As “Doctor Who” gears up for its highly anticipated new season this May, Disney+ and the BBC have revealed the episode titles for the new season, as well as more incredible guest stars who have jumped aboard the TARDIS for the upcoming season, and we have a new trailer, too.


The Episode Titles

Here are the titles for the episodes that will air during this first season with the Fifteenth Doctor (played by Ncuti Gatwa), along with the director and writer of each episode.

Not much in the way of episode details though…guess they don’t want to give too much away.


SPACE BABIES: Written by Russell T Davies, directed by Julie Anne Robinson

In “Space Babies,” Golda Rosheuvel (“Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story”) joins “Doctor Who” as Jocelyn, who the Doctor and Ruby meet in their first adventure in the TARDIS together.

Davies said of the casting:

“It’s been amazing to see the whole world appreciate Golda’s talents, because of “Bridgerton,” and it’s been an absolute joy to invite her to Cardiff to help launch Ncuti and Millie’s first season.”
