Sandra Oh talks about setting on BBC America’s Killing Eve as her first post-Grey’s Anatomy regular role
"I feel very much in a completely different in separate world with Killing Eve," she said at the TV press tour, comparing her title character on the BBC America thriller with Dr. Cristina Yang. "I was happy for the departure. They are both determined characters but I'm so interested with Eve in her frazzled-ness and how she doesn't have things under control. How she's quite insecure and has not found her voice. That's initially what gravitated me toward this project.”

Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor Who looks like it takes inspiration from past Doctors
Whittaker’s bright look seems to be inspired by Tom Baker and Peter Davison — and not Robin Williams, as Joanna Robinson notes. Baker and Davison were consecutive Doctors from 1974 to 1984. Robinson adds that Davison serving as inspiration would be funny considering he wasn’t too keen on having a female Doctor Who. She also notes that it wasn’t too long ago, during the Matt Smith era, that the Doctor wore suspenders. Read another in-depth breakdown of Whittaker’s outfit. ALSO: Why does Whittaker’s Tardis look so different?
