After (Spoilers!) Clara and Me left (Spoilers!) the Doctor at the end of season Nine, he was left kind of adrift. Everyone knows that the “old man” needs a human with him. Keeping that in mind, us Whovians knew it was only a matter of time before the show runners introduced us to a new guy or gal. Today was said day. We finally get the new companion.
Teasers ran rampant about the Doctor’s new gal, that she was a gal was almost a given. There was that quick teaser video of her legs running just the other day and just a few short minutes ago, BBC released the video of the Doctor again running for his life with a new companion. Imagine everyone’s shocked faces when he and his gal are bobbing and Weaving from the Daleks.
Bill is the Doctor’s new companion, played by Pearl Mackie, and looks to be more than able to stand with Peter Capaldi’s 12th (13th) Doctor. In the brief trailer shown, she seems to have a sharp mind and maybe just a touch of sass.
Sadly the 10th season of Doctor Who and the full introduction of Bill won’t be until Spring 2017 so we have a long wait ahead of us. Moffat!
So what’s the word geeks? Ready for a new companion or do you prefer your Doctor to be the lonely wanderer? The comments section beckons you!
