Season 13 and beyond...?

Post by skifflebits »

So we know the "Christmas" special is all finished for this year. But has there been any word about afterward?

I know all production is off until the Covid has cleared, but is Season 13 even being written?

I seem to remember they were due to start filming towards the end of the year, although no doubt that will be impacted by COVID. I imagine they'll be hard at work on the scripts as they would be regardless of COVID, but they've quite possibly got some adjusting to do.

My only hope is that at least the writing has started. Give Chibs plenty of lead time to work on those scripts. Hate to get a season finale that felt rushed. ::cough cough::

We know it's happening. Eventually.

We know Jodie will be there.

We know Graham and Ryan are out.

Anything else is kinda unconfirmed, Yaz included.

My prediction is it bows in 2022, with filming and production starting early next year. By the prior two seasons' model, a 2021 airing is unlikely, now beginning to border on impossible if filming doesn't start before January.

I wonder if Jodie will follow Troughton's three year thing.

I have a feeling that Jodie will do the whole Chibnall era tbh. No idea how long the Chibnall era will be though. I wouldn’t be surprised if they both bow out at the end of the next series though. I can’t see Chibnall sticking around for as long as Moffat did.

I think Chibnall is supposed to have a five year plan, but does that mean literally five years? Like would last year count as one of those five since the only story was Resolution?

I would assume "five years" means "five seasons," but honestly, I hope not.

I don't hate the Chibs era like a lot of people do, but after this next season I'm ready for him to either move on or seriously up his game.

Still, plans change. Moff thought he'd have one more season with Smith, but he jumped early.
