DOCTOR WHO's first female Time Lord will be joined by three new regular cast members, the BBC has announced.

Jodie Whittaker, who takes over as the 13th Doctor next year, will be joined by Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill, as well as Sharon D Clarke in a returning role.

Walsh will star as Graham, Cole will play Ryan and Gill will play Yasmin.

Cole, who was last seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, said he was looking forward to "jumping in this Doctor Who universe”.

Gill, who previously starred in Casualty, told the BBC she was "over the moon" to join the show. She said:

"Certain roles seem unattainable and this is one of those, so much so I didn't believe it to be true for the first few weeks."

The Chase's Bradley Walsh revealed how happy he was to join the show after watching it for years.

"I remember watching William Hartnell as the first Doctor. Black and white made it very scary for a youngster like myself. I was petrified, but even though I'd watch most of it from behind the sofa through my fingers, I became a fan. Am I thrilled to be part of this whole groundbreaking new dawn for the Doctor? Oh yes!”

The BBC recently confirmed episodes of the upcoming season will run for 10 weeks, each episode lasting 50 minutes.
