As you probably heard over the weekend, the BBC has revealed the Doctor’s newest companion and her name is Bill. Played by Pearl Mackie, Bill is a newcomer to the Doctor and his adventures, which is wonderfully refreshing when she has questions about Daleks and why they’re dangerous.
Something tells me The Doctor’s going to have his hands full with this one.
Oh, and did you notice the Purple Rain shirt? Indeed, Mackie inadvertently used her character’s intro to pay a subtle tribute to Prince. Doctor Who brand manager Edward Russell revealed that the video below was filmed nearly two weeks ago.
People asking about Bill's 'Prince' T-shirt in Friend From The Future. It was shot 11 days ago. Just a very WEIRD coincidence #DoctorWho
