Doctor Who is slowly heading towards its next regeneration. Jodie Whittaker has been doing the role proud for three seasons now, but a set of TV movie specials are going to end her run. But…now, we have a new addition to her run that should be fun for a lot of fans of Jodie and the Who-niverse as a whole!
There’s been an announcement of a new scripted podcast that will start on April 17th. The same day as the second TV special with Whittaker. It’s called “Doctor Who: Redacted”, here’s the plot:
“Doctor Who: Redacted follows Cleo, Abby and Shawna – three broke university drop-outs from different cities across the UK who remain connected via their paranormal conspiracy podcast, ‘The Blue Box Files’. The trio speculate over Abby’s favourite conspiracy theory – intent on finding out the truth behind the mysterious ‘Blue Box’ that keeps cropping up across history. What if this random police public call box was actually an alien ship?
“They don’t know who the Doctor is, or if aliens are real, but soon find themselves caught in a supernatural conspiracy as they learn that everyone who’s ever met the Doctor is disappearing and being forgotten. Essentially, they’re being redacted from reality. The Blue Box Files is so unsuccessful that our heroes are the last ones to be affected by the redaction, making Cleo, Abby and Shawna the world’s only hope. Now it’s a race against time to uncover the truth.”
Whittaker and other members of the Who legacy will be dropping on the show from time to time. The 10-episode series will be a fun little ride, wouldn’t you say?
