Catch A Glimpse Of Jodie Whittaker And Her Companion In New Doctor Who Set Pics


Incoming Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker has been pictured filming a nighttime scene with her new companion, Graham (The Chase‘s Bradley Walsh).

Said to be completely unrelated to next month’s Christmas Special, which will herald our first true look at Whittaker in action, the prying eyes of the Daily Mail managed to snap these photos in some unspecified wooded area, as the Doctor and Graham infiltrate an industrial factory.

It’s impossible to gauge the context of this scene based on a horde of unofficial set photos, but the Daily Mail’s report does suggest that a stand-in for the TARDIS was just out of shot, which would explain why Whittaker’s protagonist is clutching on to an Asian (Japanese?) bag. Graham is also equipped with a pair of wire-cutters, so perhaps our dynamic duo are about to embark on a top-secret mission come 2018?

Your guess is as good as ours, really. Still, if nothing else, these candid pics offer an early glimpse of Jodie Whittaker strutting her stuff as the first female Doctor.

And with the actress poised to take center stage for Doctor Who season 11 late next year, we know Bradley Walsh will assume the famous companion role. He’ll be joined on the casting docket by Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill and Sharon D. Clarke.

Closer to home, Doctor Who will finally – finally! – swing its doors open to a female Doctor this festive season thanks to “Twice Upon a Time.” The star-studded special will also signal Peter Capaldi’s final appearance in the hit BBC series, and director Rachel Talalay recently called Capaldi’s regeneration scene a “tour-de-force.” December 25th is the date for your diaries, folks.
