The BBC have described the upcoming era of Doctor Who as an "ambitious reinvention" of the classic sci-fi series, which will be produced by BBC Studios and Bad Wolf, in partnership with Disney.

In its annual report, the BBC mentions Doctor Who seven times. Listing it as one of the major "high-impact content" highlights to come this year (only behind Eurovision and The King's coronation in May), and the highlight of the BBC's centenary celebrations last October.

Speaking of the year ahead, the BBC said: "Elsewhere on BBC One and iPlayer, Doctor Who regenerates for three 60th anniversary specials starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate, ahead of the debut of new Doctor Ncuti Gatwa, all with returning writer and showrunner Russell T Davies at the helm."

Last year, the BBC announced a deal with Disney+ to distribute the show to global audiences. In it's annual report, they state "BBC Studios has continued to find new and creative ways to generate new and additional value from IP. The BBC has partnered with Disney in a landmark distribution deal that will see the Doctor Who franchise taken to new heights globally."

They add: "We will bolster our on-screen spend with third-party investment to deliver greater value to audiences, including the first new content from our highly ambitious reinvention of Doctor Who, co-produced in partnership with Disney."

The BBC also praise Bad Wolf's "creativity" ahead of the show's launch later this year. All quotes are taken from the BBC's Annual Report, which can be found here.
