Just as we were send­ing this is­sue to the print­ers, the BBC re­vealed the com­pan­ions who’ll be join­ing Jodie Whit­taker’s Thir­teenth Doc­tor on her first ad­ven­tures in space and time. As long ru­moured, The Chase host Bradley Walsh is com­ing aboard the TARDIS (as Gra­ham), and he’ll be joined by Mandip Gill (as Yas­min) and Tosin Cole (as Ryan). Sharon d Clarke will also have a re­cur­ring role in the new se­ries, set to de­but in au­tumn 2018. The Beeb’s con­firmed it’ll be a 10-week run of 50-minute episodes, kick­ing off with an hour­long pre­miere. “[They’re] three of Bri­tain’s bright­est tal­ents,” says new showrunner Chris Chib­nall. “The Doc­tor is go­ing to need new friends.”
