If you happen to’re unhappy that Jodie Whittaker has solely two extra outings because the Thirteenth Physician left earlier than she regenerates into a brand new (and as but undisclosed) incarnation, I’ve some solace for you: there’s really another story coming very quickly, it is simply not on TV.

The sequence can be titled Physician Who: Redacted, and follows three younger ladies linked by a shared fascination with sightings of a mysterious girl in a Blue Police Field. The BBC’s official synopsis for the sequence reads as follows:

,Physician Who: Redacted follows Cleo, Abby, and Shawna—three broke college drop-outs from totally different cities throughout the UK who stay linked through their paranormal conspiracy podcast, ‘The Blue Field Information’. The trio speculate over Abby’s favourite conspiracy concept – intent on discovering out the reality behind the mysterious ‘Blue Field’ that retains cropping up throughout historical past. What if this random police public name field was really an alien ship?

“They do not know who the Physician is, or if aliens are actual, however quickly discover themselves caught in a supernatural conspiracy as they study that everybody who’s ever met the Physician is disappearing and being forgotten. Primarily, they’re being redacted from actuality. The Blue Field Information is so unsuccessful that our heroes are the final ones to be affected by the redaction, making Cleo, Abby, and Shawna the world’s solely hope. Now it is a race towards time to uncover the reality.”

I need to admit my eyes rolled a bit on the thought of ​​a TARDIS-centric conspiracy podcast, however the concept that the trio are presently protected from being erased from existence as a result of nobody listens to their podcast has charmed me. However the synopsis continues (and is edited barely for readability)!

“When Cleo’s brother Jordan (performed by comic Jacob Hawley) will get redacted, they spend the remainder of the sequence looking for him. Within the meantime, Cleo is coping with a mom who kicked her out for being trans when she was 16, while looking for out what occurred to her Dad who mysteriously ‘disappeared’ when she was a child. Because the sequence unfolds we discover Abby (the resident believer) and Shawna (the skeptic) grapple with their very own tribulations on the sting of a will-they, received’t-they romance, regardless of Abby’s controlling boyfriend.”

Redacted will star trans activist Charlie Craggs as Cleo, Lois Chimimba as Abby, and Holly Quin-Ankrah as Shawna, in addition to previous Who stars Jemma Redgrave as Kate Lethbridge-Stewart, Ingrid Oliver as Petronella Osgood, and Anjli Mohindra as The Sarah Jane Adventures‘ Rani Chandra. The Silurian detective Madame Vastra may even make an look however can be voiced by Good Omens‘ Doon Mackichan as an alternative of the TV actor Neve McIntosh. The primary a part of the 10-episode sequence will premiere on April 17, simply after the second particular, Legend of the Sea Devilspremieres on BBC America.
