Another New Companion for Series 8?
Will Series 8 of Doctor Who see another new companion?
Evidence is mounting that newcomer Ellis George will be joining Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Samuel Anderson for a trip in the TARDIS.
Rumours first began last month when Anderson tweeted “There’s a new member in the Who Crew, my little sis.” This was alongside the image to the right.
The announcement of the Lanzarote shoot then confirmed George will guest star in the episode, which makes it her second this series (that we know about so far). Her first being in episode 6, where she is believed to be a student of Coal Hill School.
So is Steven Moffat recreating the original TARDIS crew – an older Doctor, two teachers and a student from Coal Hill? It’s certainly looking that way.
UPDATE: According to filming rumours the character Ellis George will be playing is called Courtney. A better look at the character can be seen in a filming pic from yesterday (spoilerphobes may want to avoid) here.
