A New Doctor Who Companion Has Been CastMarch 21st, 2016
Companions come and go – maybe because the Doctor isn’t capable of long term relationships -and so it is time once again for a new companion to step into the TARDIS and marvel at how big it is. I swear he just goes through this to hear how big it is each time. He must be compensating for something.
Speaking to Brazilian website Omelete, Peter Capaldi stated that the BBC has cast a new companion for the Doctor, and we will know who it is very soon. Capaldi says that this companion will most definitely not be another Clara:
Clara had prior knowledge of the Doctor. (She) was conceived as a human connected to your timeline, and so had access to the cosmic nature of the Doctor. She understood a little about how he was. And as she was already with Matt (Smith), she knew the Daleks and the TARDIS. Now we have someone who knows very little about the Doctor.
Capaldi says that he has met the new companion, but that is all the info we have for now. It’s not like he’ll get much time with his new companion anyhow – Capaldi will be leaving the show in the not too distant future.
