Doctor Who Magazine had an in-depth chat with Bradley Walsh, covering his career so far, Series 12 and much more. You can read an extract of what it’s like working with the cast of the new series here:

"You want to have fun and you don’t want to have a miserable day at work. I mean, Jodie’s brilliant, Tosin’s fantastic and Mandip’s great. I’ll tell you, we’re really good here. And Jodie won’t just get on for getting on’s sake. She has her opinions, and rightly so – everyone should have. She’s brilliant, absolutely brilliant. I adore working with her.

They all call me Dad, which I love actually. I’m coming up for my 60th birthday soon, so I love the fact they call me Dad."

How cute! You can read the full story in the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine (#547).
