Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole on their “Emotional” Doctor Who Departure
Walsh himself said: “It is very, very dramatic. It is very sad. It is quite sad and poignant is the word. You can expect a lot of poignancy from the episode.”
Reflecting on his time, he added: “I have absolutely loved it, loved it. Wales has become like a second home to me and being included in something so iconic and ground-breaking with the advent of having a female Doctor, that whole thing where [showrunner Chris] Chibnall sold that to me, it didn’t disappoint and I loved working with those guys.
“I love working with Chris Chibnall, that man is a genius but to also be working with Mandip and Tosin and of course Jodie is just extraordinary.”
Tosin Cole added: “It’s been an honour to work on such a cultural institution with fans across the world. The people like me on the screen come and go, but it’s the people behind the scenes and the fans that will always be there keeping the Doctor Who world alive and exciting.”
“[I’m] looking forward to having a rest though!”
Meanwhile, Showrunner Chris Chibnall promised: “It’s very emotional, I think we’ve all been in tears watching it and it’s a really important part of the special where you get lots of thrills, lots of spills, lots of Daleks and lots of emotion.
“Without spoiling anything it’s hard but we don’t shy away from what it means for this family to have its final moment together. It was emotional off-screen and it’s emotional on-screen.”
He added: “I hope it feels like a good send off to those two characters – no matter what happens to them.”
