Inside the magazine, Pearl explained how she went up for a part in "Mean Town":
It transpired it was an anagram for Woman Ten, the companion in the tenth series, because if agents had known it was a Doctor Who casting, they'd have put every client up for it. Just walking through the foyer (of the Soho Hotel) was nerve-racking, I rocked up in my Afro and bright yellow trainers and a baggy T-shirt, into this big glossy octagon foyer and they told me to wait in a room till they were ready for me - I almost ran away.Capaldi was happy to reassure her, however:
I think you looked very cool there. You didn't seem fazed, you seemed to have a life beyond the scene. It was like Bill ha existed rather than saying lines for an audition.
The full interview can be read in the magazine, which also includes a brief synopsis of each episode this series by Steven Moffat - who also confirms that the episodes of his two-part finale will be called "World Enough And Time" and "The Doctor Falls".
