinson has directed episodes of Bridgerton and The Good Place; Ben Chessell was director for four episodes of the excellent Aussie series Deadloch; Dylan Holmes Williams directed four episodes of Servant; and Jamie Donoughue has directed A Discovery of Witches and The Last Kingdom. All are newcomers to Who.

A sparse few details have been announced about the first two episodes: Golda Rosheuvel (Bridgerton) guest stars in “Space Babies,” and Jinkx Monsoon appears in “The Devil’s Chord” as “the Doctor’s most powerful enemy yet”—who the Doctor and Ruby encounter while visiting the ’60s and meeting The Beatles.

Along with Gatwa as the Doctor and Millie Gibson as Ruby Sunday, a very long list of actors will appear on this season of Doctor Who: Michelle Greenidge, Angela Wynter, Anita Dobson, Aneurin Barnard, Yasmin Finney, Jonathan Groff, Gwïon Morris Jones, Bonnie Langford, Genesis Lynea, Jemma Redgrave, Lenny Rush, Indira Varma, Callie Cooke, Dame Siân Phillips, Alexander Devrient, Bhav Joshi, Majid Mehdizadeh-Valoujerdy, Tachia Newall and Caoilinn Springall.

It’s going to get crowded in the TARDIS. (Just kidding! Just kidding.) Doctor Who premieres May 10th on Disney+. icon-paragraph-end
