Sharon D Clarke has shared further details on who she’ll be playing in the upcoming eleventh series of Doctor Who.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Clarke revealed that her character – previously described as having a ‘returning role‘ in the series – will be closely connected to at least one member of the show’s new TARDIS team:
“I am a human, and Bradley Walsh is my husband, and he’s human, and I think that’s about as much as I can tell you.
“I’m not sure if I can even tell you that, to be honest! I might have to kill you.”
“Jodie is phenomenal. She’s just joy, absolutely joy. She’s gonna slay it.
“And what’s lovely about Jodie […] because she always plays these kind of dour characters who are downtrodden, [is to play] someone who’s up and hopeful and fighting crime – she’s just bouncing around the set.
“She’s definitely earning those two hearts that the Doctor has. She’s wonderful, I absolutely adore her.”
