Christopher Eccleston to appear on tonight’s One Show

The former Doctor Who star will be on the sofa for a rare interview to discuss his new Sky drama series Fortitude


Christopher Eccleston is to make a rare chat show appearance tonight, joining Matt Baker and Alex Jones on The One Show sofa to discuss his new Sky drama Fortitude, an Arctic-set thriller that also stars Michael Gambon, Stanley Tucci and The Killing’s Sofie Grabol.


Of course, Doctor Who fans will be hoping that the publicity-shy Eccleston can be persuaded to say a few words about his stint as the Time Lord, which saw him re-launch the BBC sci-fi show for a new generation in 2005 before leaving after just one series.

The One Show will also feature the FA Cup Fifth Round Draw, with Gary Lineker and Alex selecting the balls. Meanwhile, an 80 year old mountaineer takes on one of Britain’s toughest climbs, and there’s a visit to the housing project that’s helping homeless military veterans back on their feet.


The One Show is on BBC1 tonight at 7pm
