Series 11 - Episode 7 Kerblam!

Sunday 12pm - 1pm W


Another Broadchurch alum joins the Doctor Who universe this week alongside Jodie Whittaker and series boss Chris Chibnall (in charge of both shows) – Julie Hesmondhalgh, probably still best known for her role as Hayley Cropper in Corrie.

Here, though, she’s a long way from Weatherfield or Dorset as a woman working for a moon-based intergalactic delivery company, who may be involved with a mysterious conspiracy the Doctor and her chums are trying to uncover.

Lee Mack also guest stars in the Pete McTighe-scripted episode but more importantly, if you listen carefully you might notice another of Whittaker’s old murder mystery co-stars in a subtle voice cameo…


The Doctor receives a mysterious message in a package that has come from Kerblam, the largest retail company in the galaxy. Sensing something suspicious lurking behind the company's cheerful facade, the Doctor, Graham, Ryan and Yaz take on an undercover investigation at the Kerblam warehouse - a vast storage space that takes up an entire moon. Julie Hesmondhalgh (Coronation Street, Broadchurch) and Lee Mack (Not Going Out) guest star alongside Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill.
