Trust Me fans spot Doctor Who references in honour of drama’s former star Jodie Whittaker


TRUST Me fans spotted Doctor Who references in the show last night after in honour of es star Jodie Whittaker.

The BBC medical thrilled returned without the nurse posing as a doctor with a rewritten script for series two, thanks to her late transfer to the TARDIS.

And huge fan Dan Sefton, who wrote the series, wove in a few Doctor Who references for good measure.

As army corporal Jamie McCain (Harry Potter’s Alfred Enoch) woke up in hospital paralysed from a spinal injury, Dr Watson (John Hannah) mocks his fellow patient Danny as being a Doctor Who superfan.

Danny (Elliot Cooper) has a Doctor Who mug, a Tenth Doctor action figure hanging over his bed, and Doctor Who books stacked on his bedside table.

Some viewers thought it meant the show writers were “angry” with Doctor Who.

But Sefton teased that references will continue throughout Trust Me’s second series, and says they become part of the plot.

“I was kind of like, this is going to wind a couple of people up,” he told the Radio Times.

“But the little Doctor Who nods do continue a little bit longer, so it becomes part of the plot.

“It’s how he unlocks the iPad and stuff like that. It’s more than just a nod.”

The first series of BBC1’s Trust Me broadcast a couple of years ago.

The new series follows paraplegic Corporal Jamie, who lies flat on his back on a spinal-injuries ward in a Glasgow hospital.

It also stars Ashley Jensen as physiotherapist Debbie Dorrell.
