Jodie Whittaker’s first series of Doctor Who is nearly upon us, and around the world fans are counting the days until they’ll see her new Thirteenth Doctor in action.


And within that excitement there are a few questions. What will her version of the Doctor be like? How much of herself has she put into the character? Which of her previous roles should we watch before we see her in Doctor Who? And what’s Jodie Whittaker like when the cameras stop rolling?

After visiting the set earlier this year, we answer all those questions and more in the first edition of the Radio Times Doctor Who podcast, with Sarah Doran and Huw Fullerton looking back on everything we’ve learned so far about the Thirteenth Doctor and the woman playing her.

Listen now for some behind-the-scenes insight, predictions for what we might expect and our hopes for Doctor Who‘s eleventh modern series as we get ever-closer to its release.
