With Arachnids in the UK, Doctor Who (BBC America, Sundays, 8/7C) returns to one of the genres it does particularly well – horror. Time to start watching from between your fingers (or from behind your sofa)!
The eleventh season premiere of Doctor Who – introducing Jodie Whittaker as the thirteenth Doctor – produced ratings 48% higher than the previous season premiere in Nielsen live/same day ratings.
Whittaker’s Doctor also produced nearly unanimous praise from critics.
Doctor Who can be found on BBC America on Sundays (8/7C).

Jodie Whittaker says, ‘I’m The Doctor,’ in the first full trailer for season 11 of Doctor Who – and she is most definitely in charge.
Under the direction of new showrunner Chris Chibnall, Whittaker’s Doctor is the sort that says, ‘When I see people need help I never refuse.’
Doctor Who returns on its new night, Sunday, October 7th.
BBC America released a fifty-second teaser introducing the 13th Doctor’s companions – Graham, Ryan and Yasmin – during halftime of the World Cup Final.
It’s as mysterious as anything we’ve seen about the series, so far – though I suspect that not the Speed Force crackling about them.
Doctor Who returns this fall.
