Pearl Mackie teases Doctor Who Christmas special, her future in show

Pearl Mackie has been chatting about what to expect from Doctor Who: Twice Upon A Time…

We’ve got just over two months left of Peter Capaldi’s tenure in the TARDIS in Doctor Who. In this year’s Christmas special, Twice Upon A Time, Capaldi will regenerate into Jodie Whittaker, in what promises to be an emotional episode.

Pearl Mackie, who plays Bill of course, has been chatting about what to expect come Christmas Day and she said to the Radio Times that “I’d say have a box of tissues close at hand”.

“As to be expected: it’s Peter’s last episode as the Doctor and my last episode as well”.

Mackie also teased that we may now have seen the very end of her character in the show, adding that “one of the wonderful things about Doctor Who is that the world of possibilities is endless. So I guess never say never…”

That said, Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor will travel with a new companion in series 11 of the show, and Mackie’s stay in Doctor Who will – for the time being at least – also be over this Christmas…
