Chris Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker to participate in Doctor Who event at BBC Studios Showcase

Posted Filed under

Showrunner Chris Chibnall and thirteenth Doctor actress Jodie Whittaker will discuss the “legacy and future of the quintessentially British Time Lord” at the center of the television show Doctor Who in a scripted session held at the 2020 BBC Studios Showcase mid February.

BBC Studios Showcase is an invitation-only event in Liverpool where BBC Studios’ sales clients and production partners see previews of BBC Studios programmes, meet actors, creatives and decision makers and are treated to lavish evening events.

Chris Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker participated in the 2018 Showcase while Doctor Who Series 11 was still in production, ahead of the October 7, 2018 series premiere.

Because there were no upcoming episodes of Doctor Who after February 2019,  there were no related screenings, sessions or panels at the 2019 BBC Studios Showcase but the thirteenth Doctor wax sculpture from Madame Tussauds in Blackpool was on display.

The 2020 Showcase will occur before the last three episodes of Doctor Who Series 12 air.

The 2020 BBC Studios showcase will take place from Sunday, February 9 to Wednesday, February 12 at ACC Liverpool conference centre. The exact date and time of the Doctor Who session is not announced publicly by BBC Studios.
