Doctor Who announces Coronation Street and Line of Duty stars joining season 13 Flux

THE Doctor is back, and she is bringing with her a whole host of TV talent.

Jodie Whittaker, who was the first female to play the iconic role of The Doctor, is joined this season by show regular since 2018, Yas (Mandip Gill) and new TARDIS companions Dan (John Bishop) and Vinder (Jacob Anderson).

This season they will be searching for answers about the SWARM as they dodge and outwit Cybermen, Sontarns, Weeping Angels and The Ood.

Along with encountering some new monsters we will be seeing some familiar famous faces in the mix, with actors such as Line of Duty's Rochenda Sandall and Craig Parkinson, Coronation Street's Sue Jenkins and The End of the F***ing World's Steve Oram joining the cast.

Season 13 Doctor Who: Flux premieres on Sunday 31 October, and the trailer already has fans on the edge of their seats.

"The Flux is coming," Jodie says in a short 20-second teaser that dropped to 1.57million fans on the official Doctor Who Youtube channel on 9 October.

She continues: "It's bringing with it the Sontarans, Weeping Angels, creatures known as The Ravages and enemies from across the universe. This is the fight of our lives."

With guest roles and script secrets under lock and key, the BBC have confirmed that Small Axe's Sam Spruell, Ripper Street star Craige Els, Innocent actress Nadia Albina, Two Doors Down star Jonathan Watson and Brookside's Paul Broughton will appear in the series too.

The cast – well, most of them – were revealed at a recent press event where the six-part serial from showrunner Chris Chibnall was discussed.

It was here that Chris also revealed that Pirates of the Caribbean actor Kevin McNally, Being Human's Annabel Scholey, and Damned's Sara Powell are also all set to guest appear this season.

"There's some people we might not want to say," Chris said.

When Chris announced Craig Parkinson would be appearing, Jodie spoke out and made sure Chris kept quiet in case he potentially let "a secret" slip.

"Oh, not now," Chris batted back.

He later went on to say: "I'm sure I'm leaving some people out – well, I know I'm leaving some people out, deliberately."

With the injection of more British TV talent, the show's new season may cast a wider net and pull in some of the 12.8 million viewers who watched the finale of Line of Duty.

Airing on BBC One here in the UK on 31 October, the show will premiere on BBC America in the US, and if you are new to the show, you can catch seasons 1-12 on several streaming platforms, including BBC iPlayer and Netflix.
