Doctor Who Magazine hits newsstands tomorrow and in another jam-packed issue, the team interview current show runner Steven Moffat on his final series.
When asked what it feels like to be working on his final series Moffat said, “When I agreed to do one more run, I thought, ‘Sod it, I’m not doing the march to the scaffold. I want it to feel like a brand new show. I want it to feel like Episode 1 of a new series. I want to leave like it’s all just beginning.”
But as one era slowly comes to an end another begins as the Doctor gets a new companion in the shape of Bill played by Pearl Mackie. Already proving a favourite with fans.
This new issue also includes an interview with casting director Andy Pryor, who talks about the decision to cast Pearl……..
“Pearl has this sort of boldness, and an ability to tap into the humour of the part without making it an overtly comic performance. From the word go, she made the part her own. She found things in the part that none of us had envisaged, and she made Bill a rounded person.”
Our first proper look at Bill will come in 2017 when series 10 hits our screens.
Along with these interviews, issue #502 contains tonnes more including……
