Chris, who most recently steered ‘Broadchurch’ through its final series, is currently putting together plans for ‘Doctor Who’ ahead of his first episodes, which will air in 2018.
According to the Mirror, he’s redesigning a number of key elements, giving the Tardis and the sonic screwdriver new looks.
Jodie will make her debut in this year’s Christmas episode, as Peter Capaldi’s character regenerates.
Bosses are yet to reveal who Jodie’s assistant will be, but Bradley Walsh did address speculation that he could be taking on the role earlier this year.
