So now we know that Pearl Mackie will play Doctor Who’s new companion, Bill. Now watch the video that went with the internet melting news.
After months of wild speculation and feverish anticipation, the BBC have officially confirmed that Pearl Mackie will be joining Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor in the TARDIS for the upcoming tenth series of Doctor Who, which is set to start filming later this year and will be broadcast in Spring 2017. This will be Steven Moffat’s final series as showrunner before handing over to Chris Chiball for Series 11 onwards.
If what we’ve seen so far (which we know isn’t much!) is anything to go by, then there’s lots to look forward to! Bring on 2017!
