DOCTOR Who star Jodie Whittaker has teased ‘jeopardy’ in the iconic show’s ‘scary’ New Year’s Day special.
The actress will be killed off by Daleks and she revealed: “The jeopardy level is at 10 continually because not only are we stuck in a time loop, we are stuck in a time loop with Daleks.
“For The Doctor that is a nightmare. For us, if The Flux feels like an espresso this feels like it’s running at a million miles an hour as well.
“I don’t think there is any foot on the brake going into this episode. Because it’s a stand alone one it does feel like it’s in its own world. So if you haven’t seen the
series The Flux you can absolutely watch this episode.”
She added: “I was always moaning about that for a lot of the Flux. I’d say to
Chris Chibnall, ‘I’ve read another episode and I’ve hardly any scenes with Mandip!’
“He was like, ‘Don’t you worry. Wait for the New Year’s special. You’ll be back together.’”
Talking about her last day on set, Jodie said: “The last few weeks of filming when you are creeping towards the inevitability were really emotional.
“The Doctor and Yaz’s adventures are just carrying on and carry on well into 2022.”

As it will be Jodie’s last series as Doctor Who, who will the next doctor be?
Jodie teased: “Thaddea Graham started speaking as her character Bel and both of us were like, ‘That’s The Doctor! Why is she in this?!’ I mean I’m absolutely delighted she’s in this.
“She’s phenomenal, incredibly talented, but to me and Mandip we were thinking, ‘She should be the next Doctor.’ The joyous thing is it could be anyone.”
