Doctor Who: Russell T Davies on the upcoming series, starring Jodie Whittaker

Russell T. Davies

Russell T Davies has been doing promotional work for his new drama, A Very English Scandal, that debuts on the BBC over the weekend. Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw headline the new production.

Davies, then, appeared on The One Show last night as part of the press tour, and the subject of the next series of Doctor Who came up. Filming is ongoing on the show, with Jodie Whittaker starring, of course. And RTD is already a fan.

He revealed that he’s heard “it’s brilliant, it’s brilliant, it’s brilliant”, and that “down in Cardiff, there’s a real buzz about it”.

“It’s going to be brilliant”.

Filming is set to continue on the new series for a little while yet. It’s expected to debut in October.
