But don’t get too comfortable with this new schedule. Episode 3 will air on January 12 at 8 p.m. Eastern on BBC America, but it won’t be a lighthearted watch. In fact, it might be the scariest episode of the season or of any Doctor Who. Showrunner Chris Chibnall told Radio Times that this one is going to be terrifying. It’ll be called Orphan 55 and it was written by Ed Hime, who also wrote It Takes You Away in 2018.

Chibnall told Radio Times: “there are some monsters in that that are terrifying! They were there on-set, they’re practical monsters.”

Jodie Whittaker said about the monsters: “I was actually really scared when I saw one of them – I bricked it, I proper bricked it!” Tosin Cole and Bradley Walsh also told Radio Times that they were scared during filming, so this is going to be pretty intense.

Another fun piece of information: James Buckley of White Gold and The Inbetweeners will be appearing in the series sometime this season, Digital Spy reported.
