The 15th Doctor’s Companion Will Be “One for the Ages” UPDATED
UPDATE: The new companion will be officially revealed tonight during the 2022 Children in Need appeal show, the BBC announced today (18th November). It begins airing at 7pm on BBC One.
The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine (issue 584, out now) indicates that the 15th Doctor’s (Ncuti Gatwa) companion has been cast.
The mag confirms “secret auditions” took place on 24 September 2022, with Gatwa in attendance.
No details on who has been cast are revealed, but when quizzed on what she is most looking forward to, producer Ellen Marsh teased: “The new companion! I think they’re one for the ages.”
With Gatwa’s first episode shooting in December, we might expect an announcement in the next few weeks. The director for the first filming block was also confirmed as Dylan Holmes Williams.
