Doctor Who spoilers

Speaking about the special, Jodie Whittaker spilled: “We’re a few centuries off where the Doctor was aiming for and we stumble across a period in history that is a first for the Doctor Who universe.

“The TARDIS knows that it’s going to China so Yaz and the Doctor have prepared appropriately for it but Dan gets a bit of a bum steer and his costume is all wrong! It’s a Pirates of the Caribbean style sci-fi, action adventure that marries historical characters with Whovian characters with a really brilliant high octane Doctor Who adventure.”

She added: “On this episode we got to work with some really exciting cast. Crystal was absolutely brilliant. And also I think, Madam Ching as a character was such a great character. I think Crystal is an actress throws herself into things 100%.

“She’s amazing, as is Craige, Marlowe and Arthur (Lee) – we had a really contained cast. There was obviously more than that but for us it was a kind of ensemble feel as were together all of the time.”

Doctor Who airs Sunday on BBC One.
