Out Now: Doctor Who Magazine #586 Features an Interview with New Companion, Millie Gibson

Millie Gibson talks about playing new companion, Ruby Sunday, in Doctor Who Series 14, in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine.

In an exclusive interview, she talks about what it’s like acting alongside Fifteenth Doctor, Ncuti Gatwa, and how she discovered she’d secured the role:

“I went to get a spray tan for the NTAs [National Television Awards], and I was in the room waiting to dry off when I got this WhatsApp call, asking me to join the call with all my agents. I picked up the phone and they were like, ‘Are you good at keeping secrets?’ I said, ‘Yeah.’ They said, ‘Are you really good at keeping secrets? Cos you’ve got it’.”

The issue also includes:

  • From Cardiff with Love – in an another world exclusive, Doctor Who executive producers Phil Collinson, Russell T Davies, Julie Gardner, and Jane Tranter are interviewed together for the first time and discuss the future of the series.
  • Liberation of the Daleks Part Three – the adventures of the Fourteenth Doctor continue in the epic comic-strip adventure written by Alan Barnes and illustrated by Lee Sullivan.
  • Letter from the Showrunner – Russell T Davies reveals how and why he returned to Doctor Who.
