Along with Jodie Whittaker, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill, Bradley Walsh faced off against a terrifying alien warrior in his first Doctor Who episode, but this Sunday, he’ll battle an even more fearsome foe: himself.
Now, fans of Bradley Walsh have a tough decision on their hands. Do they want to watch sci-fi dramatic actor Bradley, or glitzy Mr Showbiz Bradley? Bradley Walsh looking slick, or Bradley Walsh in a wig? Bradley with a Cyberman, or Bradley with the Sinnerman?
And will they have to make the exact same tough decision every week, given that this 10-episode series of The Chase is set to continue throughout the rest of Doctor Who’s 2018 run?
Realistically, of course, fans can watch both shows – ITV has delayed channel +1, and both broadcasters have catch-up services – but when it comes to watching live, people are going to have to make some difficult choices. Which one will you be opting for?
Then again, on a more positive note, this scheduling clash also lays the groundwork for a completely Bradley Walsh-themed evening of TV at some point in the near future – if we could ONLY get Channel 4 and 5 involved, we’d have a full house.
Doctor Who continues on BBC1 on Sundays, as does The Chase Celebrity Special
