“We were at the top of the hallway and when I finished Casualty they walked us to the canteen, they were like ‘don’t go in that door, that’s for the Doctor Who people.
“There and then I thought I’d never be in Doctor Who… Cut to six, seven months later, you know what, I’m like ‘Don’t go up there… that’s for Casualty.’”
Doctor Who will return to BBC One later this year. Gossip and Goddesses with Granny Kumar, Wednesday March 17, at 6.30pm on Radio 4 and BBC Sounds.
