I don't know if Bradley will be back, really. I know his CV said he was in S13 but that could be the special and that's it. Jodie's got her third season next year. Unless she does more than any other modern Doc it'll probably be her last...does anyone think "The Fam" stays with her in full? We know Tosin is off to the US for a new show. I can see them all leaving in the special, frankly then a new status quo for S13. It'll need a freshen up for then anyway, one would think.

Honestly I have a suspicion that they’ll all end up sticking around for Series 13.
I thought Tosin was a goner but if Series 13 doesn’t start filming until late then perhaps he’ll manage to fit both in.
I’d rather they left (or at least of them) in the upcoming special but something tells me they might not. Especially with everyone speculating that they’re gonna leave in this episode and then that episode and then another episode and they never do.
I bet it’ll be set around Christmas/New Years for the Fam and they’ll have thought the Doctor has been dead for nearly a year.
Ryan will have settled back into his old life, I wouldn’t be shocked if Graham ended up in a relationship with Ravio after the Timeless Children and finally managed to get over his guilt about Grace, while Yaz slowly goes insane because she’s capable of so much more than she’s allowed to do in her job and is desperate to get back into the wider universe,
Yeah, I heard. On one hand I'm not surprised about Tosin. He hasn't added much to the show and I know he's been cast in something else. I haven't loved his character so I'm not saddened at all by him leaving. Bradley Walsh on the other hand is really sad. He has been such a gift to Doctor Who. I don't think they did enough with him this season, but I still loved almost every scene he was in. I hope it's only Mandip and no one else. I'd love to see what she could do with more material.

So it seems like, knock on wood, shooting is still on track for summer. Now, obviously this could change, depending on how things go here in the UK.
Indeed, pretty much all TV is in the same situation: planning behind the scenes, waiting for movement restrictions to lift, and then seeing if it explodes again. If it doesn't, then there may be some small steps forward. Soaps (guys who I've talked to) are developing strategies to shoot and also keep elderly actors off as much as possible, and I imagine how they'll handle it may guide others decisions on other dramas. There's talk also of minuscule/skeleton crews for filming, trying to cut back tightness on sets, which on a VFX heavy show like Who, is going to be a challenge. How can you safely get an actor into elaborate makeup and/or suits? Or stunts? Or do practical effects? Not to mention, travel will likely remain a challenge too - obviously the BBC can't just charter planes for every show, so it may be possible, if not probable, that Who stays on home turf this year. Possibly the first series in years to do so.
