Time Lord Jodie Whittaker and her three companions were last seen saving the world once again on New Year’s Day this year – and the show ended with confirmation that it would be an entire year before they came back.

However, the Daily Star has reported that the show may return for a festive special – and with previous episodes being filmed in Sheffield, it could be the base for shooting once again.

The upcoming series will be the second with Jodie’s Doctor, the thirteenth in the show’s run.

Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill will also return for the second series featuring the Yorkshire born actress.
