Everyone’s talking about: Catherine Tate


The former Doctor Who star hasn’t kept up with the series at all, not even since Jodie Whittaker took up the helm as The Doctor.

“I haven’t [seen them] yet – only because I won’t understand them and it makes me feel inferior,” she quipped in an interview with Jason Manford. “But I know she’s brilliant because she’s fantastic.

“I kind of just jumped into Doctor Who saying, ‘Oh, this will be an adventure.’ It was a real game-changer actually in my life, Doctor Who. I absolutely loved it.

But it doesn’t make me a sci-fi aficionado! I still don’t know what goes on, and I wasn’t quite aware what was going on to me.”

Fair, TBH.
