New ‘Doctor Who’ Companion Will Be Announced This Saturday | TV News

Doctor Who


After much anticipation, the new companion for BBC’s Doctor Who will finally be unveiled this Saturday (23 April); meaning the Doctor won’t be rattling around the TARDIS alone for much longer… Bizarrely, the big reveal of Peter Capaldi‘s new co-star will take place at half time of the FA Cup semi-final between Everton and Manchester United during Match of the Day.


There has been a vacancy alongside the Doctor following Jenna Coleman‘s decision to bow out of the sci-fi show in order to star as Queen Victoria in ITV’s upcoming drama Victoria. One actress among the speculation for the part has included former Eastenders star Rakhee Thakrar – who recently departed from the square and her character Shabnam Masood in order to pursue other projects.


The match will kick-off at 5.15pm on BBC One; meaning news of the Twelfth Doctor’s newest companion will hit at around 6pm.
