Whether she’s saving the world or making us cry, Pearl Mackie says, “It felt like we were onto a good thing.” Now she’s back for one last time…
Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie) returns this Christmas in Twice Upon a Time.

Pearl Mackie hadn’t quite anticipated how crazy we’d all go for Doctor Who’s 2017 series finale. “Not at all! I read the scripts,” she says of World Enough and Time (episode 11) and The Doctor Falls (episode 12), “and went, ‘God, this is incredible.’ So much stuff happens. You know, the whole Master being in disguise – and being the guy that takes down Bill. It kind of seems like he orchestrated the whole thing. And the fact that he’s back is, like, so exciting. And having two Masters. And then Bill becomes a Cyberman… But the great thing about it, the thing that I didn’t anticipate, was that people would think that was it – that I was dead!” She chuckles

“The great thing about it, the thing that I didn’t anticipate, was that people would think that was it – that I was dead!”

Bill realises she’s a Cyberman in The Doctor Falls (2017).
