The solution to the problem is one that even a Dalek might endorse (though that’s doubtful, given that they want to exterminate us). But Whittaker reminds us 1) Remember, you will get through this; 2) Tell jokes. Even bad ones; 3) Be kind. Even kinder than you were yesterday; 4) Listen to science and doctors; 5) Stay strong, be positive
BBC America is also offering Twitter fans a group rewatch from March 26 to April 4 each day at 3 PM ET. On tap is Season 12.
