New episodes land on BBC One on August 17

However, some viewers were left confused as series ten, which last aired on June 22, only contained seven episodes. One fan wrote in the comments: "New series? But season ten only had seven episodes where others have double that if not more? Was this only a Covid issue or a series pattern going forward?"

On the BBC's website, it states that the new episode, which will air on August 17, is the eighth episode of series ten, rather than the first instalment of a new season.
