Doctor Who revealed Graham O’Brien (played by Bradley Walsh) and Ryan Sinclair (Tosin Cole) will exit the BBC sci-fi drama in the ‘Revolution of the Daleks’ special which airs on New Year’s Day. The instalment was filmed last year alongside the previous season which means those taking part have been waiting well over a year for the episode to come to the small screen. And Jodie Whittaker recently opened up about the emotional scenes with Tosin and Bradley which led to the actors having to “carry her back to the trailer” after filming had finished due to how “upset” she was.
Fans saw Graham, Ryan and Yaz (Mandip Gill) introduced back in 2018 as The Doctor’s new companions.
Last season saw the trio have to take on some of their toughest challenges ever with the Timelord.
The season 12 finale left The Doctor in turmoil after she was faced with the prospect of being trapped in a space prison.
And now, The Doctor will be left with a tricky situation to contend with as her loyal companions remain on earth, convinced she has abandoned them.
The epic special episode sees the return of show legend Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) to help the looming attack of the Daleks.
Sadly, it will also mark the end of the road for companions Graham and Ryan – who will bow out after the episode.
And speaking on a BBC panel ahead Jodie opened up about just how saddened she was to see her co-stars depart.
“The fam as a four is no more, this will be the last time we see Bradley and Tosin.
“On a personal note, I feel absolutely devastated. Just purely knowing it was the last scenes between myself and those actors.”
And the star went on to explain just how upset she had been after the cameras stopped rolling for the final time.
She continued: “Both of them had to carry me to my trailer, I’ve not cried like that for such a long time!”
“Brad couldn’t cope with it at all. And Tosin was like ‘I really can’t cope with you getting so upset’. I was like ‘waah, waah waah.'”

Tosin went on to reveal just how draining filming on the popular drama is with season 12 having taken the best part of a year to shoot.
He explained: “This is 10 months of ramming speed. it’s tough, it’s hard, it’s relentless… it really is – this ain’t an easy gig,” added Tosin.
Fans were saddened to hear the two major cast members would both be leaving together and took to Twitter after the announcement.
One shared: “Goodbye to the ‘fam.’ We’re going to miss Brad and Tosin so much. We hope we get a final Bradders Banger before they go!”
“Okay, I’m crying now. Really honestly I am genuinely upset after reading this. Jodie said she was devastated and needed help getting back to her trailer, gonna miss you Brad and Tosin,” added another.
A third speculated: “Sounds like possibly a sad ending for one or both of them…I hope that isn’t true #doctorwho.”
“Gonna miss them so much, thank you Brad and Tosin for absolutely lighting up our screens, they’ve been amazing from the get-go,” wrote a fourth fan.
But will both characters make it out alive of whatever horrors face them or will there be some unexpected tragedy in store?
Doctor Who seasons 1-12 can be streamed on BBC iPlayer now.
