Strictly Come Dancing schedule changed for Doctor Who anniversary special


Major shake-up

In a major shake-up to the schedule, Strictly Come Dancing will start later this weekend to make way for the new Doctor Who series. The BBC dancing competition, which generally airs at 7:30 p.m. on BBC One, will now kick off an hour later.

Doctor Who anniversary special

The new Doctor Who series is celebrating its 60th anniversary, and to mark the occasion, David Tennant and Catherine Tate will return to the show. A new trailer for the series was released before the first live episode of this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Strictly Come Dancing finale

With only a few contestants left on Strictly, the grand finale is fast approaching. The show started with 15 famous faces and each week, the number is whittled down until there are three left in the final. The remaining stars in the competition include Bobby Brazier and Dianne Buswell, Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola, Layton Williams and Nikita Kuzmin, Annabel Croft and Johannes Radebe, Nigel Harman and Katya Jones, and Angela Scanlon and Carlos Gu.

Strictly Come Dancing will return to our screens on Saturday, November 25, 2023, on BBC One. The public vote results will be aired the following day at 7:20 p.m. Fans can also catch up with the show on the BBC iPlayer.
