Mandip Gill confirmed that the special segment was recorded before the pandemic started. “Doctor Who” will broadcast its Christmas special this year as planned.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the special segment and season 13 of the series will be released in 2020, as filming was completed before the activities ceased.
A few days before the country stopped filming due to the pandemic, the BBC announced that it was Christmas.
The special would be called “The Daleks Revolution” and The Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and his colleagues Graham O’Brien (Bradley Walsh), Ryan Show Sinclair (Tosin Cole) and Yasmin Khan (Mandip Gill) in front of the Time Lord’s greatest enemy.
However, the coronavirus stopped all shooting in BBC programs. Fortunately, actress Mandip Gill confirmed on Thursday that the special would continue because it was recorded before the interruption started.
“I think I can say the vacation special was filmed,” Mandip Gill told Radio Times. I think that’s how he always films: You shot the special at the same time as season 12.” Still, fans will likely have to wait longer to watch season 13 of the science fiction series, as the filming should begin in the second half of this year. I think we have to wait for the guidelines,” said Mandip Gill.
I’m pretty relaxed about that. As soon as they say yes or no, I’ll know,” she concluded. The BBC confirmed that Billie Piper and Christopher Eccleston will return to the “Doctor Who” universe in the new multiplatform spin-off “Time Lord Victorious”.
He added that the New Years Day episode could have been planned so that 2019 “is not a totally Doctor Who-free year.”
The January 1 episode marks a change in the Christmas tradition as it will be the first time that Doctor Who has not been shown on Christmas Day since the drama’s return in 2005.
