Production NOTES

The Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) will encounter the Judoon when the series returns in 2020.

The Judoon are back. I love typing those words. The Judoon are back! They’re trending on Twitter and getting full pages of coverage in the national press. The space rhino police are news! Doctor Who is bonkers. The best bonkers around. They’re also our first official picture release for this series. Knowing that we’d be filming in broad daylight with Judoon on the streets of Gloucester, we made a plan to release an official photo with the Doctor (oof, she looks cross, why would she be looking cross?) the night before. (Though I must admit I hadn’t clocked it was being released at the exact start time of episode two of Russell T Davies’ amazing Years and Years on BBC One. Eek. Sorry, Russell!)
