Jodie Whittaker reveals the origins of her Doctor Who costume

Monday, July 23, 2018

Jodie Whittaker has revealed that a striking image she found online was the inspiration for the design of her Doctor Who costume.

Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con at the weekend, Whittaker explained that a Google search looking for evocative images led her to a black-and-white photo of a woman “walking in purpose, deep in thought” in short trousers, boots, braces, and a t-shirt – a description that chimes strongly with the Thirteenth Doctor’s eventual outfit.

“The costume kind of felt that it could come from anywhere, and it should feel like that,” she said. “I didn’t want something that felt too neat and tailored.

“This picture was black-and-white, so I don’t know what era that picture is from. It felt like such a wonderful expression, in one image, of timelessness, purpose and inclusiveness. All in one simple look.

“It didn’t feel you needed to be a certain shape, or age, or gender, to wear it. And that’s mainly where it came from.”

On Friday night, Whittaker made a surprise appearance at the Her Universe Fashion Show at Comic-Con, and exhibited the outfit in all its glory, much to the delight of the Whovians in attendance.

San Diego Comic-Con marked the beginning of Who season, giving us our first trailer for the new series – and stoking excitement that will be heating up as we approach the “Autumn 2018” airdate.

BBC goes to court to find out who leaked one of Jodie Whittaker's Doctor Who debut scenes

Thursday, July 5, 2018

The BBC is going to court over last week's Doctor Who leak, requesting Californian officials to issue a subpoena – an order to attend court – to mobile internet forum site, Tapatalk.

Footage from Jodie Whittaker's debut scenes as the Doctor found its way online last Monday (June 25), marking series 11's first significant leak ahead of its premiere later this year.

Digital Spy has learned that the BBC is now pursuing legal action over the clip, which is believed to be an unfinished rough-cut, in order to protect the final product for fans. We also understand that this is an open investigation, and the BBC are pursuing all avenues to determine where the leak came from.

In a statement, a spokesperson for BBC Studios told Digital Spy that they are taking "the theft and illegal distribution" of the content "extremely seriously".

"[We] will strive to protect our programme-makers, audiences and licence fee payers from any breaches of security – ensuring Doctor Who fans enjoy the final and fully completed version of the episode when it premieres," the statement read.

Leak or no leak, Doctor Who fans have already caught their first glimpse of Jodie Whittaker as the first female Doctor in Peter Capaldi's final episode 'Twice Upon a Time'.

And former star of the iconic series Carole Ann Ford recently revealed that it was that very introduction to Jodie that convinced her a female Doctor was in fact a good idea.

"Jodie's got a very strong presence," she said, reflecting on her regeneration scene. "I saw the moment she arrived and I've been thinking about it quite a lot.

"I really would like to meet her," she added. "Wouldn't it be fun?! What would I say to her? 'Hello Grandma!'"

Recalling the team's decision to cast Jodie as Thirteen, the series' new showrunner Chris Chibnall said last year that the actress was their "number one choice".

"Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring, super-smart force of nature and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to the role. The Thirteenth Doctor is on her way."

So, let's stop those leaks, shall we?

Series 11 of Doctor Who will air on BBC One and BBC America in Autumn 2018.

He replaces Murray Gold, who served as composer for all 10 previous series and various specials since Doctor Who returned to screens in 2005.

"Welcome to the Doctor Who family, Segun Akinola!" said showrunner Chris Chibnall. We're over the moon Segun's agreed to join us, to provide the score for the next phase of the Doctor Who adventure.

"From our very first conversations, it was obvious Segun was a passionate, collaborative and delightful human being as well as a fantastic and bold composer.We'reking forward to introducing the world to his exciting and emotional soundtracks for the Thirteenth Doctor."

Akinola himself said: "Doctor Who is woven into the fabric of British culture and recognised globally. I am absolutely thrilled to be given the privilege of working on such a beloved series and to bring my musical voice to it."

Akinola's previous work includes scoring BBC Two's four-part documentary series Black and British: A Forgotten History, written and presented by historian David Olusoga.

He also scored Shola Amoo's 2016 debut feature film A Moving Image and the same year's short film Dear Mr Shakespeare, for which he received an Honourable Mention for the 2017 BSO Jerry Goldsmith Award for 'Best Original Score for a Short Film'.

Torchwood returning for official series 6 at Big Finish – with twists in store

Tuesday, June 26, 2018

Torchwood is returning for an official sixth 'series' courtesy of Big Finish – and there are some serious surprises on the way.

John Barrowman will reprise his role as Captain Jack Harkness in Torchwood – God Among Us, a new set of audio plays which pick up where the previous Aliens Among Us left off.

Released in August 2017, Aliens Among Us was presented as an official fifth series of Torchwood, with approval from creator Russell T Davies and following the events of the last TV outing, Miracle Day.

God Among Us will pit the Torchwood team against an alien god and kicks off a few days after the Aliens Among Us finale, but not everyone has made it out alive...

Joining Barrowman as Captain Jack will be Tracy-Ann Oberman as the resurrected Yvonne Hartman, Paul Clayton as Mr Colchester, Alexandria Riley as Ng, Samantha Béart as Oor, Jonny Green as Tyler Steele, Rachel Atkins as Ro-Jedda and Tom Price as Sergeant Andy Davison.

Notice any significant omissions from that list? *starts trembling with fear and anticipation*

"They are really great stories in series 6, they really move the narrative forward," said Barrowman. "I find all over the world, from Puerto Rico to Paris, from London to Pensacola Florida to South America, there are huge Torchwood fans and the audience is always growing."

The new set will comprise four stories: 'Future Pain' by James Goss, 'The Man Who Destroyed Torchwood' by Guy Adams, 'See No Evil' by John Dorney and 'Night Watch' by Tim Foley.

"We had such a great reaction to series 5, it's been a delight getting the cast back together to do more," producer James Goss said. "Now things are established the stories are more standalone, seeing Torchwood face some tough challenges – a plague of sleep, a city that goes blind, organising a funeral, and then there's an alien god to deal with!"

Torchwood: Series 6, Part 1 launches this next set of adventures in October 2018. Part 2 will follow in February 2019, and part 3 will complete the season in June 2019.

All three parts can be pre-ordered today from bigfinish.com – either individually for £25 on download or £28 on CD, or you can save money in a specially-priced Torchwood series 6 bundle with all three parts at £60 on download or £75 on CD.
