We’re back! Apparently Chibnall is going to have everything on super lockdown under his watch, so spoilers might not leak out like previous years. He’s already asked for this pic of Jodie in Peter’s costume to be taken down, but it was thankfully saved before deletion.

Look, if one section is in 1968 there’d better be a reference to The Invasion and an attempt to fix UNIT dating.

I don’t know, it is a sombre moment (and clearly horror on the soldier’s part), but it quickly gets undercut by comedy.

I can definitely hear some Hartnell’s cheekiness on ‘I thought you’d be younger’. He’s not above a jab like that.

Alan Cumming to play James I in an upcoming ep.

Lance Parkin had this great idea about it:

Lance Parkin posted:

You know what would be brilliant? If they did this as a re-run of the Tennant/Elizabeth I thing, but now it's Jodie, so they do it with James I, and James I is like 'I usually go for guys' and she said 'no problem, I'm usually a guy' and then the next scene is them on their wedding night. And, I dunno, then they fight witches or the Gunpowder Plot or something, if that's not fifty minutes' worth of material.

This Radio Times article suggests we’re getting an episode set in India’s past too, to explore the backgrounds of both companions.

They’re currently filming in Spain, which is doubling for India.

quote:

Series 11 has been filming in Granada, southern Spain for the past few days. Reports stated that filming specifically took place in La Calahorra near the famous Castillo de La Calahorra. A lot of the architecture in the region was built by the Moors and their designs are not too dissimilar to the architecture of old Islamic era India.

I was on a different forum, and once I got past the numerous "The show is ruined" posts, once particular hot take I saw was that she shouldn't have been cast because Chibs had worked with her before, and that the BBC should've have made him cast someone else.

By that logic, neither Eccles not Tennant...?
