Doctor Who Moves Time and Space to Accommodate Sir David Attenborough

By Holly Brockwell on at

Who'd win in a time-based battle: the Doctor, or Sir David Attenborough?

Well, that one's been solved, and not in the direction we'd expect: Doctor Who has had to warp to a new timeslot this Sunday to make space for Attenborough's programme Dynasties (sadly not an animal version of the 80s soap opera).

On Sunday the 18th of November, you'll need to tune into BBC One at 6.30pm for Doctor Who instead of its usual timeslot of 7pm. The Strictly Come Dancing results have also done a jive jump back half an hour, and will now be on at 7.20 instead of 7.50.

Called 'Kerblam!', the Doctor Who episode will be the seventh of Jodie Whittaker's run as the Doctor, and will star Coronation Street's Julie Hesmondhalgh and comedian Lee Mack.

The Strictly results finish at 8pm, just in time for Attenborough to do his thing for an hour:
