With Jodie Whittaker’s final episode of Doctor Who just a few months away, fans are expecting some big things from the centenary special.

Speculations have already begun, and for now, we’re still none the wiser at what the Doctor Who creators have in store for us, but Jodie herself may have given us a little hint.

One of the rumours flying around about her regeneration episode centres around her former series companion Bradley Walsh (who left the series at the start of 2021) and his return for Jodie’s final goodbye.

Speaking with current co-star John Bishop on his Three Little Words podcast, the pair looked back at the final day of filming.

Bishop revealed: “We had a moment when we finished Doctor Who. We went out for a dinner, and we got talking about it, and I just…I just burst out crying.

“Because [of] these relationships that I’d established with people that I wasn’t expecting to establish.

Whittaker added: “There was me, Madip (Gill), Brad (Walsh), and you, and we were in this private dining room, weren’t we? And we just all became completely over-emotional”.

She went on: “Brad like dived up, started giving you a massive hug. We just all... because also why we were upset and why we were all so emotional about it, was because there was just so much joy.”

Prior to this, images of Walsh on location with Bishop and other cast members were circulating on Twitter before getting deleted.

His character, Graham, bowed out of the series after deciding to stay on earth with his Grandson Ryan at the end of the New Year’s Day special, ‘Revolution of the Daleks’, but he may be back to say goodbye to the thirteenth Doctor before she regenerates.

Walsh’s involvement in dinner with the cast after shooting the final episode certainly suggests he could be.

Of course, this is all speculation at the moment, and nothing has been officially confirmed, but we really hope it is true.

Doctor Who ‘Legend of the Sea Devils’ airs on BBC One this spring.
