The Doctor’s New Companions Announced
♦ Looking at its social media channels, the BBC has just announced the actors joining Doctor Who as the The Thirteenth Doctor’s companions. And bucking the trend of the last few years, it appears that the Doctor will have three new friends to travel with for new her adventures in space and time, with thanks to comicon.com for the story…
According to the BBC One Facebook and Twitter accounts, Mandip Gill will play Yasmin, Tosin Cole will play Ryan, and rumoured favorite Bradley Walsh will join them as Graham. It is uncertain at the moment if all three characters will all travel in the TARDIS at the same time, but if they do, then it will echo the show’s original concept. When the show began back in 1963, it featured two London schoolteachers, one of their pupils and her very eccentric grandfather, the mysterious Doctor (William Hartnell).
The Thirteenth Doctor Jodie Whittaker makes her debut later this year in the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas Special, called “Twice Upon A Time.”
