Doctor Who’s Jo Martin teases Fugitive Doctor’s return

Doctor Who spoilers follow.

Doctor Who: Flux has officially brought back Jo Martin’s iconic Doctor, but can fans expect to see more of the Fugitive Doctor beyond ‘Once, Upon Time’?

Well, it’s looking likely.

Jo Martin, who was first introduced during season twelve’s Timeless Child arc, made her re-appearance as the Fugitive Doctor in season 13’s latest episode, after Thirteen found herself lost in her own time stream.

While revisiting one of her old, lost memories, Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor is confronted with Jo Martin’s Doctor – a past incarnation of herself – in her own reflection.

As well as opening up about the behind-the-scenes logistics of filming such a scene, Jo Martin has since revealed her joy at playing the Time Lord once again. “I love being back,” she told the BBC.

“It’s been fabulous so far,” she added, tellingly. “Jodie’s still delicious, the new guys are delicious. You know, they’re just darlings – and I still fit in my costume.”

Directly addressing the possibility of another appearance for the Fugitive Doctor, Jo teased: “Will you see me again? What I will say is, I’ll be hard to get rid of.”

Jodie Whittaker is hoping to come face-to-face with her past self once again, too, with the Thirteenth Doctor sharing her love of working alongside Jo Martin.

“I am desperate to have our Doctors in more scenes together because I absolutely love her,” she said. “We’re always given really meaty stuff to play against each other…

“I’ve really loved it, but also she is brilliant, and she’s such a good laugh, and she’s just a brilliant energy to have on set.

“So yeah, fingers crossed this isn’t the last we’ve seen of her.”

Doctor Who: Flux (aka series 13) airs weekly every Sunday night on BBC One in the UK. In the US, the show airs on BBC America, with series 1-12 available on HBO Max.
