Pearl Mackie has been announced as the new companion for Doctor Who. She’ll be playing a character called Bill. She will the accompany Peter Capaldi’s twelfth Doctor for the tenth series of the show (or series 36 if you’re still counting in old money). Mackie, who graduated from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 2010, is currently performing in the National Theatre’s West End production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time. This specially created clip is a fun way of introducing the character, but what clues does it give us…?
