Doctor Who's Jodie Whittaker shares what it was like calling David Tennant before starting on set

When the Tenth and Thirteenth doctor collide

Since the early 60s, there have been many incarnations of the Doctor in Doctor Who, with each new actor who steps into the role adding their distinct take on the character. It's a role that is shared amongst many, and with each new incarnation stepping into the spotlight, there is curiousity of whether the new Doctor has spoken, met, or received any advice from the previous Doctors.

During her spotlight at Seattle's Emerald City Comic Con, the Thirteenth Doctor, Jodie Whittaker discussed with fans her experience as the Doctor, and how she was able to speak briefly with a previous Doctor, and in fact, it was no other then the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant!

You can watch the full video of Jodie discussing the encounter below:
