Doctor Who Series 13 is Titled ‘Flux’ and Starts On Halloween

Flux. That’s the official title of the six-episode Doctor Who series 13, which starts airing on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and BBC America right at the end of this month. In the clip below, you’ll hear the Doctor warn that “The Flux is coming” and bringing with it monsters galore. (Our first thought was ‘flux’ as in something that’s constantly changing rather than the stuff you smear around copper pipes before welding them together, though let’s keep an open mind. Maybe this series finds the TARDIS needing its systems replaced by an intergalactic plumber?)

It’s a very Doctor Who-y name for a villain, ‘Flux’. It describes the show itself both over the years and at this precise moment, with one showrunner outgoing and none other than Russell T. Davies incoming, bringing a new Doctor with him. The word describes the Doctor themself, their many incarnations and ever-changing personal history. It also conjures up time-travel, thanks to Doc Emmett Brown’s flux capacitator and its various science-related mentions across the Star Trek franchise.

Additionally, it’s part of Doctor Who lore, though a pretty esoteric part concerned with fairly niche spinoff media. Lawrence Miles’ 1997 Eighth Doctor novel Alien Bodies introduced the idea of the Time Lords’ Future War, which led to the definition of a ‘Flux’ as a person whose history is constantly changing – as good a description of the Doctor as any after Series 12’s finale. This version though, sounds like a baddie in league with returning monsters and a new foe.

Let’s take a look at Doctor Who: Flux‘s first proper teaser:
