Out Now: Get to Know New Doctor, Ncuti Gatwa, in Doctor Who Magazine #599

The new issue of Doctor Who Magazine is out now, and features an exclusive double interview with the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Doctors, respectively David Tennant and Ncuti Gatwa, as they chat about The Giggle and the bi-generation/ bi-regeneration/ that thing where they split in half.

It further includes an access-all-areas look at the making of the 60th anniversary finale special.
