Shown last night on BBC 1’s The Graham Norton Show was this Doctor Who Series 1101 Clip. This was the one, you may have heard about, that was leaked months ago!

The Clip from shows new thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) on a train being followed by companions to be. There are Ryan (Tosin Cole) and Yasmin (Mandip Gill). The Doctor’s mind is not clear. She can’t even remember her name or even the word for thing that is in her mouth!

Shot in Univisium format!

The shots are nice and moody and shows you the aspect ratio the series has been shot in. It’s a wider 2:1 (18:9) rather that the standard tv 16:9. Like all good series (Star Trek: Discovery, House of Cards) that have used this it should add a cinematic look without going to extremes. It will also look good on your modern long big screen phones that many people use to view the episodes.
