Series 12 Spoilers, Speculation, Production News Discussion thread

Recommended Posts

There are rumors that there are some changes to the Doctor’s costume for Series 12. The first is the coat is now gray (though the current one looks gray to me), with one person saying it’s because Jodie was too cold in the first one and this one is warmer. The person also said they saw it being sold at Amazon. Whether by accident or at the UK or US store, I don’t know. The second is there will be some different t-shirts, though I don’t recall if it’s in place of or in addition to the previous t-shirts

not to nitpick, but I really dont like her pants much. Rather than showing 2 inches of upper ankle, better look would be boots.

I don't like much the little-too-short pants either (or the suspenders for that matter). Either have pull up socks or boots like you say. Yes, I know the pants are culottes and it's supposed to be that way, but I personally don't like the length

Love the coat though and I like the t-shirts. The only time I thought the t-shirt didn't look good was in Rosa, where it looked like an ill-fit, like it was too snug and it had been over-stretched

The current coat is for sale at hot topic. It seemed pretty well made so I got it for my daughter.

I don't mind the suspenders, but maybe lay off the rainbows.

The Daily Mail is claiming the BBC is considering moving the show back to its old Saturday slot for Series 12 in a bid to retain younger viewers. Given it’s the Daily Mail and it’s still pretty early, I would consider this strictly rumor at this point. Plus their article title way overstates things with “set for major shakeup”

I would love it back on Saturday night!

I wouldn’t care one way or the other as long as it doesn’t hurt ratings and BBC America shows it the same day as the UK. 

The funny thing is, Saturdays in the US is terrible for ratings for scripted shows, where for the UK, they seem to still be pretty decent

Some updates and speculation on filming:

Some fan photos with the cast and fans watching filming show Tosin and Brad in tuxes and Mandip in dark clothes and possibly tux-like doing one or more scenes and at least one scene observed by a fan with Ryan and Yaz having to ditch their phones. See the link below for pictures

There are fan photos with Jodie and pictures of the cast for World Down Syndrome Day that suggests Jodie is currently wearing a darker costume (she wears a puffy jacket in the fan pictures that covers a lot of it, but enough peeks through), with speculation and theories that the Doctor is wearing something like a tux, possibly for just the episode they are currently filming since the rest of the cast are in tuxes. See the pictures in the links below

There was a night shoot that suggested the area was made to look like Paris, so possibly a story is set in France. 

The set design in the first production block seen by fans suggested some spy or intelligence plot that might possibly be set in WWII

A guest actress for the first production block (Episode 1 and possibly 5) has been identified as Molly Harris playing Suki Cheng
