If you're wonder what Doctor Who's linear competition will be, to avoid it clashing with Eurovision, ITV have shifted Britain's Got Talent to Sunday night, meaning Doctor Who will face In For A Penny and In With A Shout on ITV1.

In the UK, the first two new episodes of the season will premiere at 00:00 on 11 May on BBC iPlayer, and then on BBC One later that day. Episodes will drop on BBC iPlayer followed by a primetime slot on BBC One each week following that.

Outside the UK, Doctor Who begins streaming 10 May at 7pm ET on Disney+ where available, giving audiences a simultaneous global launch.
