Doctor Who Series 14 (or Season 1 If You Like) Titles Revealed, Plus Writers and Directors!

The titles for episodes in Doctor Who Series 14 — sometimes now called Doctor Who Season 1 — have been revealed, alongside the writers and directors of each story.

The series begins with Space Babies, written by Russell T Davies and directed by Julie Anne Robinson, followed by another Davies-scripted episode, The Devil’s Chord, directed by Ben Chessell. Both will be available on streaming on 11th May 2024.

Then, Steven Moffat returns to Doctor Who with Boom, also directed by Robinson.

Davies has further written 73 Yards and Dot and Bubble, both directed by Dylan Holmes Williams, while Rogue is written by Kate Herron and Briony Redman, and helmed by Chessell.

And the new companion, played by Millie Gibson, in Davies’ The Legend of Ruby Sunday, the first of a two-part finale, directed by Jamie Donoughue.

That time rounds out Series 14 with Empire of Death, the last episode until Christmas.

So rather unusually, showrunner Russell T Davies, has written all but two of the episodes in the 8-part run of stories — no, not especially unusual for TV as a whole but certainly so for Doctor Who. Then again, Davies has been away from the show for more than a decade now, so ideas must’ve absolutely bubbled over in the interim!

Doctor Who Series 14, starring Ncuti Gatwa as the Fifteenth Doctor, begins in May 2024, running into June.
