The BBC has announced that the new Doctor Who companion will revealed on Saturday 23rd April during the half-time interval of the FA Cup Semi-Final match between Everton and Manchester United on BBC One.
The match starts at 5:15pm so the announcement should be just after six.
But what an odd place in the schedule to make the announcement. Is there some relevance, perhaps? Is it an WAG who fancies a go at acting? Or is a footballer (male or female) who fancies a change of career? Probably not.
And what are the match pundits going to make of it. Bet we get at least one “materialising” gag, probably accompanied by the TARDIS sound effect.
