Meet the Cast of the New Series of Doctor Who


When Jodie Whittaker takes over as the Thirteenth Doctor on the global hit show
next year, she will be joined by an all new regular cast. BBC announces today
that Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill will line-up as the new
regular cast on Doctor Who.

Bradley will star as Graham, Tosin will play Ryan and Mandip will
play Yasmin. Also joining the series in a returning role is Sharon D Clarke.

New head writer and executive producer Chris Chibnall, who made the
decision to cast the first ever woman in the iconic role, is also shaking
up who will travel with the Doctor in the TARDIS, with a team of new characters.
In more exclusive news, it is confirmed that the new series will be a ten week
run of fifty minute episodes in Autumn 2018, kicking off with a feature
length hour for the opening launch.

Chris Chibnall says: “The new Doctor is going to need new friends. We’re thrilled
to welcome Mandip, Tosin and Bradley to the Doctor Who family. They’re three
of Britain’s brightest talents and we can’t wait to see them dive into brand new
adventures with Jodie’s Doctor. Alongside them, we’re delighted that Sharon
D Clarke is also joining the show."

Jodie Whittaker says: "I am so excited to share this huge adventure with
Mandip, Tosin and Bradley. It's a dream team!"

Bradley Walsh says: “I remember watching William Hartnell as the first Doctor.
Black and white made it very scary for a youngster like myself. I was petrified
but even though I’d watch most of it from behind the sofa through my fingers,
I became a fan. I then queued up for ages to get into the Carlton picture house
in Watford to watch the great Peter Cushing appear as the Doctor in a full length
feature film made in glorious colour. Am I thrilled to be part of this whole ground
breaking new dawn for the Doctor?? Oh yes!”

Mandip Gill says: “I am over the moon to be joining the Doctor Who family.
This is an iconic show with an amazing fanbase and I look forward to everything
that brings. Certain roles seem unattainable and this is one of those, so much
so I didn't believe it to be true for the first few weeks. To be working alongside
the likes of Jodie, Bradley and my old friend Tosin is thrilling. This show is worlds
away from the work I've done previously and that's the part that excites me the most.”

Tosin Cole says: "I'm grateful and excited to be a part of this journey with
the team. I'm looking forward to jumping in this Doctor Who universe."

Matt Strevens, Executive Producer, BBC Studios says: “I am thrilled to welcome
Bradley, Mandip and Tosin to the new Who family. Working with three such
talented actors is going to be a lot of fun. The Doctor is in fine company.”

Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama says: "The casting of Mandip, Tosin
and Bradley is a mark of the new creative ambition Chris is bringing to Doctor Who.
He's already made history with the casting of Jodie. These three new
characters complete a new and utterly unmissable team aboard the TARDIS."

Doctor Who is a BBC Studios production for BBC One and a BBC America
co-production. BBC Worldwide are the international distributors for Doctor Who.

That is very exciting news! I've been hoping for a change-up in the companion department for a while. It was getting repetitive having a 21st century 20-30 year old British female main companion every time. I loved the close-knit family unit the Doctor had with Amy, Rory, and River. This has me so stoked for the next season.

It would be interesting to see a companion from a different time period, or even an alien companion.
