By The Sport Book’s John W. McKeownThe Doctor Who Companions, Doctor Who: The Companions and Doctors Day 2020 are the latest Doctor Who series to be re-launched by Doctor Who writer John W McKean.
The series, which debuted in the United Kingdom on September 1, will continue to air on BBC One on November 2.
In its new incarnation, the show will be directed by Peter Capaldi, and star Benedict Cumberbatch, who will return to his Doctor Who role from the recent series finale.
Doctor Who fans will be able to see more of the show in the UK during Doctor Who Day on October 12, which will be a two-day event that celebrates Doctor Who and Doctor Who companions.
The Doctor, Amy and Rory will join the rest of the Companions in the first ever Doctor Who companion show, the Doctor Who Companion Adventures series.
In 2018, the series introduced Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Rory McGarvey, Rory Anderson and Jenna Coleman as companion actors.
The BBC has been looking to expand the show’s audience to a wider audience and has begun a re-run of Doctor Who in 2018, which was followed by an all-new series in 2019.
The first three episodes of Doctor War, which began airing in December, were directed by J.J. Abrams, who previously helmed the series as executive producer and writer.
It stars Idris Elba as Captain Jack Harkness, Benedict Cumbergate as the Seventh Doctor and Jenna-Louise Coleman as Clara Oswald.
The third season will premiere on BBC America on March 9.
