‘Doctor Who’ Teaser Reveals New Companion

The BBC has finally revealed who will be joining Peter Capaldi’s twelfth (well, thirteenth if you count the War Doctor) Doctor.

Since the announcement that Jenna Coleman would be leaving the show at the end of last year following four years with both Capaldi and his predecessor Matt Smith, fans have been eager to know who would be joining the Timelord for his next run of time travelling adventures and now we have the answer, Pearl Mackie.

The actress previously played Anne-Marie Frasier in Doctors in 2014 and is currently performing in the National Theatre’s West End production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time.

The announcement was made on BBC One during half-time of the FA Cup semi-final match between Everton and Manchester United and Mackie had this to say about her new role:

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining the Doctor Who family,” she said. “It’s such an extraordinary British institution, I couldn’t be prouder to call the Tardis my home.” “Peter Capaldi is such a brilliant actor, and his Doctor is such a wacky and wonderful character, I can’t wait to see what adventures are in store for him and Bill throughout time and space.”

The Doctor himself also commented on the announcement saying, “It is a genuine delight to welcome Pearl Mackie to Doctor Who. A fine, fine actress with a wonderful zest and charm, she’s a refreshing addition to the Tardis and will bring a universe of exciting new possibilities to The Doctor’s adventures.”

In January, it was announced that the head writer and executive producer of Doctor Who, Steven Moffat, was stepping down from the show. The next series will be his last, after which he will be replaced by Broadchurch writer Chris Chibnall.
