David Tennant and Catherine Tate will return to their well-loved roles for the first time since the Doctor and Donna parted ways in ‘Journey’s End’ in 2008, when the Doctor had to wipe Donna’s memory in order to save her life. With the Doctor leaving Donna’s family with the stark warning that if she were ever to remember him, she would die, the question arises as to what brings the pair back together?
Wunmi Mosaku, best known for her work in the award-winning The End of the F***ing World, comes in to audition for a role, but is turned away for being black.
“Look, it’s not that kind of film darling”, the panel says as she enters the audition suite. “They’re auditioning for that other film… Black Panther Returns… That’s in the next suite.”
“It was so awkward and so painful,” recalls writer and director Jessica Swale. “It does make you feel dirty setting that scene up, knowing that it is not that far away from what [Mosaku may] have faced in real life.”
