Doctor Who boss reveals season 13 filming is 'brutal' as he teases 'exciting and scary new adventures'

DOCTOR Who boss Chris Chibnall has revealed season 13 filming is 'brutal' and has teased 'exciting and scary new adventures' for the Time Lord.

Filming for the new BBC series got underway last month, with Jodie Whittaker returning to the role once again.

The cast and crew have to film under new Covid-19 health and safety regulations, and Chris has opened up about its difficulties in his Doctor Who Magazine column.

He wrote: "We are filming, I don’t think anyone on any production team right now would claim the new processes are easy.

"Making any television drama has, in one fell swoop, become more demanding than it’s ever been. And that’s before you factor in the usual Doctor Who extras of monsters, stunts and Welsh weather."

He continued: “The crew have just been through the most brutal week of weather out on location – as I write this on a Tuesday, I think they’re still soaking wet from the previous Friday.


"It has been, and will continue to be for many months ahead, a mammoth team effort.”

Despite the unfavourable conditions, Chris is really pleased with the footage that's been filmed so far.

He said: "Luckily the rushes are thrilling. Mad, exciting, funny and scary.

"And look, there’s the Doctor. There’s the TARDIS in new places, new locations.

“Just seeing that lifts the soul. She’s on new adventures. She’s back saving people and worlds.”

Chris also paid tribute to Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole, who are leaving the show after the New Year's Day episode, Revolution of the Daleks.
