Here’s how to watch Doctor Who season 13 online anywhere in the world so you don't miss a moment.

Jodie Whittaker is starring in her final full series as the Time Lord, with fans eagerly debating already who the 14th Doctor will be.

But Jodie, who made history as the first female star to take on the role, is planning to bow out in style.

Six-part story Flux sees the Doctor and Yaz (Mandip Gill) face the ultimate threat as an ancient evil attempts to break free across the universe, and new cast members will be joining the show including John Bishop as new companion Dan, and Jacob Anderson as Vinder.

The synopsis for episode one, titled The Halloween Apocalypse, is: "On Halloween, all across the universe, terrifying forces are stirring. From the Arctic Circle to deep space, an ancient evil is breaking free.

"And in present-day Liverpool, the life of Dan Lewis is about to change forever. Why is the Doctor on the trail of the fearsome Karvanista? And what is the Flux?"
