Doctor Who has finally made a deal with Alan Cumming, but not for the title role. Instead, reports confirm that Cumming may recur as a new “nice” baddie for series star Jodie Whittaker, appearing in Season 11 this fall.
New Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker has a world of work ahead to follow Peter Capaldi, but that work shouldn’t include equal pay. As Whittaker herself put it, she only took the TARDIS gig after The BBC agreed to match Capaldi’s salary, and deservedly so.

Some lay groundwork more carefully than others, so which major swerves were audiences miles ahead of? From LOST to Star Trek: Discovery, we’ve sleuthed out seventeen that savvy viewers put together long before showrunners intended.
No Doctor Who fan is ready to say goodbye to Peter Capaldi, though we’ll thankfully have no less than three Doctors to help him off. See One meet Twelve in a first clip from 2017 Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time,” and feel free to add your own TARDIS design critique.
