Doctor Who‘s Jodie Whittaker will appear on BBC Radio 2 as part of their ‘Jo Whiley Meets’ series on Christmas Day.
In this hour-long programme, Whittaker will chat to BBC Radio 2 presenter Jo Whiley about Doctor Who, her acting career, and her eclectic taste in music. She’ll also guide listeners through some of her favourite tracks.
BBC Radio 2‘s ‘Jo Whiley Meets’ series will air across the festive period. As well as Jodie Whittaker, presenter Jo Whiley will also be speaking to Hollywood actress Margot Robbie on Christmas Eve. Whiley will also be in conversation with actor, producer, musician and DJ Idris Elba on Boxing Day. They’ll be speaking about their careers so far, their upcoming projects, as well as sharing a few of their favourite tracks.
This marks the second year in a row in which Jodie Whittaker will be making a festive appearance on a BBC radio station. Last year, she took control of BBC Radio 6Music for the evening on Christmas Eve as part of their ‘Three Wise Women‘ series. She spoke about and played some of her favourite bands, as well as sharing a few Christmas anecdotes. Her appearance on BBC Radio 2 this year is set to give us another fantastic insight into the life and times of our current Doctor!

Jodie Whittaker also appeared on BBC Radio 2 earlier in the year, ahead of the premiere of Doctor Who Series 11. She spoke to host Dermot O’Leary on his Saturday Breakfast Show about her experience of being the Thirteenth Doctor thus far. She told Dermot about her trip to San Diego Comic Con in July, saying:
“I found it so exciting because I’m a massive fan of cinema and television and characters and worlds, and so to see an event that is all about everyone from everywhere celebrating that in the most imaginative way – like the costumes are amazing, like you’re driving […] through the streets where you see all the crowds walking through San Diego, going for lunch dressed as Moana and Maui, it’s absolutely brilliant, and then the times when you see the versions of your character, whether it be previous Doctors or them embracing your costume […] it’s overwhelming but it’s fun.”
