Jodie Whittaker has been spotted on the Knap Beach filming series 13 of Doctor Who today.

TV and crew vehicles appeared in the lower Barry Island car park on Monday morning, before eagle-eyed walkers spotted the Doctor and Weeping Angel on the Knap Beach around lunchtime.

There is no official premier date for series thirteen just yet, but fans are expecting to see the series on air in autumn or winter 2021.


Following character Ryan (Tosin Cole) and Graham’s (Bradley Walsh) decision to jump ship in ‘Revolution of the Daleks’, it was announced that comedian and actor John Bishop is taking their place in the TARDIS next series as new character Dan.

The news came in a 30-second teaser that opened on the Liverpool waterfront before showing Bishop packing up a transit van and being read aloud his horoscope by a builder colleague.
