“Clara had prior knowledge of the Doctor. It was conceived as a human connected to your timeline, and therefore 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”
While he wouldn’t reveal who will be filling Clara’s shoes and taking the role, he did promise that the proclamation should be made before too long.
Capaldi has previously spoken about his longing for the Doctor to havea “working class” companion- similar to Rose Tyler- and there has also been speculation that Eastenders actressRakhee Thakrar will take the part.
There’s also a rumor going around that the new companion is someone Capaldi has worked with before. Devoted that he’s had roles on The Thick of It, Skins and Peep Show( to name simply a few) this could mean anyone from Joanna Scanlan, to Hannah Murray joining the cast.
Do you have any mistrusts as to who it might be? Let us know in the comments !
