Would you do a Rose Tyler spin-off show if Russell T. Davies asked you to?
BP: If it was shot in London – sorry that’s a really loveless answer! There’s a running theme here, I don’t want to work much. It was like four episodes all shot in London, then yeah, I’d be like a rat-up-a-drainpipe for that.
What’s your opinion on Ncuti Gatwa being cast as The Doctor?
BP: Great! It’s just going from strength to strength, I’m so here for it.
Who’s the best actor you’ve ever worked with?
BP: Oh, that’s really hard. God, I’ve worked with some great actors. To be honest, it’s sort of insulting not to acknowledge all of them! The ones who I think are particularly good are Anastasia Hille who plays my agent in the new series of I Hate Suzie, but I’ve also worked with her a few times before. David Thewlis is also an incredible actor, just so soulful and lovely and smart and really present.
