Doctor Who: Chris Chibnall’s Approach To Spoilers Has Made The Show Exciting Again

The most striking of those moments was the breathtaking cliffs in the first part of Spyfall. A trailer was released prior to airing, stating that Cyberman would be returning for season 12. During Spyfall, the mysterious and heavenly Cassavan sometimes recalls images of the ghostly cybermen from the “Army of Ghosts” story of the 10th Doctor and Rose. Aired on New Year’s Day, exactly a year after Chibnall shocked Dalek, an audience could be forgiven for thinking a cyberman was behind the attack on global intelligence. It was a great trick that worked well when Sacha Dhawan’s O pretense was gone and the Doctor’s nemesis, the Master, was revealed.

This proves that Chris Chibnall and his team know the delicate balance between promise television and promotion. For example, at the end of the 2022 New Year’s Special, it was announced that the Sea Devil will return in the next episode without notice. Likewise, the trailer for the end of The Legend of the Sea Demons revealed that ’80s colleagues Tegan and Ace will return for the finale of Jodie Whittaker. This revelation was talked about more in the hours after it aired than the episode itself, but it wouldn’t be as exciting as it is now without pre-promotion or already captivated TV viewers. While Chris Chipnall and Jodie Whitaker prepare to leave Doctor WhoIt’s fair to say that the show reintroduced the shock and surprise that should continue to be an essential spectacle.

The most obvious of these moments was the jaw-dropping cliffhanger to part one of “Spyfall”. Prior to airing, a trailer was released which revealed that the Cybermen would be back at some point in the twelfth season. Throughout “Spyfall” the mysterious, ethereal, Kassavans occasionally recall the imagery of the ghostly Cybermen in the Tenth Doctor and Rose story “Army of Ghosts”. Airing on New Year’s Day, exactly one year after Chibnall brought back a surprise Dalek, audiences could be forgiven for thinking the Cybermen were behind the attacks on global intelligence services. It was a masterful piece of misdirection that paid off handsomely when the pretense of Sacha Dhawan’s O fell away to reveal the Doctor’s arch-nemesis, the Master.
It proves that Chris Chibnall and his team are acutely aware of the delicate balance between appointment television and promotion. For example, at the end of 2022’s New Year’s special, they revealed that, without prior warning, the Sea Devils would return in the next episode. Similarly, the trailer at the end of “Legend of the Sea Devils” revealed that 80s companions Tegan and Ace would be returning for Jodie Whittaker’s last episode. These reveals were more talked about than the episodes themselves in the hours that followed their broadcast, but without prior promotion, or an already captive television audience, they wouldn’t have been nearly as exciting as they were. As Chris Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker prepare to leave Doctor Who, it’s fair to say that they’ve reintroduced the shocks and surprises that the show needs to continue being essential viewing.
