Jodie Whittaker’s first season as Doctor Who’s only female lead is nearly landing.
However, very little is known on what’s coming in the BBC series’ 11th instalment.
The current cast of Doctor Who have been working hard to tease the upcoming season without giving too much away.
Now, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill have opened up about their characters’ roles on the BBC hit and what fans can expect from Ryan and Yaz, respectively.
Speaking about the opening episodes, Tosin revealed: “It starts off with a bit of chaos.”
He continued to Digital Spy: “It’s all over the place… and then we just kind of gel.
“There’s more of an understanding of each other and [a sense of] knowing each other’s strength’s and weaknesses.”
But what are those differences? It seems not everyone on board the Doctor’s TARDIS will listen to her every word.
Ryan is believed to challenge Jodie’s Doctor from “time to time” which is different to Yaz, who is “completely in awe” of the Time Lord.
Tosin added: “We all see the Doctor in a different light.
“I think that’s what’s interesting. We don’t all believe what she says is gospel.
“My character does, but not everyone. You have people questioning her,” the actor confirmed.
Furthermore, Yaz will be a little resistant to the Doctor’s way of life on the TARDIS.
Mandip explained how her character initially struggles to decide whether or not she wants to live on board the space ship.
Many companions from Doctor Who’s new era have toyed with the same debate, with Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) leaving David Tennant’s Doctor in a bid to form her own life not controlled by him.
Will Yaz follow the same path? It seems she will stick with “the family” on the TARDIS by the end of the season, according to Mandip.
This comes after Jodie Whittaker revealed David Tennant’s reaction to her casting.
The Doctor Who newcomer told OK! Magazine how surprised David was to see his friend’s name pop up on his phone after being told by showrunner Chris Chibnall to expect a call from the 13th incarnation.
“I asked him about a million questions and all I remember him saying, and actually I was lucky to speak to Matt [Smith] and Peter [Capaldi], and all I remember of it was: ‘This is the most amazing thing that can happen to you, and there’s only a few of us who know how it feels’,” revealed the actress.
Doctor Who will air on BBC One later this year.
