In this interview on the red carpet at the 2013 Bafta TV awards, an appropriately blonde Whittaker can be seen alongside Broadchurch co-star Andrew Buchan as a Dalek drifts into view behind her.
But the Time Lady and the tinpot terror are giving each other a bit more respect than usual, with the Dalek flicking its eye-stalk towards her before calmly turning in the other direction, while Whittaker doesn't turn around but does mention in passing that she's "starstruck" to be in her enemy's presence.
Could a female Doctor mean the start of a new era of improved Doctor-Dalek relations? And more to the point, could this be where Chris Chibnall first got the inspiration for casting his Broadchurch star in Doctor Who?
