Chas­ing the new doc­tor

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - THE WRAP UP... -

Bradley Walsh has stood on the cob­bles in Corona­tion Street, be­fore the big board on The Chase and on the stage at the Lon­don Pal­la­dium. Now the Bri­tish ac­tor and TV host is to step into the Tardis as Doc­tor Who’s new­est companion.

A source says, “Bradley is su­per-ex­cited to be join­ing the cast of Doc­tor Who in such a key role.”

Bradley (57) is strongly be­lieved to have been cast as the side­kick to the first-ever fe­male Time Lord, Jodie Whit­taker (35). The new job means his sched­ule will be jam-packed – as well as host­ing the pop­u­lar game show The

Chase, he also presents Tonight at the Lon­don Pal­la­dium.

A friend says Bradley, who played Danny Bald­win on

Coro, will cut back on some other work to en­sure the

Doc­tor Who role won’t af­fect The Chase.

“He loves that show. He’s de­lighted to have found a way to make it work.”
