Jodie, who is bowing out after a three-year stint as the Doctor, explained: “We started filming late because of Covid. So it was a tentative time because none of us had shot during the pandemic. “It was my last series and I knew it would be very different – we weren’t able to travel, we couldn’t be tactile in that way we were [before]. “It was emotional to start with as you hadn’t seen anyone and everyone has gone through so much to get to the first day.

“And you want to make sure you’re not the person to make a mistake, as the domino effect can be so catastrophic on the set.”

The 39-year-old welcomed comedian John Bishop, 54, as a new sidekick alongside returning Mandip Gill, 33. She said: “Getting to know John has been wonderful. He came in at 110 per cent with his energy and enthusiasm.”

John said: “I’ll be honest, as a life experience it’s one of the best things that I’ve done since I’ve managed to get into this world of showbusiness.”

Among the actors appearing in upcoming episode The Halloween Apocalypse are Sara Powell and Gerald Kyd.

Sara, known for Unforgotten, said the job is “top of any actor’s wish list” while ex-Casualty star
