Worth noting the line...
"The BBC also confirmed the series will have a 10-week run of 50-minute episodes in autumn 2018, starting with a feature-length hour show for the launch."
It seems slightly odd that most episodes will be 50 minutes, instead of either 45mins or 1 hour. It'll be interesting to see what the programme length will be when shown abroad & repeated on UKTV. Looks like the number of episodes has decreased again, having originally been 12 (excluding X-Mas episodes) on the new series, then cut to 11, and now to 10.
Also I see we're going to have to wait until next Autumn until the new series. Considering Jodie Whittaker was announced back in July I assumed the next series would be in the Spring, as with the previous series. I can't help speculating that cost-cutting at the BBC may play a factor.
