Doctor Who: Glow Up Champ Shares Weeping Angel Transformation Video
With only hours to go until Jodie Whittaker (Doctor), Mandip Gill (Yaz), and John Bishop (Dan) hit our screens for the first chapter of the BBC's Doctor Who: Flux, and in honor of today being Halloween, we've got another cool featurette to share to go along with yesterday's "Halloween Challenge" and Whittaker's Q & A about the holiday season. This time around, reigning Glow Up: Britain's Next Make-Up Star champion Sophie Baverstock demonstrates the make-up magic that goes into transforming into a Weeping Angel while also taking some Doctor Who-related questions along the way. It's a great clip for fans of the show as well as cosplayers and those looking to get into make-up as a profession.
Here's a look at Sophie's transformation into the show's popular big bads ahead of their Series 13 return:
Now here's a look back at the official trailer for Doctor Who: Flux, followed by the Series 13 overview and a sneak preview from the series opener:
She's back. The Thirteenth Doctor is returning for the thirteenth series in what is set to be a six-part Event Serial. Since their last epic battle in "Revolution of the Daleks," the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and Yaz (Mandip Gill) have been exploring the universe together but with the Doctor now questioning everything about her past there, she will undoubtedly be searching for answers. This adrenalin-fueled; universe-spanning series will also see an addition to the TARDIS with actor and comedian John Bishop joining the cast as Dan Lewis who will quickly learn there's more to the Universe than he could ever believe. Jacob Anderson ("Game of Thrones," "Broadchurch") is also set to make his debut on Doctor Who as reoccurring character Vinder. Jacob's new role will see him join forces with the Doctor, Yaz, and Dan as the Doctor faces her biggest ever adventure. Series 13 is set to introduce some terrifying new adversaries and the return of truly iconic old enemies. Expect action, fun, scares, extraordinary new worlds as the Doctor and her friends confront a deadly evil…
