It probably goes without saying that the companion characters in the decades-long running, highly popular British sci-fi television series Doctor Who are just as important and required to be likeable as the titular Doctor himself.
With that in mind, Fathom Events has released a new video taking a look at the thought process and challenges that go into casting a companion ahead of the series 10 premiere, which introduces Pearl Mackie has Peter Capaldi’s new companion Bill. Check it out here via EW…
In addition to replacing the most recent companion Clara Oswald, the producers of Doctor Who are also searching for a new actor to take on the role of the Doctor, with Peter Capaldi set to leave the series alongside showrunner Steven Moffat with this year’s Christmas Special.
Doctor Who series 10 gets underway on Saturday, April 15th.
