New Doctor Who Companion Revealed

Doctor Who

During the halftime show of the FA Cup semi-final match, the BBC revealed the new companion coming to Doctor Who in Series 10 in 2017.

Pearl Mackie will play "Bill," the series' latest companion. You can see her introduced in a video tweeted out by the official BBC America Doctor Who account below.

She will replace Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald, who exited at the end of Series 9, and joins Peter Capaldi as the Doctor.

Doctor Who Series 10 will be an exciting time of transition for the series, as it is both the first Series for the new companion, and the final series for showrunner Steven Moffat.


Doctor Who will return for the annual Christmas Special on Christmas Day 2016.
