Doctor Who – Jodie Whittaker’s farewell

Time flies even if you’re not a Time Lord. On Christmas Day 2017, Peter Capaldi regenerated into Jodie Whittaker and ushered in a new era for Doctor Who.

Ahead of her first full series in the role, we spoke to Jodie Whittaker about her ambitions. After an eventful five years – for Whittaker, for Doctor Who, and for the rest of us – she is leaving the series. And so she returns to speak to The Big Issue to reflect on the role in the interview published this week.
