Intel: New Doctor Who companion revealed! 


According to the BBC the newest companion to travel with The Doctor in the TARDIS will be announced this Saturday during the half-time break of the FA Cup semi-final game between Manchester United and Everton.

There has been a literal drought for any news related to the show since the announcement of Steven Moffat’s departure as showrunner at the conclusion of the next series and as an avid Whovian I am excited to see who they will announce.

Follow the BBC America Twitter feed, the #DoctorWho, and #NewCompanion hashtags for updates relating to the announcement. We will update this post over the weekend once the news breaks.
