The next installment of "Doctor Who" will have fewer but longer episodes as Jodie Whitaker takes the baton from Peter Capaldi to feature as the first female Time Lord of the sci-fi series.

The new show by BBC One will have 10 chapters two fewer than the 12 episodes the past three series have had, according to The Mirror.

The shorter series, however, is made up by longer episodes, with each episode planned to be of one-hour-long duration rather than that of the usual 45 minutes.

Spy reached out to the BBC, who declined to comment.

"Doctor Who" will air on Christmas Day in the on BBC One and BBC America in the US.
