Joanna Page cast in Doctor Who 50th anniversary special

Joanna Page Recalls The Day of the Doctor Shoot

Joanna Page was recently a guest on ITV’s Loose Women. Among the topics discussed was her role in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode, The Day of the Doctor.

Page spoke about wanting to take the year off from acting after giving birth to her daughter, Eva.

You don’t expect three weeks after giving birth for them to phone and say ‘Will you play Elizabeth I?’ I said ‘Yes, OK, but [my daughter]’s coming with me, and I think they knew not to mess with me, I was like a lioness. I was ‘I’m feeding, this is when she gets fed, she’s coming on set, she’s coming everywhere with me’, and that’s what happened. But everyone was just great.

Joanna also mentioned what it was like during filming of the episode, set to air in a worldwide simulcast on 23rd November.
One day I was about to get on the back of a horse with David Tennant and James, my husband, drove in in the car with Eva, said ‘She needs feeding’ so I got off the horse, got in the back of the car, ripped open the bodice and Elizabeth I was breast feeding! That’s a working mum for you.

Joanna Page is currently starring in ITV’s Breathless. You can catch this edition of Loose Women on the  ITV Player.

Rebecca is new to the Who world, having only recently watched the entire new series in a span of 8 days. She is no stranger to sci-fi though, being a life long Trekkie and has vague memories of seeing the 4th Doctor on US television as a child. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she is a fan of pop culture and loves movies and books so much she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She also likes to make attempts at various forms of art including photography and painting. Rebecca is currently working her way through as many classic serials and as many books related to the show that she can find and wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.
