Doctor Who Video Introduces Pearl Mackie as the New Companion

23 April 2016 12:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's official! Doctor Who has found its New Companion. Meet Bill, as introduced in a video just released by The BBC. She is played by newcomer Pearl Mackie. The character will be introduced on Doctor Who Season 10, starring alongside the current Time Lord, Peter Capaldi, sometime next year.

Pearl Mackie replaces former Companion Jenna Coleman, who exited the series last season. Coleman took an early leave so she could star in the ITV drama series Victoria. She will be playing that show's eponymous Queen. At this time, Jenna Coleman is not scheduled to make an appearance in Doctor Who Season 10.

Pearl Mackie's Bill will first be introduced in the annual Christmas special coming this December. She will then become a full time member of the Doctor Who cast in 2017, with new episodes set to air in the States on BBC America. The role of Bill marks Pearl Mackie's first major TV role. »
