‘i’m be­yond ex­cited’

Jodie on be­com­ing the 13th Time Lord

TV Times - - Drama -

Jodie is de­lighted to be mak­ing his­tory as the first woman to have the keys to the tardis.

‘i’m be­yond ex­cited to be­gin this epic jour­ney with writer chris chib­nall, and with ev­ery Who­vian on this planet,’ says Jodie, adding that the first per­son she told was her ac­tor hus­band, chris­tian con­tr­eras.

‘i want to tell fans not to be scared by my gen­der. the fans have lived through so many changes, and this is only a new, dif­fer­ent one, not a fear­ful one.’

should Jodie need any time-trav­el­ling tips, she is friends with not one, but four other time Lords!

‘i’m mates with Matt smith, chris ec­cle­ston and ob­vi­ously David ten­nant and David Bradley from Broad­church,’ she ex­plains. ‘Four Doc­tors! And i’m also friends with a com­pan­ion, Arthur Darvill [cler­gy­man paul coates in

Broad­church]. so i’m hop­ing i get some calls of ad­vice!’
