The formula for Doctor Who, which has made it a success for over 50 years, has always hinged on 2 key points. The show can go literally anywhere or anywhen it wants to go, and we connect to the Doctor himself through his relationship with a companion. Every great Doctor has a great companion, or 2, or 3, by his side. Now that Clara Oswald (Victoria‘s Jenna Coleman) is off on her own adventures with Arya Stark before her unavoidable death, the 12th Doctor (The Thick of It‘s Peter Capaldi) needs a new companion. Yesterday, the BBC announced who that companion would be with a video clip.
Pearl Mackie (Doctors) will be playing the role of Bill, a curious and inquisitive companion, who seems to give voice to the meaningless little questions that the audience has always wanted to ask.
