SYFY WIRE's Aaron Sagers sat down with Doctor Who's Pearl Mackie and Michelle Gomez to talk about last season and how they feel about the announcement of Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor.

Mackie shared her thoughts on Bill's transformation at the end of the season and she says that, while Bill might get over what happened, but Pearl might take a while. Gomez was "delighted to see that [the new Doctor] was Jodie Whittaker," she doesn't think the fact that she's a woman is important. "I think the important part is that she's a phenomenal actress."

There's more and it's worth a look, so take a few and watch the full interview. Doctor Who airs on BBC America
