Doctor Who series 11: filming has wrapped

The BBC have announced that filming on Jodie Whittaker’s maiden series in the TARDIS has officially wrapped.

The official Doctor Who Twitter announced the event in a tweet that looked something like this:

With filming now done and dusted we expect Chris Chibnall and company will be hard at work polishing the series for our eyes this autumn. At a BBC Worldwide Showcase event in Liverpool earlier this year October was advertised as the air date, and we imagine we’ll get a more exact date closer to the time.

Doctor Who series 11 will be Jodie Whittaker’s first and marks the first time the Doctor has been portrayed by a woman. Alongside her will be Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill as the new incarnation’s faithful companions, Graham, Ryan and Yaz, respectively.

As we recently reported, filming for series 11 took place in South Africa in the midst of a drought. The country is rumoured to stand in for 1950s America as the Doctor and her friends encounter civil rights activist Rosa Parks. It’s hearsay at the moment but we like the sound of it.

With the shoot now over we imagine it won’t be long until series 11’s publicity trail gets underway, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
