THIRTEENTH DOCTOR JODIE WHITTAKER AND SHOWRUNNER CHRIS CHIBNALL IN DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE EXCLUSIVES!
“There is no other job in the world like this,” Jodie Whittaker tells the new issue of DWM. Jodie also
discusses her regeneration scene and working with costume designer Ray Holman: “The very first meeting we had was all very secret and incognito. As we were talking I was completely distracted by the colour of the wallpaper behind us. I told Roy I absolutely loved that colour, and that’s the colour of the trousers.”
Also in this issue, Chris Chibnall looks forward to a new era: “What’s evident is Doctor Who’s extraordinary ability to embrace change while remaining exactly the same show that people love.”
