Behind the scenes
In the real world in 2016, Theresa May publicly stated that she "always like[ed] to see Doctor Who on Christmas night, if possible". Peter Capaldi responded to this news, saying he "hope[d] she takes on the message of kindness and tolerance and compassion to heart." In 2019, John Barrowman went to 10 Downing Street to celebrate Burns Night and learned Theresa May also watched Torchwood.
