Unless you have been living under a stone, it will have been almost impossible to escape the endless PR surrounding the launch of the next series of Doctor Who on Saturday night at 7.20pm on BBC One.
That’s Saturday night at 7.20pm on BBC One.
It was almost laughable how many times this phrase was repeated on The One Show on Wednesday. The phrase was more pervasive, and almost as irritating, as the Money Supermarket ad in the hour-long magazine programme.
The mantra was of course further justified by the presence of the Doctor’s new companion, played by Pearl Mackie, around whom the whole show was constructed. Ms Mackie certainly has a charismatic and easy manner which disguised the sense of overwhelm that she explained to Matt Baker and Angela Scanlon she now carried.
